Live video from WiFi-controlled toy car camera

 

Hey, now I can chase my cat from my recliner, and see ’im wherever he hides! The Scara Bee (named for scaring the cat?) lets you use your Smartphone’s orientation sensor to drive the car — and see where you/it are going through its onboard VGA camera that feeds back live video to the phone.

The control and video feed are over WiFi, ranging up to 99 feet. The $150 car from European wireless accessory manufacturer BeeWi “is a unique Wi-Fi controlled buggy a-la the “Mars Rover,” designed for indoor and outdoor use.” It measures 8 x 7.5 x 4.7 inches. The NiMH provides 20 minutes of run time.

Beware, kitties!
