    Mattel revealed at the 2016 International Toy Fair in New York the latest incarnation of Barbie -- clad in pink, yes, but also riding a hoverboard that’s actually a real drone. The new doll is called Barbie Star Light Adventure RC Hoverboard. What do you think about this new Barbie?

    They actually make a "Dad's body" Ken now. His belly might crowd the steering wheel.

    Does it have any autonomous flight capability? If it doesn't, its not a drone, just a quad! lol Barbie marketing doesn't seem too tech-smart!

    These days any 3 or more prop driven RC aircraft are considered drones. Trying to get people to not say drone will be up there with calling all soda beverages 'coke' and all tissues 'kleenex'.

    I love drones. I love girls. A girl on a drone - I'm excited. (That didn't come out right did it?)
