    RCTiger.com: Real-time web-based tank warfare

    We received an email today telling us about RCTiger.com, a German website that lets you move little remote control tanks around a simulated battlefield. While I was quite skeptical at first, once I started the game I was taken aback at the fun I had running little Tiger tanks over miniature trees. The system isn’t quite foolproof. The game runs from 10pm until midnight Munich time and there… Read More

  • Quarter-scale RC tank can pull a car behind it

    Quarter-scale RC tank can pull a car behind it

    Looking for a last-minute gift idea? Here’s a full-working 1/4-sized tank “powered by two, 500 watt 24 volt motors which are so powerful that it can pull a car on a level surface,” according to the Sun. The tank is a six-foot long replica of a German King Tiger, with “a fully working turret and a 2ft long gun with realistic recoil action.” Wow. While you won’t… Read More

    Incredibly tiny RC helicopter: prototype for Dune Hunter-Killer?

    Fear is the mind-killer. And this thing will kill more than that once the technology is co-opted by the treacherous Harkonnens — or your roommate. This tiny RC copter is available from Thinkgeek for $50 and would work perfectly to administer a dose of lethal poison to a sleeping kwisatz haderach. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s time to read you some Dune! Or… Read More

  • Wow: Bottles, an RC car, and the Super Mario theme

    If you’re reading this from the office and you can’t view YouTube videos, you should consider going home on your lunch break to watch this. I’ve seen some cool shit before, but this is some of the coolest shit that ever shat. Nice work, whoever you are. via Geekologie Read More

  • RC controlled by N95

    This is a pretty neat mod from ShakerRacer that uses the N95′s accelerometer via Bluetooth. Are our recent N95 winners willing to rig an RC with Bluetooth and test this out for us? Read More

  • RC a human tonight in NYC

    RC a human tonight in NYC

    In case you’re bored tonight around 8:30 PM EST. Imagine being able to control people by telling them what to do, what to say, and where to go. Imagine being able to see and hear the world around them as each new scenario unfolds. With the launch of modmylife.com, this strange new brand of entertainment has arrived. Mod My Life Read More

    Locate and Control Your Whip From Anywhere

    Before the glitz and glamour of the smartphones (I secretly hate) and other cool stuff (crap) I’ve embraced from the gadget/gear world I used to fuss around with cars. Say what you will about the Fast and The Furious hoopla from yesteryear, but modding Civic’s, Jetta’s, Golf’s and old 3-series Beemer’s was a lot of fun. Sure, I wasted a few thousand dollars on engine… Read More

  • Beverage Buddy Could Be My New Best Friend

    Beverage Buddy Could Be My New Best Friend

    Nothing too fancy here, just a radio-controlled car that looks like a dune buggy — wait — what’s that I see? Two frosty beverages being driven to me? Now that looks like it might be worth buying. Well, it would be worth buying if it wasn’t $49.95, and if I had somebody standing at the fridge that knew what to do when this little guy came rolling up to them without any… Read More

  • Micro Mosquito

    We got to take a look at the ultra-cool Micro Mosquito from InterActiveToy on Wednesday and it was really neat. It’s a tiny little RC helicopter with two blades that can hover, making it perfect for Predator drone-like attacks on your fellow office-mates. It worked extremely well but, like all RC helicopters, traversing a New York apartment might be a bit of a challenge. If you’re… Read More
