UK-based WOW! Stuff has given the remote-controlled car a 21st century makeover with the iKon RC. The iKon RC is an RC car designed specifically to be compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod.

The RC car seemed to be the one children's toy that was resistant to the march of technology. As other toys got more sophisticated and tech-savvy, the RC car got shinier wheels and faster engines. The iKon RC is perhaps the most tech-savvy of all RC cars, being controlled buy a "dongle" attached to your i-device and an app. WOW! Stuff has plans to make the iKon RC compatible with all smartphone operating systems soon, which should be good news to the kiddies with Blackberrys and Droids who were possibly on the verge of tears but a moment ago.

No release date or price has been set yet, but you can drool off these conceptual shots as you count the indefinite number of days until the iKon RC's release date.
