Looking for an advanced toy for your kids? Think about the Spy Video TRAKR from Wild Planet. The Spy Video TRAKR is a remote-controlled vehicle that digitally transmits color video, audio and data and allows users to create, download and share custom programs. Once kids create new programs, they have the option of posting them on a designated web site for other kids to access, at no charge, from all over the world. The options for custom programs are as vast and varied as the imaginations of children.
The Spy Video TRAKR will have the ability to perform its main function immediately upon purchase, right out of the box. It will come with three apps already installed, and a collection of free apps will be available online when the product launches, giving users instant access to a wide variety of programs.
Though the Spy Video TRAKR can be used without ever being hooked up to a computer, tech-minded kids will be quick to connect their toy and start the customization process. Beginners can access an online application modulator that will allow them to modify existing apps as they familiarize themselves with writing code. All the tools they need to write their own unique programs will be available online, for free.
The Spy Video TRAKR’s 2.4GHz digital RF transmission, internal processor, full-color LCD, SD Card slot (for recording capabilities), integrated speaker and microphone, and development kit provide kids with the materials to make the toy of their dreams. The Spy Video TRAKR will also come pre-loaded with a night vision app. Kids can drive their Spy Video TRAKR in total darkness, yet see everything in the vehicle’s path on the color screen on their remote.
Designed for kids ages 8 and up, the Spy Video TRAKR will hit the stores in October 2010 with a retail price of $120.
