Imagine attaching a wireless video camera onto a remote controlled vehicle. Now imagine the fun of driving that camera car throughout your house or office. Of course such a toy is bound to give you loads of fun or possibly give you loads of trouble depending on how you used it. Now what if you could look around using the camera on the car? Even better right? Stick with me here.

The VTS (Vision Tracking System) RC Camera Car is a 1:10 scale RC vehicle with a mounted camera. While this RC car would be fun enough with just a camera, what makes this RC car very cool is the set of VGA LCD goggles that come with it. Not only can you watch the small scale road ahead in first person by wearing the goggles, but by moving your head, the camera responds in-kind via gyro technology. When you look left or right the camera looks left or right. When you look up or down, the camera responds the same way.

Unfortunately this kind of RC fun isn’t cheap as the VTS RC Camera Car costs £599.95 or approximately US$1172. But after watching the video of the VTS in action I certainly added it to my Christmas list for this year. You can find the VTS RC Camera Car on sale at gadget website RED5.

You will notice the cars will not go as fast as normal RC cars. Not because it can't but from that perspective, we'll go dizzy haahaa..

Really nice idea. All they need now is to wire up a steering wheel and pedals and can race like F1 leow. One can even start one of these in an arcade with an area where the cars can run around. I'd pay for that experience man.. sweet.

Thanks for sharing.
