Infrared Tracker R/C Car – point and drive toy promises to drive the cat batty


This Infrared Tracker R/C Car gives the phrase remote control a whole new meaning. Instead of waggling a wheel and throttle arrangement on the controller, you simply point the beam of light onto the floor and the car follows it like an obedient and ever so plasticy pet. Apparently the dot can be up to 5 feet ahead of the car and it will still be able to track it, but do try to remember that walls can be harmful to electronics at high speed. $49.95.


 Handheld controller sends infrared light beam to the ground “magic dot” # Vehicle seeks out the infrared light beam and redirects itself and chases the “magic dot” # The “magic dot” can be as much as 5 feet ahead of car and car will still follow # Complete with rechargeable batteries with up to 20 minutes running time # Assembled easily and quickly (a full set of assembly and operating instructions are included)
