    This is an upgraded version of Kenji Ishida's transforming R/C car (previously seen HERE). It does everything the previous model did, plus has a streaming video camera and can shoot darts out of its hand when in standing robot mode. Me? I can shoot fire out of my hands IN AN... / Continue →

    These videos of the Heinz Automato are from 2007 (OLD!!!!!). I saw them a few years back, but apparently they're making their way around the internets again, so here they are in case you missed them. And, since we're at it -- *cue re-edited GI Joe PSA's*. I posted several di... / Continue →

    Why didn't we have cool toys like this when I was growing up? I only had one toy. And now I have wolf palm and bottle-cap glasses. Look out! Here come the Extreme Radio-Controlled Southern Belles! [dvice] Thanks to whoever sent me this last week, hit me up again and I'll gi... / Continue →

    So apparently some guys programmed a Blackberry Storm to control a little toy race car using its accelerometers. Then they posted the video on Youtube. Then McLaren saw the video and contacted them about using the device to control a real race car. And that's what they did (... / Continue →

    This is an older video of a tether car doing 200+ MPH on a circular track. At first I thought the guy in the video was participating in a bat-spin race, but then I realized he was whipping the car around to get it started. Watch the video till the end to see the thing really ... / Continue →

    The London Science Museum added metal detecting technology to an R/C car so you can find treasure and have fun at the same time. The car beeps and lights up whenever it nears a metal object. It only costs $83, so I may actually end up getting one. Walking the beach with an o... / Continue →
