The NVIDIA Shield is breaking many boundaries. Its announcement managed to impress the entire industry by introducing a powerful portable gaming console that runs Android and can even stream computer games. But all the fun doesn’t end there, as it is powered by Android and that opens many doors.

We have all seen the Parrot AR Drone, right? It is a cool toy we see at every convention, but this time we are a bit more excited about it. The company has optimized the app to work with the NVIDIA Shield and it is a whole other experience. The Parrot can be controlled with the Shield’s gamepad, while the Drone’s live camera feed is shown in the Shield’s nice, large screen.

No thumbs getting in the way and no touch/motion controls that make operating the Parrot nearly-impossible. Just like the Shield’s gamepad improves your gaming performance, it also makes using the Parrot much more precise and fun. Check out the video and let us know what you think!
