Heli Mission SWAT Truck Makes Being Old Sting Even Worse

It's June, and most of us reading this post are stuck at work instead of wasting a summer vacation away with lemonade and the dreaded "playing outside." And to make matters worse, there's the ridiculously cool Heli Mission SWAT Truck. » 6/29/09 9:50am 6/29/09 9:50am

The Scope Dog R/C Mech Will Have You Going From Six To Midnight

Make Your Own R/C Hovercraft Out of Old Junk

My guess is that most of the guys out there would love their own R/C » 8/18/08 6:40pm 8/18/08 6:40pm hovercraft, but the bottom line is that not everyone can afford a fancy commercial version. Well, if you have some junk lying around the house, some time on your hands, and you don't mind a hovercraft that is butt friggin' ugly, you can build your…

10 R/C Toys That Are Extraordinary (or Just Plain Weird)

Click to view » 8/13/08 5:00pm 8/13/08 5:00pmMy experience with R/C toys growing up was limited because it was simply too expensive to take up as a serious hobby. The rich kids had some fancy R/C cars though (damn those rich kids!), and every once in a while I got a chance to take one out for a spin. Needless to say, I loved every second of it.…

Axon Anti-Gravity RC Racer Hovers Past the Competition at 50 MPH

The problem with wheels is that contact with the ground generates drag. So, a simple solution would be to develop an anti-gravity car. No sweat-one already exists. Sure it's only a few inches tall but hey, this thing could give your action figures the ride of their tiny plastic lives. Thanks to dual ducted fans and a … » 8/07/08 9:00pm 8/07/08 9:00pm

The Remote Controlled Tire is a World's First, and With Good Reason

No one has ever created a remote controlled tire before? Really? I'm shocked. Believe it or not, only one company was crazy enough to develop an RC tire, and that is a Vietnamese company named Tosy. In fact, because of its odd shape and apparent capability to move forward, backward, left and right-I'm not even sure… » 6/12/08 8:00pm 6/12/08 8:00pm

R/C Spy Snooper Robot is Undetectable...Like a Fat, Clumsy Ninja

According to the product page, the R/C Spy Snooper robot vehicle is "capable of entering a room undetected." Call me crazy, but you would have to be blind, deaf or both to miss a robot that measures 9-inches long and about 10-inches high when it enters a room. On the plus side, the device looks pretty cool and it can… » 12/31/07 11:00am 12/31/07 11:00am

RC Cars Smash and Eject Crash Dummies

These RC cars have four passengers, and when you smash one into the side of another, it throws them out of the sunroof like so many other tragic highway accidents where seatbelts were refused in favor of wrinkle-free suits. It would be my number one prop if I were a driver's ed teacher. [IWantOneofThose via Technabob ] » 11/19/07 3:00pm 11/19/07 3:00pm

i-Fly Vamp Ornithopter Is Both Goofy and Frightening

I'm not afraid of bats and low-flying birds, but Interactive Toy's i-Fly Vamp R/C Ornithopter really creeps me out with all its fluttering and swooping. The toy will retail for $40 to $50 when it comes to the US in November, unfortunately just a tad too late for Halloween. –Video by Richard Blakeley [Interactive Toy] » 9/20/07 10:00am 9/20/07 10:00am

R/C Dragonfly Flaps Its Wings, Scares the Cat

Get out of the way, because here comes the Dragonfly, a next-generation radio-controlled flyer that beats its wings just like the real thing. Its wing-flapping flight is stabilized by a tiny tail rotor, but no need to worry about constant crashes—it has a simplified Beginner Mode for the fumble-fingered flyer. Then… » 12/05/06 10:19am 12/05/06 10:19am

No Atlantic Crossing for the Radio-Controlled Spirit of St. Louis…

The real Spirit of St. Louis that Charles Lindbergh used to scoot across the Atlantic in 1927 may be hanging in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, but that's no reason not to covet the 80th anniversary (yeah, they're on the ball here) radio-controlled model from Toys "R" Us-Japan. » 10/17/06 5:55am 10/17/06 5:55am

200MPH Radio Controlled Jet

Click to view » 7/20/06 7:45pm 7/20/06 7:45pm
This radio controlled jet beats the pantaloons off anything we ever had as a kid. The Gruapner Hotspot Jet goes up to 200MPH and has a Jetcat P80 turbine on the back. The best part is that actually sounds like a jet. Be careful buzzing little Susie's house with this one—one wrong move and you're in for…

Radio Rodent: Not for the Squeamish

The Radio Rodent will drive your cat crazy. With its beady little red-flashing eyes, we know a couple of cats with which this little radio-controlled toy wouldn't last five minutes.

Mattel Wants Your Money This Holiday Season

I hope you're on Santa's Good List this year since you wouldn't want to miss out on some of the toys that Mattel's got lined up for the Holidays. With plenty of toys that are far more advanced than anything I ever played with as a youth (broken bottles, clothes pins, shoe laces, etc.), Mattel may be siphoning off a… » 6/20/06 1:17pm 6/20/06 1:17pm
