Weekly Linfest

This week was dominated by the Parrot’s ARDrone, which is just about the coolest toy I’ve seen in a while, made even cooler by augmented reality from our friends at int13. Other AR news articles making the rounds this week:

Our weekly video comes from Techcrunch (3), and I’m quite sure most of you will find it non-AR.

Have a great week!
