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.

You have to be within about 5 feet of the car, however, in order for this tracking system to work, which is significantly less than most standard remote control cars. However, if you like the idea of something new, give it a try. But it will cost you all of $50.
