If you have both a laser pointer and either a cat or a dog in your home, you probably know how much fun it can be to watch your critter chasing after the laser light point on the floor. If you don't have any pets, however, now there's something else that will chase a laser for you - a toy car. Thinkway Toys' Lazer Stunt Chaser is a remote-control vehicle that goes wherever its user shines its laser light controller. Oh yeah, and its wheels light up, too.

Another one of the car's features is the fact that it's two-sided, so if it flips over, it'll just keep going. Users control its speed (which includes a turbo mode) via infrared, using a trigger on the controller. While moving the laser beam allows for wider turns, sharp turns can be made using left- and right-turn buttons. The system can also be set to either of two "channels" (not too sure how that applies to lasers), so two players can race their cars against one another.

The car can be controlled up to a maximum distance of 40 feet (12 meters).

The basic set includes one Lazer Stunt Chaser car with a built-in rechargeable battery, wireless remote control, stunt ramp, battery charger and instruction guide. It's available at various retailers, for US$39.99. The charger and controller require a total of eight AA batteries, combined.

Optional extra kits allow the cars to perform loop-the-loops, zoom around inside a clear funnel, and jump through a ring.

That\'s amazing....


The way that beam spreads, I highly doubt it\'s actually a laser. I would think with a real laser the range would be better. Also it appears that the point also has a throttle control, which I assume is encoded into the beam.


Yeah...but what will the car do if it \"catches\" the laser point?
