iPad Controlled Blimp With Live Video Streamed Over Wifi [video]

How about an iPad controlled blimp, with live video streamed over Wifi?

When you’re invited to do something for Design Week, well, you know you’re dealing with some hard to please people. Add in the fact that it’s for the after party, and will be part of a killer exhibit – then there’s really only one option: a massive pimped out blimp.

We created a modified BlimpDuino controlled by an iPad’s accelerometer for guests to have a play with. Added bonuses: you get a cockpit view on the iPad, so you can see whatever the blimp sees, and it just so happens that anyone that looks up at the blimp has their face turned into one of the exhibited Munny character’s faces.
