Remote Controlled “Tupperware Turret”

Posted in DIY by Reuben Drake on April 1st, 2011

Need a turret, but don’t exactly have the materials to armor it and make it tough? Well, just cram a PIC microcontroller, servo, IR receiver, and a sawed-off Airsoft gun into some Tupperware and you are good to go.

This “Tupperware Turret Airsoft Gun“ will deliver a Tupperware party like your mother has never seen. It makes a great non-lethal remote sentry device for your home. It comes from the mind of Chris over at PyroElectro.

World’s first remote-controlled gaming computer

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2010

Meet the world’s first remote-controlled gaming computer. It’s built from a Thermaltake case and built on top of a motorized, remote-controlled base. Oh and there’s also a robotic arm. Now that’s what I call a computer.

Sadly it doesn’t shoot lasers, but I’m sure that is just one mod away from happening. This one could be R2-D2′s long lost cousin. I’m pretty sure I saw this thing in a Jawa Sandcrawler.

Motionlite’s remote controlled, retractable LED hubcap spotlights

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2010

Looking for a new way to pimp your ride? Motionlite is now offering retractable LED lights for your wheels. You mount them right behind your wheels and with a remote control, you can extend the six-inch arm and activate the LED throwing light directly onto your rims for a cool glowing effect.

Right now there are seven colors available. These will definitely get you noticed. The kit costs $500, but just think of all the chicks you’ll get while cruisin’ around.

At last, you can fly your own X-Wing

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on January 11th, 2010

As a kid(Or even an adult) how many times have you tried to use the force to lift your X-wing toy as if you were Yoda extracting it from the swamp. Sadly, your efforts always fail so you heat up another hot-pocket and get back to your nerd message boards.

Well now you really can control your own X-wing, even if it isn’t with the power of your mind. The RCX4 Star Stryker Helicopter is a remote-controlled X-Wing with four helicopter propellers on board. It can hover in place as well as fly in all directions. But sadly I see no room for Luke’s action figure.

Remote controlled tissue boxHere’s a great invention for the next time you have a nasty cold that includes a runny nose. It merges tissues with remote control toys, which is simply brilliant. This $25 remote controlled tissue box will make sure that you always have your tissues handy.

How many times have you sneezed and desperately needed a tissue, only to not have one? No more my friends. That’s snot how it should work.

Remote-controlled 100 foot water cannon

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2009

Remote-controlled 100 foot water cannonIn water warfare, he who has the most serious weaponry will rule. And this water cannon is serious. Unlike a water gun, you don’t even have to be anywhere near your enemy. That’s because this water cannon can hit a target from 100 feet away and works by being attached to a garden hose.

It even has a remote that works from up to 30′ away. The cannon features three different interchangeable nozzles. One for stream, mist or spray. Mist would be good for watering the lawn or cooling off on a hot day.

Remote controlled Halo vehicles now available

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on May 27th, 2009

Remote controlled Halo vehicles now availableHow long have Halo fans waited for these toys? You can now own your very own remote controlled Halo toys. That way, when you aren’t playing the game, it’s like you are playing a new one. There are 3 different toys available at the moment.

You can get the RC Mongoose with Master Chief, the Warthog with 2 figures and the IR Control Flying Hornet. The last one really flies and sadly the preorders are already sold out. The Hornet will cost you $38.99, the Warthog $ 23.99 and the Mongoose $ 23.99. They will all be officially available in August of this year.

Remote Controlled Upright Pinball

Posted in R/C Toys by Conner Flynn on October 20th, 2008

Remote Controlled Upright PinballI love pinball, but I don’t think I’m lazy enough to play it vertically…with a remote. Okay, maybe I would. There may be a few benefits to upright pinball: Like not hurting your back, being able to sit comfortably, it saves space in your home etc. But at $119.95 it’s cheaper to play one of the many far superior console versions of pinball. Plus that HUGE remote isn’t a winning me over. No, it’s not a good idea to play pinball in this sacrilegious manner. You will look like a tool because that’s what you are.

R/C Star Trek Enterprise glider

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on August 24th, 2008

R/C Star Trek Enterprise gliderAs far as I’m concerned the best Trek Vehicle ever is the Final Frontier bike, but this RC Enterprise glider sure looks like a ton of fun too. It took a long time, but we finally have a remote controlled Star Trek ship. For the most part, it’s just as graceful as the real deal and seeing the Enterprise soar through the air gets my geek blood boiling.

It’s made of foam and features a touch-control controller designed to look like the communicator from the original series. Check out the video below. The thing even flies after it took a hard landing and lost a nacelle. Also near the end the operator manages to make the smoothest landing the enterprise has ever seen on or off the movie screen. The Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 should arrive in May of 2009 and can now be pre-ordered for $79.99.

Doctor Who R/C Dalek exterminates with extreme shine

Doctor Who R/C Dalek exterminates with extreme shine
Check out this limited edition RC Dalek all polished and buffed to blind it’s enemies and make the Doctor stop and check his hair in it’s reflection. This particular Dalek is based on the “Daleks – Invasion Earth 2150 AD” movie. It’s 12-inches tall, radio-controlled and features a pullback motor with realistic Dalek action. I assume that means it yells “exterminate” and generally tries to kill anything different then itself. Also has a built-in speaker that plays you quotes from the movie.

This my friends is shiny Dalek bling for eager geek hands. And since it’s very special and ultra shiny, only 1,000 are made. Should be available in August 2008, and can be pre-ordered for $99.99.

Tomy RC R2-D2 becomes see-through D2

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 30th, 2008

Tomy RC R2-D2 becomes see-through D2For some reason Tomy decided to release a new See-through R2-D2 with lightsaber remote. I guess they like their droids looking like ice.

R2 does everything that previous models have done, like move forward or turn on command, rotate his dome as he rolls, beep and whistle, and illuminate his photoreceptor “eye”. All while looking “chill” this time. This version should probably be serving drinks on Hoth. Well, it is a Star Wars item, so you might want to buy one or two less comics this month with your allowance.

The remote-controlled Blooming Bidet

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on May 14th, 2008

The remote-controlled Blooming Bidet
It’s true that most toilets in Japan have built-in bidets, but I’m guessing that not many of those are equipped with a remote control. The Blooming Bidet is, adding some elegance and allowing you to have full control over the toilet experience. That includes full control of the water spray intensity as well as the hot air aimed at your behind.

Thank God it has a huge Stop button. If this thing goes berserk and starts treating your privates badly, you can just hit it to get things under control again. Flushing is automatic, that’s why there’s no Flush button. It might have been a good idea to add one for the occasional logjam. It also has a LED underwater nightlight, a pressure sensor and integrated controls located near the right thigh.

Pilot View FPV 2400 puts you inside RC vehicles

Pilot View FPV 2400 puts you inside RC vehicles
This device explains a long held theory of mine. Geordi LaForge was not blind, he was controlling remote-controlled vehicles when he should have been focusing on his engineering duties. The Pilot View FPV 2400 is designed for use with radio-controlled aircraft and cars.

There’s a wireless camera in the cockpit that sends live first-person footage to the freaky goggles that Fabio is wearing in the pic.(Wait that’s a gal. Sorry.) It’s a pretty awesome idea, but for $549, there are probably better ways to spend the money. And let’s face it, they need to up the design of the visor.
