Bring your iOS playtime off your device and into the real world with these Moto TC RC Cars ($30-$60). Available in large Monster truck or smaller Racer varieties, each is controlled via app, letting you use virtual controls — or accelerometer movements — to guide the vehicle. While the Monster connects via Bluetooth, the Racer comes with a RF transmitter — but either way, they're both compatible with most newer iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads.
Anyone who's ever "enjoyed" listening to an entire night's worth of radio buzz from a traditional baby monitor can appreciate the Belkin WeMo Baby ($90). This new system connects to your home network via Wi-Fi, letting you check in on the little one using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. While the free app offers clear digital sound and easy-to-see graphics, you can upgrade to Evoz service for an extra fee and access advanced monitoring, cry notifications, history, and analysis of your baby's sleep patterns.
We've played some pretty good pinball games on the iPad — but somehow, we still missed the visceral experience of button-mashing that comes from playing a real game. The Duo Pinball iPad Controller ($60) bridges this gap by holding your iPad at a reclined angle and adding a spring-loaded plunger, two side buttons, and realistic bump and tilt mechanics to your iPad via Bluetooth, getting you far closer to the feel of a real machine. It's also compatible with the iPhone and certain versions of the iPod touch, but somehow we guess a smaller screen just won't do it justice.
