MOTO TC Rally adds a dash of excitement to your work desk
You know what they say – all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy (or Jill a dull girl if you want to be politically correct in this day and age). Hence, what are some of the games which you could whip up in a jiffy that is fun as well as stress relieving? Of course, the smartphone and tablet platforms do offer their fair share of gaming titles, but how about something a little less modern, more rustic and is a throwback to the past despite building a bridge to the future? This is what the MOTO TC Rally from Griffin Technology is all about, as it comes in the form factor of a touch-controlled race car.
Whenever a compatible device is paired with the free MOTO TC Rally app, you are able to gain full control of the car, allowing you to drive, maneuver and race using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Erica Kyle, Youth Product Line Manager at Griffin, shared, “MOTO TC Rally isn’t your typical remote-controlled car. We’ve added fun features like the Bump ‘n Run mode that uses impact sensors to detect bumps from other drivers and create an ultra-realistic racing experience so you can get competitive with friends.”
The MOTO TC Rally will be a whole lot more expensive compared to an actual app of course, as it retails for $99.99 a pop. Of course, the amount of money that you fork out for it should commensurate with the kind of gaming joy you get from it. It will hook up to your iOS-powered devices using Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE v4.0), where it boasts of super quick maneuvering capabilities thanks to proportional steering, impact sensors which are capable of detecting bumps and crashes while changing the way the car handles, a fully independent, shock-absorbing suspension, power rear-wheel drive, and ground effect lighting.
Android, Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry OS users will have to sit this one out, unfortunately.
