It seems that toys just aren’t as interesting to kids if they don’t light up. Shoes? Put some lights in the sole and they’re ready to go. Bouncy ball? Adding in lights means it will be played with three more times than it would’ve been otherwise. When it comes to remote-controlled cars, you have to be ahead of the game if you want to charge $150 for one. So what do you think it has on it?
Lights. The Rover 2.0 Wireless Spy Tank has a bit of a Tron feel, but that’s only the gimmick aspect. It can actually do awesome things like stream and record video using night vision, and directly load it onto a social media site. The cherry on top is that this thing is controlled by an app on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. You can man the camera, hear and respond to things through the on-board speaker and microphone on the Rover, and control the headlights from 200 feet away. This thing has the potential to be a great gift for kids, but it could also be fun for adults who like to use warrior ninja robots.
