I’m pretty sure you’ve never seen an R/C plane fly like this one does. That’s because it is one of a kind. This plane dances and does an amazing ballet in the air thanks to user-edited software and an ultra-light fuselage.
Don’t you just hate it when you really need to go and there’s still someone in the bathroom? You wait five minutes… ten minutes… twenty minutes until you just give up and take a leak behind some bushes because you just can’t take it anymore.
Drones have often been used in war theaters, but that doesn’t stop this little military drone from being pretty cute. It was deployed by the British Army in Afghanistan and it measures only four inches by two inches.
There was some uproar about the possibility of using unarmed drones over US soil to locate that cop turned killer fugitive, but maybe that’s because drones have a bad rap because of all of the bombs they’ve been known to drop.
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.
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.
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.
Mad Lab Industries stays true to its name by frankensteining a hexacopter with a hexapod, driving 12 nails into humanity’s coffin in the process. Meet Hexa², a remote-controlled flying robot spider. Kill it with water!
While I’m already pretty happy with my AR.Drone 2.0, there’s no question it’s a pretty big and noisy flying machine. But if you’d rather have a tiny and quiet R/C flyer, then you might want to invest in the Robot Dragonfly.
Don’t worry animal lovers. The Cat Car is nowhere near as creepy as the taxidermy cat quadcopter. Invented by Sam Brenner, the Cat Car is a harness that trades the proverbial carrot on a stick with the feline equivalent: a laser pointer.
This LEGO motorized Tumbler is so detailed that you might think it was made by Wayne Industries, but it was actually made by a guy named Sariel. The man should build for Batman himself – or at least change his name to Lucius.
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.
Remember the sweet flying shark Air Swimmer? Well I guess the guys behind Angry Birds couldn’t resist getting in on the R/C blimp action and have teamed up with Air Swimmers to release an Angry Birds version.
Most of us weren’t born yet back in the 1950s, but it was definitely a time long before modern remote-controlled electronic playthings. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t some cool toys back in the day – like this awesome old-school metal tank I spotted over on Etsy.
