A shiny new Zik from Parrot

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, October 23, 2014

A shiny new Zik from Parrot.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It sounds like a character created by Dr. Seuss….but Zik is the name given to a line of high end headphones from Parrot.   What’s new?   Parrot’s Vanessa Loury…

“Zik 2.0 is much more lighter.  The first idea was to improve the comfort.  And after that we go into what’s inside.  So we did improve the audio quality.”

They work either wired or wireless and…like version one…will cost about 400 dollars.  On the fun side, Parrot has launched its new Mini Drones in time for the holidays.   The Rolling Spider and Jumping Sumo are controlled from smart phones or tablets, and are simple to control.   The Rolling Spider is actually a small drone with wheels that helps to avoid collisions with ceilings and walls.   The Jumping Sumo can launch itself onto table tops or sofas.  Clever and again…fun.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
