We’ve already previously noted just how much the radio control gadget market has changed over the past year or so, as component costs plummet and cool designs become affordable, and nowhere is this more evident than with model aircraft for the enthusiast and funster.
Take this Voice Controlled Sonic Helicopter for example. Not only does it feature a very useful gyro function to help with flight control (R/C helicopters are notoriously tricky to fly as a norm), but it also comes with a crazy voice control function, which lets you fly the thing by simply issuing vocal commands into the supplied microphone headset. Yowsa!
Now we’re not saying that this is weird, but for some reason we can’t help thinking that it’s just going to encourage a whole new breed of indolent users, who can’t even be bothered to summon up the energy to twiddle a few levers to get the thrill of control. Sad or what? Anyhoo, it’s here and it’s priced at a ridiculously reasonable $37.30 with free shipping, so couch potatoes, start your engines.
