Nikko VaporizR Amphibious R/C Car Goes from Land to Water and Back Again

by Paul Strauss

R/C cars can be fun, but if you accidentally crash yours into the swimming pool, it’s probably a goner. Not so with this one, which can not only run on dry land, but can drive in water or snow.

The Nikko VaporizR may look like an ordinary R/C car, but it’s got special wheels which help it float on water, and move along the surface sort of like an old paddleboat. You can even steer it once it’s in the water, though I can’t imagine that it’s the most precise watercraft. It’s also sealed to protect the electronics from water, of course.

It’s powered by a pair of motors, giving it true 4 wheel-drive traction when on land too. Top speed for the VaporizR is about 9 mph on land, but from the looks of the video clips, it definitely slows down on water.

Overall, it looks like a sturdy little ride, and fun to drive on any terrain. If you’d like one, you can find the Nikko VaporizR over at I Want One of Those for £39.99 (~$63 USD).
