Battle Machines are loaded for bear
Radio controlled cars are fun from a racing toy point of view. But sometimes, playing with toys involves a little … well, destruction!
Okay, not really, but Battle Machines equips r/c cars with a low power laser weapon and infrared sensor so players can face off against each other in a motorized game of shoot or be shot.
The concept is fairly simple. You shoot your opponent first, otherwise your car gets hit and is disabled for a set period of time. This is like a 20th century version of chicken, without destroying your R/C cars in the process.
Cars come in pairs and consist of three kinds, a `69 Camaro, ’06 Mustang and a ’99 Silverado Dooley. Cost is about $80 for the set and they’ll be due out this summer. Hopefully, these will catch on, because it could be a real gas to equip boats, tanks and even R/C planes with the same technology. Dog fighting anyone?
