Researchers Fly A Drone Using The Force, And An Apple Watch

The team at Taiwanese tech research firm PVD+ have created an Apple Watch app that allows the user to control a drone with arm movements, turning any pilot into a Jedi.

Called "Dong" (please try not to laugh), the software allows control of more than just this drone, as the team have tuned it to work with lights and a BB-8 lookalike robot. Reuters caught the drone in action, which you can see in this video.
