Infrared Tracker Remote Control Car is guided by light

Who needs fancy remote controls for a remote control car? I mean, all those joysticks and buttons and stuff can get confusing. So, to take the guesswork out of the play process, the Infrared Tracker Remote Control Car was developed.

Instead of fiddling with controls, all you have to do is point the controller where you would like the toy car to go and it will go there. Sounds simple enough. The controller is, in essence, a laser pointer and the car will follow the point of light by using an infrared tracking system.

Motorola Z9 on AT&T SlashGear Review

It would be easy to dismiss Motorola's Z9 on first sight, as just another RAZR-inspired basic cellphone.  The Z9 has the usual zero-profile keypad (here with individual silver rivets to guide your finger) and Motorola's still less-than-intuitive Synergy OS - no full QWERTY, no super-high-resolution camera.  Yet under the skin there's plenty to like about the Z9; check out why we have a soft-spot for the Motorola slider in the full SlashGear review.
