Tegra Note

There has been buzz surrounding a Tegra Note tablet floating around for the past month, but with no official word from NVIDIA, it was all up in the air.

So, what happens when you pair said controller, complete with joysticks and triggers, with a new Parrot AR Drone 2.0? Pure nerd magic.  (more…)
