Undoubtedly the ultimate remote controlled Insectoid Robot, the sensational Parrot Jumping Sumo has an amazing ability to leap eighty centimetres up into the air onto objects above it using a spring loaded mechanism, and land accurately back on its wheels. Using a Smartphone or Tablet, simply tilt the device to steer the minidrone, whilst simultaneously using a slider on the left hand side of the screen to provide proportional forward and backwards movement, travelling at speeds of up to seven kilometres per hour. You can also make sharp 90 and 180 degree turns in less than a second, by swiping the right hand side of the screen sideways or downwards.
Equally the Jumping Sumo may be operated far more sedately, offering the enthusiast extremely precise control, whilst the distance between the wheels can be easily extended from fourteen to twenty centimetres by pulling them apart, to provide increased stability for beginners, and be pushed back together again when desired.
The versatile Jumping Sumo features an integral camera that can stream live real time video from its front facing lens direct to the connected smart device at thirty frames per second, exactly as seen by the virtual pilot, and additionally allows single screen shots to be captured on the Smartphone. You can also record videos and pictures by connecting any micro USB key that has at least 100Mb capacity available to the head of the Jumping Sumo.
To take a photo, click on the “Photo” icon on the piloting screen. Similarly to record a video, click on the “Rec” icon at the top of the screen, to stop the video simply press the icon a second time. You can download your videos and photos from the Photo Gallery via Wi-Fi onto your Smartphone or Tablet, or simply connect the mini USB key to your computer.
Remarkably robust made of impact resistant materials to withstand regular heavy landings, the robot runs around on two wheels making an audible response to certain command movements, just like a little animated creature. The Jumping Sumo is available in a choice of attractive colour schemes, and facial design decals are included in the package to ensure that each Parrot minidrone has a character of its own.
Capable of jumping across an eighty centimetre gap, the Jumping Sumo's gyroscope and accelerometer will always ensure that its trajectory is accurate. The Parrot minidrone additionally performs an impressive selection of pre-set animations and stunts activated by the tap of a button, including a rapid spin, a slalom alternatively weaving left and right, a slow horizontal shake, plus a similar vertical function slowly moving the head up and down.
A much faster turning facility rotates the Jumping Sumo rapidly 360 degrees in each direction, whilst the classic spin jump mode is sure to attract attention turning 360 degrees on command, then leaping eighty centimetres up into the air. Once the operator has mastered all these pre-set modes, the user can programme their choice of movements, with a personal script their own. Due to Parrot's policy of continual development, please note the product specifications may change without prior notice.
