CES 2008: WowWee Shows Off Helicopter-like Rotating Blade

Since last year’s Flytech Dragongly, WowWee has expanded the Flytech line and this year announced the Bladestar, which is a take on a helicopter. It has a rotating blade and opposing helicopter rear rotors. The robot take is that it has 3 obstacle sensors – one on the bottom, one on the top and one on the side. The cool thing is that these sensors help it avoid walls and ceilings and fly by itself. You can also control it using the remote control. But here’s the cool part – you can use your hands as moving obstacles to redirect the Bladestar. Just picture holding your hands up like a magician to control some object without touching it.
