Martha Stewart loves her iPad, and apparently she’s picked up a sweet new toy for it. Stewart says that she’s recently become taken with Parrot’s AR.Drone 2.0, a lightweight copter that’s controlled using smartphone and tablet apps. She wrote a short blurb about it in the May issue of her magazine, according to Yahoo, and she spoke with Vanity Fair about taking it for a spin around her farm earlier this week. “It flies all over my farm and takes pictures,” she says. “It takes wonderful aerial photographs.”
