How Cool Is This? When Apple Watch Meets Drone!

A team of researchers in Taiwan created a Taiwan wonder. Their Taiwan wonder involves a drone, an Apple watch and the ability to control the former using your hands.gif2
They were able to achieve this thanks to a programming language called Dong (adds this to programming goals) developed by National Chung Hsing Univeristy. Dong can be used to turn smartwatches to remote controls, you can also use it in turning light switches on and off.

According to this brilliant team via Reuters

“Previously we’ve needed complicated controls to fly drones, but now we can use a wearable device and through human behavior and gestures directly interact with them – using a hand to control and fly drones directly.”

Now, I know that the Apple watch/drone culture has not gathered enough momentum in Africa, but this will be a cool thing to try out, It will be like reenacting a scene from a Sci-Fi movi. ?
