Remote Control X-UFO

Remote Control X-UFO

We found out a couple days ago that other Geeks are as interested in indoor remote control flying contraptions as we are when FARK picked up our Gizmo of the Day article on the Remote Control Indoor Butterfly Flyer. While searching our favorite sites, we ran across another such gizmo, except this involves yet even another geek passion… UFOs!

This 2005 Toy Innovation Winner in the Technology Category finally makes use of the technology uncovered years ago at Roswell!

Ever since Alexander the Great in 329 BC saw ‘two silver shields’ in the sky, the human race has been fascinated with the idea of alien spaceships. The metallic saucer is perhaps the most enduring form these craft are supposed to assume. But it’s clearly not the only. We would like to introduce you to a design we happened upon while learning about alien architecture during a conversation we had with GORT. Twiki was there too.

Basically this X-UFO (from SilverLit) is a lightweight but extremely durable craft (built of carbon fiber and EPP foam) with four independently controlled motors that allow you to fly and hover in all three dimensions*. The four blinking LEDs assist you with orienting your X-UFO. They will also indicate when your electronic gyro is at the optimum speed for maneuvering and, once you get the hang of it, they will also allow you to fly completely in the dark so you can startle friends, loved ones and pets. Incorporating the latest in miniature technology, amazing precision, and advanced materials, your X-UFO is going to consistently remind you that dreams are worth believing in again.
