Flying Quadricopter at Huawei

Jim Hughes, Fellow and Chief Architect, Cloud Computing, at the Huawei Santa Clara Research Center, brought his Parrot quadricopter to work earlier this week. There are large sections of metal-and-fabric cube walls on our floor so the little flying device had lots of free space to buzz around. While the charge lasted, Jim and his technical development team took turns controlling it using an iPad and the Parrot’s built-in cameras. The staff had bemused or delighted expressions as they watched the expensive toy zooming down the walkways, over their heads, and blowing papers off of desks.
