Who cares about classic bumper cars when the Bionic Bopper Car takes things to a whole new level? As though inspired by the robots in the new film 'Real Steel,' or even cargo-loading exo suit in the cult classic 'Aliens,' this cute contraption lets people duke it out safely while still experiencing the real thing.

Brought to us by Hammacher Schlemmer, the Bionic Bopper Car combines the playful concept and look of the carnival staple while tweaking it for a more hands-on experience. The addition of pneumatic-powered arms and fists, which are controlled by a set of joysticks inside the safety of a steel cage, really bring a more sense of adventure to this otherwise cathartic game. Points are scored every time a successful blow sends the opposing robot's head back. Stats for Robotic Bumper Cars Trending: Older & Chilly
