Glittery Gadget Really Flies

Silverlit iBird

— March 5, 2008 — Unique
So you like remote control toys, but are afraid to admit it because you think they're only for boys? You're wrong little ladies. Just look at this stunningly elegant iBird from Silverlit.

The dainty, glitter-encrusted gizmo flutters gracefully thanks to Silverlit's mini-ornithopter technology and four AA batteries.

"It is possibly the smallest RC flapping-wing model in existence," according to Gizmodiva.

The beautiful bird comes in green, yellow and a vibrant red and fly both inside and out. A six-pack of birds costs $49.68.

These remote controlled devices are all really cool too, but none are as geared to geeky girls as the iBird!
