Control Ollie via your smart phone or tablet. Download the app and then connect Ollie to your device by bluetooth - you are then ready to go.
Ollie can be controlled via a touchscreen or turn your device sideways to enter trick mode.
Ollie is fast to drive. It goes up to 14mph and it's also super fun to try tricks with. If it's too fast for you, it's possible to turn down the speed too. Ollie is tough, it's designed to withstand the speed and the tricks.
It has a 30mph range and there is about an hours play from one charge.
Rev comes with 2 cars. The Rev cars can drive, think, and fight all by themselves.
In single player mode, you pick the car you want to control with your smart device. The other will be an artificially intelligent drone. And it's time to battle.
It works by using Beacon Sense technology, a proprietary indoor GPS system that enables the cars to sense their surroundings and navigate accordingly.
It works on most indoor floor surfaces.
Miposaur looks like a really fun toy.
You can control it from your smartphone and tablet but that's not the only way. It can also be controlled with a trackball which comes with Miposaur but most amazingly it responds to hand gestures too.
There is lots of play value with Miposaur
The TrackBall is equiped with BeaconSense technology, which means MiPosaur can track and follow the ball around. You can use the trackball to do things like take MiPosaur for a walk, play dino in the middle, play fetch and feed MiPosaur.
Miposaur responds to the gestures you do with your hand such as clapping and swiping. Miposaur has three different moods and ten different commands. Depending on what it's in, Miposaur will react to gestures differently. Miposaur can either be excited, curious or annoyed.
Lots of fun! Who wouldn't want to have a go with Miposaur?
