Toy reviews

The Chinese are whacking out a lot of flying toys for XMas. They're trying so many ideas, it's hard to imagine any idea not already being attempted. The mane features are gesture control, caged copters, folding copters, tilt rotors, IR obstacle detection, IR altitude detection, recording video, replaying flights, shooting things, blowing bubbles.

The guy recommends everything he reviews, but obviously not all the features really work & most of the stuff he reviews obviously either never makes it to mass production or never sells significantly. It shows just how hard it is for an idea to succeed.

He did reveal Sphero executing a hand drawn route with a certain amount of accuracy. Getting a smooth arc like that from a hand drawing is immensely hard with a wheeled vehicle, but Sphero was able to do it.

Then, there was this. So far, staying upright on it is taking a huge amount of exertion. The skateboard operation is busted. It would take buying a commercial board & many hours of practice to get proficient. It's not the intuitive solution envisioned.

Astrology predicts Saturn's direction reversing on July 8 at the same time the moon is new is going to result in a massive financial victory & falling out of love with everyone from the last 30 years.
