Laser Combat Cars. Nowadays you can’t turn round and spit without hitting some laser equipped piece of junk running at you, skulking in corners, flying overhead or looking balefully down its nose. These little doozies go one further by letting you indulge in two player fun all by yourself (all together now, aaahhh..) That’s right, switch one to auto-pilot and use the other to zap and blast at will. It’s interesting to remember that there’s probably more intelligence in these things than in most heads of state you read about in the news. $99.95.
These remote-controlled cars have infrared lasers that are fired by the handheld remotes, allowing two users to engage in combat, or one of the cars can be switched to artificial intelligence mode, enabling one player to battle a microprocessor-controlled car. The remote controls use digital proportion trim to move the cars forwards, backwards, right, and left, including clockwise and counterclockwise pivots that allow you to turn quickly and fire at your opponent. During combat, the lasers are aimed by directing the front of the car at your opponent, and the lasers can be fired without limit, while each shot causes the laser cannon to recoil.
