R/C Airship: Like a Blimp without the Skin

R/C Airship: Like a Blimp without the Skin
Many scientists have theorized that the reason the Hindenburg went down in flames was because of the combination of flammable hydrogen gas and paints on the surface of the blimp’s skin. Well you won’t have to worry about either of those with this little R/C toy that’s designed to look like an airship.

Build Your Own iPhone-Controlled LEGO-style Brick Car
If you’ve been following Technabob for a while, you might remember the Blockcar – a LEGO-style remote-controlled car from Japan. Well here we are a couple of years older and wiser, another brick-building car has surfaced – this time with iOS R/C capabilities.

iPad & iPhone Controlled RC Battle Tank is the Future of Micro Warfare
These awesome little R/C tanks can be controlled with your iOS mobile devices. That means that you can have tank wars with all of your gadget-obsessed friends and family. They are modeled on real German army tanks used during Second World War, but these ones are palm-sized.

LEGO R/C A-Team Van: I Pity the Fool Who Doesn’t Have This
In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune.

Look up in the sky! It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s the geekiest R/C plane ever! You will believe a man can fly. This awesome Superman R/C plane makes if feel like Metropolis and makes observers do a double-take, wherever it flies.

Brave Robotics Transforming Robot Car Rolls out

Brave Robotics Transforming Robot Car Rolls out
Remember the toy car that transforms into a robot? The inventor Kenji Ishida is playing Santa to those of you who wished you could buy one. He’s selling 10 units of the latest version of his robot, which has a couple of new tricks up its robot sleeves.

BERO ‘Bot: The Customizeable Smartphone-Controlled Robot

BERO ‘Bot: The Customizeable Smartphone-Controlled Robot
Hackable toys are nothing new, but there’s something appealing about pulling a ‘bot out of your pocket and remote-controlling it from your smartphone. I’m sure that some of the flying mini drones would also fit the bill, but the BERO (Be The Robot) looks pretty cool too.

Batwing R/C Plane: The Dark Flight Rises

Batwing R/C Plane: The Dark Flight Rises
R/C toys are fun. Whether it’s driving, flying or navigating the the waterways, it’s all good. It’s even cooler if you are capable of customizing your R/C craft. R/C hobbyist Chris Allen knows a thing or two about that, having built this awesome 70MM EDF JET powered Batwing from scratch.

Remote-Controlled S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier Assembled

Remote-Controlled S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier Assembled
In Soviet Russia, you carry the Helicarrier. But that’s all right, because just like the S.H.I.E.L.D.’s flying fortress, this small remote-controlled replica made by a Russian RC enthusiast can also float and take to the sky.

Starship Enterprise RC Plane: Boldly Go Zip Around the Park

Starship Enterprise RC Plane: Boldly Go Zip Around the Park
Here’s your chance to be the Picard, Kirk or Janeway of your own USS Enterprise. It’s not a high tech starship, just a small remote-controlled plane, but let’s face it: if you suddenly found yourself on the NCC-1701-D, you and everyone in your crew might as well be wearing red shirts.

LEGO Low Rider Gets Its Bounce on

LEGO Low Rider Gets Its Bounce on
I’ve seen plenty of LEGO cars and trucks over the years. I always appreciate attention to detail when it comes to building a vehicle out of LEGO blocks. A guy named Alex Jones (aka OrionPax) has created an awesome LEGO low rider that looks like it’s straight out of a Cheech and Chong movie.

Full Size R/C Toy Jeep Ready to Pop a Wheelie

Full Size R/C Toy Jeep Ready to Pop a Wheelie
Just look at the size of that RC Jeep. Both the jeep and its controller are scaled to match the classic Tamiya Wild Willy toy R/C car. If they built a few more and put some medical tents up, we would be well on our way to having an R/C M.A.S.H unit.

Arduino WiFly Mini: Real Virtual Racing

Arduino WiFly Mini: Real Virtual Racing
A couple of years ago we heard about Racer, an analog take on arcade racing games: instead of just controlling a virtual car, the game had you control an R/C car using the traditional arcade setup.

Japanese Robot Guy Creates an Amazing Transforming Car

Japanese Robot Guy Creates an Amazing Transforming Car
Watch below as Kenji Ishida’s transforming car changes from a car to a fully working robot just like in the kids cartoons – with no help from Michael Bay’s effects team. We’re not quite sure if it is a Autobot or a Decepticon, but it is 100% awesome.

Sighted: People Flying Over New York City

Sighted: People Flying Over New York City
Sometimes I wonder why people use the phrase “when pigs fly” when they try to convey that something is impossible. Shouldn’t they say something like “when humans fly,” since scientists could one day genetically modify pigs to give them wings?

LanZilla RC Casemod: Off-Road Computing

LanZilla RC Casemod: Off-Road Computing
Having a moveable computer case won’t come in handy in daily use, but it would save you a lot of time and back pain when you do need to move or transport it. Which is why I envy Stephen Popa – not only does his PC case have wheels, it’s actually a remote controlled car, so he can have fun with it even when the PC is turned off.
