Draganflyer V Ti Pro Helicopter

Draganflyer V Ti Pro Helicopter

We've had our share of remote controlled flying machines, and they all met their doom in a rather swift manner. For our next in-air toy, we're considering the Draganflyer V Ti Pro Helicopter ($1500). This tiny terror utilizes electronic sensors and thermal imaging to land safely if it gets outs of range or if there is a problem — but that's not the big deal. The big deal is that the V Ti Pro features a CCD sensor with 460 lines of resolution — when shooting video — and maneuverability that is unmatched in a personal flyer, making it the ultimate gadget for when you need arial footage of your kid's ballgame, or when you need to, you know, spy on an ex.

  • Segatoys HomeStar Planetarium

    If you happen to be trapped in a city with bright lights all around and a little added “atmosphere” — or smog, as some like to call it — you should love this little guy. Instead of destroying small planets like the mini Death Star that it looks like, the HomeStar Planetarium ($240) recreates the constellations indoors for you viewing pleasure. It features a high-brightness white LED, a slot for different plates showing different groups of stars, six hour battery life, and an adjustable stand.

  • Pleo

    Say hello to Pleo ($300). The robotic dinosaur, created by Furby inventor Caleb Chung, walks around on four legs, senses its surroundings, interacts with people, shows emotion, and learns from its experiences. Pleo has a whopping 8 processors, 14 motors and 38 sensors. Ugobe, Chung's company, describes the tiny dino the best: "Pleo is equipped with senses for sight, sound, and touch. He learns as he explores his environment. He will exhibit genuine reactions to sensory stimuli. Every Pleo begins life with certain tendencies but, interaction with his environment has subtle effects on his behavior. Every Pleo eventually exhibits a unique personality. Pleo is capable of expression. He can feel joy and sorrow, anger and annoyance."
