This BlueDrone Remote-Controlled Car Will Revive Your Inner Child

To a child, a remote-controlled car offers endless entertainment, and to an adult, the BlueDrone RC car will do the same.

While it boasts a sleek, stylish design, the BlueDrone's looks aren't its selling point. Capable of connecting via bluetooth, this RC car can be controlled by any Android phone or tablet, using a touch-screen steering wheel or the device's accelerometer (although you may not want to swing your tablet around). For those of you who typically lose the remote, this design decision might minimize the risk of misplacing the controller.

Luckily, the stylish replica car isn't too energy-demanding and has an effective range of 30ft, measuring from the phone. And to think, the developer Kickstart is simply asking for a $60 donation in exchange for a BlueDrone -- what a steal! Stats for Smartphone Steering Trending: Older & Chilly
