Hot Wheels Is Making R/C Tesla Cybertrucks

Hot Wheels Is Making R/C Tesla Cybertrucks
While hundreds of thousands of people put down a $100 deposit for an opportunity to buy Tesla’s Cybertruck when it eventually goes into production, I’d bet that only a small portion of those people will actually end up buying one when they find out the true retail price.

This R/C Turkey Has Four-wheel Drive
It’s Thanksgiving day, and there’s no better way to celebrate the holiday than with some delicious, stuffed turkey. And while you might yours stuffed with cornbread and celery, I like mine stuffed with lithium-ion batteries, motors, and wires.

I’ve always been fascinated by those crazy looking reptiles that can puff out their necks to scare off predators. But I don’t have the time or patience to take care of a living, breathing lizard. Now, you can enjoy all the thrills of a frilled dragon, with none of the pesky cricket feedings.

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?

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.

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 that can fly like an RC plane.

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.

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.

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.

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, where everything wanted to kill you.

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.

Robotic Birds That Scare Away Real Birds: Botrification

Robotic Birds That Scare Away Real Birds: Botrification
