Don't say we didn't call it. The old-school radio control handset is dead
Back in March we showed a Mini Cooper radio control car being directed via smartphone
. Since then we've seen smartphone apps used to control all manner of other objects, and the culmination of these advancements is in one of the coolest toys yet, an iPhone-controlled Ferrari Enzo
Using Bluetooth connection, you can control various aspects of the Enzo, from the regular forward, backward, left and right to head, tail and turning lights.
The Ferrari Enzo Toy Car is made by Silverlit and costs around $80. If you don't have an iPhone, don't fear - the Enzo can also be controlled by apps for several other smartphones. Expect it to appear for this year's holiday season.
Maybe we should get in there early and predict the first real
Ferrari controlled by smartphone...
