    BlueDrone Nissan GTR RC Car Piloted by you and your Android Smartphone


    If you are like many Android users, you are just a big kid at heart, or at least a gadget-freak. Here's an interesting "toy" that may attract your eye, and it is quite literally that... a toy. But what sets this particular Nissan GTR Remote Controlled Car, designed by BlueDrone, apart from the rest is that its controller is your Android smartphone! Here's a quote from the SlashGear article with a full description of this little "time-killer",
    The controls for the car are only through an Android app that connects to the car with Bluetooth. The app will allow the smartphone accelerometer to control the car by turning and there are onscreen controls too. The car is 1:20 scale and is made to look like a Nissan GTR. It has a 30-foot wireless range and can pair with up to eight smartphones. Power for the car comes from three AAA batteries and the car measures 8″ x 3.2″ x 2.75″. The phone or tablet has to be running Android 2.1 or higher to run the app.
    Interestingly, it appears that this great little idea is being funded using the entrepreneurial website, Kickstarter.com. The car and app will only sell for $59 bucks, but the company, BlueDrone needs to raise $200,000 in pre-order capital in order to get the project off the ground. The website indicates that this project will only be funded if at least $200,000 is pledged by Sunday Aug 14, 11:00pm EDT. They have 47 backers and over $3k collected already, but only 25 days left to move forward. Obviously, we don't officially endorse it, but it looks intriguing enough to share with you, and let you decide. What do you guys think?

    Hopefully they get the capital and make it before someone that has the capital makes one. Nothing more irritating.
