AirDrop in iOS 7 is specifically iOS to iOS device, at least right now. It's possible Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks supports iOS 7 AirDrop (I have yet to install it to test), but as far as Mountain Lion and older, no support.

Airdrop is not going to work unless you find someone with IOS 7 Beta 1 as you. The function Airdrop on IOS 7 is similar to Samsung's S-Beam.
