Zero Gravity R/C Cars Will have You Climbing the Walls

by Paul Strauss

Remote controlled race cars are pretty much a dime-a-dozen these days, so I’m always happy to come across one that’s a little left of center.

Air Hogs Zero Gravity R/C Car

Contrary to its name, the Air Hog Zero Gravity Micro R/C car does not defy gravity. However, the car does turn the world on its side by driving not only on floors, but on your walls too. Just flip the switch, place the car on the wall, and you can drive up, down, left and right all without falling off. You can even drive on the underside of a table if the surface is smooth enough.

So how does this little car work it’s magic? The vehicles contain a special system that works like a mini vacuum cleaner. A powerful fan creates suction to hold the car to the wall, and a special skirt around the perimeter of the car keeps the vacuum seal.

The cars come in a variety of colors and measure about 4.75″ long. They run on rechargeable batteries and should run for about 10 minutes on a single charge. Keep in mind that the remote control is infrared, so it will only work when you have line-of-sight access to the car.

You can get your grubby little mitts from UK gadget retailer Firebox for £29.95, or in the US from Amazon for about $47 USD.

    This zero gravity R/C cars is awesome. I’ve been looking for a gift for my son who is turning 6 this October and he sure would love this remote control car that can climb walls. I am also looking at this RC Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano from http://www.pressdigital.com.au/ which is a cool collection piece. This is also a remote car with LED headlights with breaklights that even light up when you reverse. It’s good that both cars have rechargeable batteries because I’m planning to purchase the Ferrari for me and maybe this zero gravity car for the little tyke!.

    This car is astonishing in every way. The toy cars are superseding the expectations of kids on how their cars could function. This development must give inspiration to car manufacturers and see the possibilities of every machines. The question still holds on how long this race car could drive in the wall. Since it has a special suction that functions as a holder in the wall, it surely does needs lot of power source. But, I think the existence of these type of cars already satisfied the kids and the few grown ups.
