Radio-controlled Traxxas XO-1 automodel: 100 km/h in 2,3 seconds and iPhone as the race
Say that men do not mature, the price of their toys changes only, meaning the real car, instead of toy, good hours, phone, etc. The veracious statement, but happens that toys will be transformed directly, without changing the essence. For example, there are such pieces, as radio-controlled automodels. Actually very close copies of unique cars, but on the scale of 1/18, 1/10, 1/8, 1/5, plus are also less widespread options. Such toys can include an internal combustion engine (fuel on the basis of methanol) or the electromotor is used and are capable to be dispersed till huge speeds, as for radio-controlled моделек. There are even international competitions to a role such here "machines". One of better known developers of similar "toys" decided to adapt iPhone/iPod touch for work with it, and in the XO-1 model this task is solved.
The machine left notable. It is completed with the electric motor, all running gear and critical details to loading are executed from metal, as well as the car case (aluminum). To 100 km/h it is dispersed in 2,3 seconds, and the highest speed in 160 km/h develops in 4,92 seconds.
The complete radio controler is more interesting. It is capable to cooperate with iPhone or iPod touch, on which the dashboard is deduced own sort (speed, number of rpm at the motor, temperature, a voltage), plus in it remains information on race and car indicators in process.
Not including that, by means of iГаджета sensitivity of the controler is adjusted and at desire it is possible to keep some schemes of management then to choose them as pressing of pair of buttons.
It should be noted that Traxxas XO-1 is far not the champion, plus enthusiasts usually before competitions тюнингуют own iron favourites and use from time to time the acquired model in its primordial form. So, in 2009 Nick Keyes (Nic Case) dispersed the automodel to 260 km/h. After all, among serial samples the novelty is one of the best.
By the way, this pleasure not from the cheap. Cost of Traxxas XO-1 makes $1100, and to get it it will be possible, since December 30 of this year (a gift under a fir-tree to not maturing man). On December 20 in App Store there will be a Traxxas Link appendix for use together with iГаджета toy. [The Verge]
