I love R/C cars. They bring back such feelings of nostalgia of playing with them as a kid. Although now that I’m a “Grown Up” and have a desk job, life seems so boring now and I daydream of playing with those cars again.
Imagine my surprise and glee when I went over to Think Geek and found the USB R/C Mini Car w/Garage!! This cute little car and garage set sits on your desk, where the tiny Mini Cooper-like car sits neatly parked in the garage. Until you want to hit the highway, that is! All you need to do is plug the garage into your USB port, load up the software (Windows only), and give the car about 10 minutes to charge inside the garage. Once it’s done, open the garage door and drive the car out using your keyboard’s arrow keys and you can even use the space bar to honk your horn if somebody is encroaching on your desk’s superhighway.
The USB R/C Mini Car comes with Car, Garage/Charger, Software (Windows only), Instructions, and Sticker Sheet to customize your sweet ride. The Garage Dimensions are 5″ x 3″ x 3″ and the Car Dimensions are 3.5″ x 1.75″ x 1.5″. Pick one up over at Think Geek for $29.99.
One of the best desk toys I’ve seen.
