    Group hug! This is the R/C car disguised as a penguin that researchers in Antarctica are using to infiltrate emperor penguin colonies to study the birds without alarming them. It looks like its working. That or all the baby penguins have just always dreamed of having a robot... / Continue →

    This is an upgraded version of Kenji Ishida's transforming R/C car (previously seen HERE). It does everything the previous model did, plus has a streaming video camera and can shoot darts out of its hand when in standing robot mode. Me? I can shoot fire out of my hands IN AN... / Continue →

    The Air Hog Zero Gravity R/C isn't zero gravity or radio controlled. But it does stick to walls thanks to the vacuum it creates via a little fan in the roof. The 5" car gets about 10 minutes of play time on a 30 minute charge, and is controlled via infrared controller. It'll... / Continue →

    Ian Cook is an artist that specializes in painting car portraits using RC cars and wheels instead of brushes. Which, unbeknownst to me, apparently there's a market for. He dips the toy's wheels in paint, and then runs them around on the paper using a radio controller. I've g... / Continue →
