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.

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.

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.

Colin Furze’s Remote-Controlled Wheelie Bin: Haul Trash
We’ve seen a small remote-controlled trash can, now let’s check out how you can make a large one. YouTube’s star inventor Colin Furze used an electric wheelchair’s components to motorize and remotely control a wheeled trash can, or as the Brits call it, a wheelie bin.

Back in the ’80s, Tyco was a big brand when it came to RC toys. Now Tyco is back with the Terra Climber. This is the first RC vehicle I’m aware of that can climb stairs.

Hexbug RC Battlebots: Are You Not Entertained Mom?!

Hexbug RC Battlebots: Are You Not Entertained Mom?!
We’ll soon be able to conduct bot-on-bot mayhem without knowing a thing about building or repairing robots, thanks to toymaker Hexbug and its officially licensed Battlebots replicas. The robots are based on some of the most popular competitors in the TV series: Bronco, Tombstone, Witch Doctor and last season’s champ, Bite Force.

The RC Flying Car: It’s a Car, It’s a Plane!

The RC Flying Car: It’s a Car, It’s a Plane!
Is it a car? Is it a plane? It’s the RC Flying car! It’s 2016 and we should have flying cars all over the skies by now. Since we don’t we will have to settle for this weird remote controlled flying car, called the Protocol Terracopter.

Duck Chauffered by RC Car: Because, Internet.

Duck Chauffered by RC Car: Because, Internet.
What the duck is going on here? This duck is being pulled around by an RC car, because why not? That duck is obviously royalty and it is being given a parade/tour of the house, because it probably demanded it.

Remote-controlled Mini Strandbeest: Thighmiya
Theo Jansen’s kinetic sculptures are meant to be powered by wind – and occasionally a hamster – but YouTuber Maxime G found a way to tame a Mini Strandbeest. Maxime G used a couple of Arduino Nanos, a 3V motor and a Nordic RF transmitter to make the mechanical creature move on command.

DIY Gun Controlled Lamp: Lights Out

DIY Gun Controlled Lamp: Lights Out
Bitplay’s BANG! lamp adds a cool twist to remote control, but in my opinion its gimmick is not worth $400 (USD). If you have the tools, you might be better off copying Instructables member Austin aka austiwawa.

Review: SKEYE Pico Drone

Review: SKEYE Pico Drone
It seems there are drones of every shape and size on the market these days, and while the larger models are designed primarily for aerial photography, the smaller models are mostly just for fun. TRNDLabs makes a number of small drones, with the SKEYE Pico Drone being the smallest of the bunch, measuring just 0.87″ square, and weighing just 0.25 ounce.

PowerUp FPV Equips Paper Planes with a Live Streaming Camera: Fold’s Eye View
PowerUp Toys continues to modernize the paper airplane. Its latest effort, the FPV, practically packs enough tech for a consumer drone, including a camera, Wi-Fi video streaming and an autopilot mode. The onboard camera only has a 640×480 resolution, but that’s still infinitely better than nothing.
