The cold hard truth...

I keep asking myself the same question: So what?
I'll wait for Hotwheels and every other toyco to deliver a swift, HARD uppercut to their egos in the toy aisle at HALF the price. And probably no expensive mat. And that's the bottom line. Better make them hackable. Otherwise....who cares?!

Anki Drive

I am a bit of a simpleton, so please excuse my ignorance...
How is this 'Anki Drive' any different to an ordinary little R/C car, that just happens to be controlled by an 'iphone'???
What does it do?

One of the first lines in the article explains it.

"The cars know their location and they are able to react to their surroundings in real time".

In other words, they're Hot Wheels track cars that have a limited awareness of the environments they're racing in. It's pretty neat stuff.
