There’s a good reason Ken Block’s gymkhana videos have racked up millions of YouTube views: they show off an extreme level of driving skill that most of us can only dream about. Drifting RC cars is a slightly more achievable and affordable goal, but it still must take untold hours of practice to reach the skill level of the drivers controlling these tiny drifters.
Few of us have the financial resources to build a Batmobile that does everything the ones in the movies can do. Or even a full-scale replica that just drives, for that matter. But if you can scrape together a thousand bucks, you can easily get your hands on this 1:12-scale remote control Tumbler toy that includes a tiny built-in camera that makes you feel like you’re sitting in the cockpit.
Briefly: You might not think you need a remote control tissue box designed to look like a Japanese subway train. But think back to the last time you were sick, and just getting out of bed felt more challenging than running a marathon. Now you see why $US34 for an RC train that can deliver tissues right to where you’ve crashed is definitely money well spent. [Japan Trend Shop]
Using a remote control mower to cut your lawn? That’s working smarter, not harder. Using a remote control boat to troll your favourite fishing spot?

Video: Drifting R/C cars isn’t a completely new pasttime, but there’s still something magical about watching a trio of R/C cars go flying off a jump — sideways. It’s everything you ever wasted your childhood trying to achieve, but done by grown-ups with far more skill.
As Marvel’s most wantonly destructive character, there’s only one feature kids are really looking for when they ask their parents for a Hulk toy. It has to smash stuff, and it has to smash stuff repeatedly until they get tired of smashing stuff. It’s a simple list of demands, and JAKKS Pacific has met every one of them with its new, and aptly-named, RC Hulk Smash.
