RC car puts you in the driving seat

That's how you spell RC

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

If you haven’t passed your driving test yet or live in London then driving a car is probably a pretty alien experience to you. Now a radio-controlled car puts you in the driving seat - virtually - thanks to its integrated video camera.

Watch the RC car's movements from street level

The Vision Tracking System (VTS) Camera Car has a video camera built into the fake driver’s head, from which real-time driver’s eye footage is beamed back to a pair of wireless video goggles worn by you – the real king of the road. This means you’ll see every twist and turn of the RC car from, well, floor level.

A small motor within the plastic driver’s head also allows the camera to move left and right as you move your head. So should a floor-level broad honk as you go screaming past, you’ll be able to look sideways and catch a glimpse.

As a nice bonus, a microphone embedded into the car even picks up floor-level sound and beams it back to you.

The VTS Camera Car is available now online for £600 (€755/$1200).
