DJI RoboMaster S1 Robot Is a Programmable Wonder

DJI RoboMaster S1 Robot Is a Programmable Wonder
Chinese tech company DJI is best known for its excellent photography drones. Now they’ve taken their expertise in remote-controlled vehicle design, and applied it to an earth-bound vehicle, dubbed the RoboMaster S1. This $499 robot isn’t just for play though, it’s designed to teach kids (and kids at heart) about…

Keg-A-Droid Is a Remote Controlled Beer Keg

Keg-A-Droid Is a Remote Controlled Beer Keg
Finally, a robot that can bring me a fresh beer on tap. What you are looking at is the Keg-A-Droid from SuperDroid Robots. Yes, it is a remote-controlled beer keg and tap on wheels. Who needs R2-D2? Sure you can help fly an X-Wing, but where’s my beer? The R/C…

The U Safe Is a Remote-controlled Life Preserver

The U Safe Is a Remote-controlled Life Preserver
Typically, when you use a life preserver, you just throw it to the man overboard and hope for the best. If you suck at throwing, the person being rescued has to swim further to get to the life preserver, and that can put them in danger for longer. If only…

Giant LEGO Space Shuttle Can Actually Fly

Giant LEGO Space Shuttle Can Actually Fly
Many fans fondly remember LEGO set #1682, the Space Shuttle Launch. It was released 27 years ago, and is a classic. Well, last month Adam Woodworth created a tiny drone version of LEGO’s shuttle that could fly indoors, which was cool enough, but now he has created a larger version…

Finally, A Literal Fire Truck

Finally, A Literal Fire Truck
Fire trucks, by their very name, should start fires, not put them out. So tinkerer PeterSripol upgraded a toy fire truck with a functional flamethrower so that at least one these vehicles can live up to its name. And boy does it ever. This thing is all about the flame.…

Indominus Rex Robot Wants to Eat Your Other Dinosaur Toys

Indominus Rex Robot Wants to Eat Your Other Dinosaur Toys
Jurassic World was one of those silly summer popcorn flicks, loaded with destruction, dinosaurs, and cheesy dialogue. In other words, I loved it. One of the highlights of the movie was the giant dinosaur with the silly name – the Indominus Rex. Now you can own a robotic version of…

LEGO RC Plane Actually Flies

LEGO RC Plane Actually Flies
LEGO bricks can build many things, but we’ve never seen them on a functional aircraft. After all, they’re not exactly known for their stability or aerodynamic properties. Believing that nothing is impossible, YouTuber PeterSripol built what he thinks is the world’s first LEGO radio-controlled plane that can actually fly. Well,…

BMW Lets Drivers Control Real Cars Video Game Style

BMW Lets Drivers Control Real Cars Video Game Style
How’s this for a fun idea? BMW USA apparently outfitted a BMW M6 and M6 GTLM with live cameras and R/C technology so they could be driven by remote control in the style of a first-person racing game. It’s a cool idea, but there may be some trickery going on…

NERF Terrascout RC Drone Blaster Puts Eyes Out from Afar

NERF Terrascout RC Drone Blaster Puts Eyes Out from Afar
Growing up, my brother was a nervous sort and you could freak him out easily with just about any toy that moved on its own. I’m pretty sure it had to do with the flick Child’s Play that we stayed up and watched late one night or maybe Maximum Overdrive, …

DonkiBot Auto-follow Trolley Robot: BigDonk

DonkiBot Auto-follow Trolley Robot: BigDonk
A few years ago we saw a concept for a suitcase that would automatically follow its owner using Bluetooth sensors and a mobile device. Omorobot had the same idea for its DonkiBot, but with a different and rather quirky execution. The robot supposedly uses a LIDAR sensor to follow its…

Robotic Birds That Scare Away Real Birds: Botrification

Robotic Birds That Scare Away Real Birds: Botrification
Birds are like deer. They symbolize nature, freedom and all those heartwarming concepts, but in truth they can be annoying and cause a lot of damage. They eat crops, interfere at airports, hang out at harbors etc. That’s why a Dutch company called Clear Flight Solutions (CFS) is working on…

DIY Remote Controlled Flamethrower: Wi-Fire
The Internet of Things isn’t just about connecting your garage door to your car or your fridge to Amazon. It can also be about connecting your smartphone to a flamethrower, as SparkFun’s Nick Poole shows in a DIY project that he made to promote their new ESP8266 Thing dev board.…

Flying Remote Controlled “Up” House is… Squirrel!

Flying Remote Controlled “Up” House is… Squirrel!
I don’t always like Disney movies. If I never hear Let it Go from Frozen again it will be too soon. I did like Up though. Like many kids, I also tried to float stuff on balloons back in the day. I never got that to work though. I never…

LEGO-compatible Remote-controlled Motors: Servobrick Pro

LEGO-compatible Remote-controlled Motors: Servobrick Pro
LEGO’s Mindstorms and Power Functions lines both have remote controllers, but shockingly they transmit only via infrared. Polish company RC Bricks wants to expand LEGO enthusiasts’ tools with its Servobrick Pro, two motors that receive signals over radio, just like most RC models. Servobrick Pro will let you build LEGO…

DIY RC Rover: All Extra-Terrestrial Terrain Vehicle

DIY RC Rover: All Extra-Terrestrial Terrain Vehicle
Last year we checked out Misha Larkin’s remote-controlled Curiosity-inspired rover. He’s been improving his model’s design and recently shared what he has so far. Misha’s earlier design had repurposed parts such as the shock absorbers, which were made of syringes. This newer model on the other hand uses either 3D…
