Wonderfully illustrated paper models of classic warplanes that not only look cool, they actually glide. The bi-planes are great, but we’re suckers for the bent-winged Chance Vought F4U-4 Corsair. To be honest, after all the work it takes to build one, we’d be afraid to toss ours.
One of the most awesome looking RC cars we’ve ever laid eyes on, Tamiya’s replica of the classic Land Cruiser features a fully-articulated suspension, 4WD, and fat tires. It’s a complex kit, and you’ll need to BYO controller, radios, speed controller and battery pack.
PowerUp FPV turns paper airplanes into drones. It can stream footage from its 640×480 camera to a mobile device up to 300ft. away. It flies up to 20mph and lasts 10min on its hot swappable battery. Its app supports stereoscopic 3D and it comes with a cardboard headset.
It’s not the fridge you need, nor the one you deserve. Haier’s officially licensed life-size R2-D2 scale model zips around via remote control, has a hidden mini refrigerator with room for six cans, and emits Artoo’s lights and sounds.
This desktop aquarium is home to a microcosm of bioluminescent dinoflagellates. They produce a cool blue glow after exposed to a little sunlight, water, and a little shake. The creatures ship separately to ensure they arrive safely. Way cooler than Sea Monkeys!
