Remote controlled cars have always been a soft spot for kids and grownups alike. The concept of controlling these cars has been standard and has not changed much over the years. iHelicopters is looking to change this concept to an extent by introducing the iW500 RC car that allows you to control it using your iOS device. That’s right! One now has the ability to use their iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to control this iW500 RC car.
The iDevice controlled RC Car
The cool technology doesn’t end here, apart from using an iDevice to control it; the iW500 can also climb walls and drive up walls and move along the ceiling. The ability for RC cars to drive up walls and ceilings is by no means new technology, but having the ability to use an iOS device certainly is. The RC car is controlled by attaching a transmitter in the charging dock of the Apple iDevice. To scale walls and drive on ceilings, there are vacuums on the car that allows these possibilities.
This Wall Climbing Car features three settings which are vacuum on, vacuum off and off. Besides this, the car can also be transformed into a race car when the vacuum is off. These are pretty amazing capabilities for a remote controlled car that uses an iDevice to control it.
