RC

I hate vague teasers, but here you go:

Perhaps it’s a radio controlled shotgun shell vehicle like the one that gets some air time toward the end of the video? (see above)  Maybe that vehicle is full of 5 lbs of triple-aught buckshot and can be fired via the remote control?  Yea that’s definitely what it is… case closed.

Thoughts?

This is awesome:

Reminds me of the Tyco Fast Traxx my buddy Karan had we were growing up.  The iRobot 110 is everything I hoped it would be, but wasn’t.  The Fast Traxx was fragile, hard to control, had a terrible battery life, and was easy to lose once it got more than a few feet away from you.

The iRobot 110 would have brought our childhood spy missions to another level.  I hoping this will be available to the civilan market for less than a couple thousand, and i’ll pick one up for sure.  Just give me the ability to control it from my Motorola Xoom Android tablet.

The only thing the iRobot 110 seems to be missing is a weapon of some type.  Because as is, if you toss that thing into a building with a bunch of bad guys, they are just going to pick it up and throw it back at you or else put a bullet through it.

Why was I was not aware this type of sport existed?

The above video was actually filmed in Florida, but the company GNAT Shoot is based in the UK.

A quick YouTube search for “RC plane shoot” yeilds a lot of other interesting videos:

Looks like great fun too, although I’d have to be very confident in the guys I was shooting with before Id attempt that. There seems like too high of a possibility of getting muzzle swept (or worse).
