Remote Controlled Ride On Sports Car

The remote-controlled ride-on sports car allows parents to control the driving, or if the parents are feeling a little wild and crazy, they relinquish control to the young driver at the touch of a button. Both modes enable a top speed of 3 mph along with normal movement forwards, backwards, left, and right. Operates for two hours after a 10-hour charge. Supports up to 45 lbs.

Water Slide Simulator

Imagine going to a water park with no lines, slides that last more than a few seconds, and being able to create your own slide before you ride it. Well hopefully you will be able to in the future. If you saw this week’s episode of Prototype This that’s exactly what they ended up creating. Right now the prototype is massive but hopefully with some improvements they can scale it down to be able to fit in backyards across the world. Hopefully that can find a way to scale down the price tag as well. It works by spinning the large doughnut shaped slide with water in it, you get in it and with the help of a projector screen you can see the pov video on a water slide. The slide can rise it’s self up and down and tilt left to right to get a more immersive experience.

Husqvarna’s Solar-Powered Robot will Mow Your Lawn Without You!

It is almost officially winter time, so most people living in the Northern Hemisphere are not mowing their lawns frequently if at all. Even so, this new Husqvarna’s Solar-Powered Robot is so cool I had to share it! Capable of mowing 3/4 acre, the 18 volt, 4 amp Auto Mower 230 runs 90 minutes on a single charge and cuts 1300 square feet per hour. The Auto Mower even returns to its own charging station when its power is running low! That’s one smart, eco-friendly lawn mower!

Dice Wall Clock

Dice are associated with gambling and lady luck. This cool clock is a DIY project. The package contains a blank clock face and 22 die shaped pieces. It’s up to you to attach the dice to the clock face using the included double-sided sticky pad. How will you determine where to place them? Will you roll the dice and let fate decide?

The car for sure, my son would love it!!

This is the hardest one of all.
The RC ride on sports car sounds so cool and is something I always wanted, the lawn mower is very nice, the simulation water slide is awesome, but I think the winner would be the robot legs. Imagine how instead of the slow scooters used by the elderly, they’ll be able to walk around. Later the extra legs can give rise to all sorts of new sports. And who knows what else.

The legs seem to be the most popular, but when robots take over the world, they’ll start with this nefarious device. “Humans Destroyed By Machines Via Wedgies!”

Justin Says: November 14, 2008 at 9:56 am

Robot Legs! Amazing! A medical device that could change the lives of so many people…or something just awesome!

The water slide is great, my kids would love it.

Jason Says: November 14, 2008 at 11:31 am

I voted for the remote control kid car. I wish I had a remote for my girl’s Barbie Jeep, as they are always getting that thing into trouble!

Denis Says: November 14, 2008 at 11:34 am

Jonathan Says: November 14, 2008 at 11:45 am

I’d have to go with the water slide… That thing just looks like way too much fun! I watched the episode when they were building and testing it and I wished I could have tried it too

James Says: November 14, 2008 at 11:46 am

Definitely the water slide sim. Reminds me of that commercial about the guy who uses a waterslide to commute home. This could be really fun.

Aloysius Says: November 14, 2008 at 12:07 pm

PC Drums: I can imagine how funny this will be for my kids, since I carry out my laptop all the time.

Well I live in the land of rocks, sand and weeds but, I like the idea of autonomous lawn mowing.

Jack M. Says: November 17, 2008 at 7:53 am

Water slide simulator – neat idea.

Justin (Big.J) Says: November 17, 2008 at 5:10 pm

Krysta Says: November 17, 2008 at 7:29 pm

The auto law mower totally. Robots will soon take over the world.

Pearl Says: November 18, 2008 at 10:53 am

I like toys for little kids.

lilyruth Says: November 19, 2008 at 7:13 am

I voted for the Husqvarna’s Solar-Powered Lawn Mower, I think that it is the collest gaget. I would love to have this and enjoy sitting outside enjoying the outdoors while this gaget does all the work. No longer would I have to wait on hubby to do the lawn.. Smile

Pearl Says: November 20, 2008 at 7:57 am

That lawn mower is pretty awesome – I think it would make doing my yard so much easier.
