No matter how long I sit here, pondering this gadget, I still don't know whether it is cool or completely useless. It is really pretty simple. It is just a basic R/C car controller complete with the trigger and turn-y wheel. Plug it into a USB port, install the game and have a good 'ole semi-R/C time. I dunno, there is something about taking away the reality of R/C cars that would make it less fun. But then again this is probably cheaper than some of those R/C cars out today and allows your to wreck it over and over without busting out the super glue.
That's it, I'm sold on it. It has all the fun of R/C cars without the hassle of having to actually go outside or dealing with broken cars.
