R/C Car Puts You in the Driver’S Seat
May 21st, 2008
This cool new remote-controlled car puts you right in the heart of the action, thanks to a tiny wireless camera and a pair of POV goggles.
The VTS (Vision Tracking System) R/C car uses a VGA resolution digital camera to transmit a real-time image from the driver’s perspective to a head-mounted display device. If that’s not cool enough, the motorized camera actually responds to your head movements.
So when you look left, you’re looking out the driver’s side of your little car. Look to the right, and you’re viewing the passenger’s side. It also supports looking up and down. There’s even stereo sound that lets you hear the audio from inside the car.
The whole kit comes packaged in a custom-fitted briefcase, designed to keep your car and accessories safe and sound.
Priced at £599.95 (over $1100 USD), the VTS is one expensive little car, but it sure is cool. If you’ve got an extra paycheck or two kicking around, you can get your grubby little hands on one from UK gadget retailer RED5.
