Topic: New Parrot Asteroid Units at CES + Future Plans
Just saw that Parrot announced THREE new Asteroid units at CES 2012. Awesome!
I just barely ordered the classic unit today and am hoping for good results with it. With the new units displayed, I am hoping that there will continue to be updates to the classic unit.
Now for a DOOMSDAY scenario, what is going to happen to our existing classic units after this? In the case that Parrot ceases to support the classic models, would it be possible to unlock the bootloader and release some of the source so we can continue to support the units on our own?
I realize there is a lot of corporate secret sauce baked in there, but if you get enough support for the open-source world, you can see amazing things start happening. Example being Cyanogenmod, which is such a big great effort.
tl,dr; I am excited for my unit and hope there is a great future ahead for it.
