At a recent hackathon at an internal Microsoft event, I got to work with the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 together with an amazing team of fellow tech evangelists in Microsoft. We had 8 hours to put together a fun project with some cool gadgets that were at our disposal for the day. The team and I ended up building a Kinect controller for the drone, essentially allowing you to control the drone using specific gestures in front of a Kinect for Windows.
