Griffin Helo TC announced as app powered helicopter

Griffin's new Helo TC AppPowered accessory looks to take on the Parrot AR Drone

Following the success of the Parrot AR Drone gadget accessory guru Griffin Technology has announced it is to launch an app powered flying helicopter with the Helo TC to land in time for the Christmas rush.

Crafted from a lightweight metal frame with a black polycarbonate shell the Helo TC is the latest addition to Griffin’s recently announced range of AppPowered accessories and will allow users to operate the twin rotor aircraft from a free mobile application available for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Utilising the iOS device’s inbuilt accelerometer, users will be able to navigate the Helo TC by tilting their Apple gadgets in the direction they want the helicopter to fly or turn. Rechargeable by connecting to a computer via USB the Griffin Helo TC will sport an eight minute average flight time.

"We are convinced that AppPowered Accessories are the future of the mobile accessories market” announced Mark Rowan, President of Griffin Technology.  “It is clear to us that interaction between hardware and software is the future of the consumer technology market; enabling the consumer to get the best out of their product.”

Set to launch later this year ahead of the Christmas shopping rush the Griffin Helo TC is to be made available from Apple stores and will set wannabe owners back £34.99.
