If I ever get a crib large enough to be worth ‘pimping,’ the first thing I’m going to do is fill the basement with a massive model train set. Because a) nothing says ‘pimped out’ like toy trains, and b) I’d get to carry around this slick wireless controller from Dynamis. The E-Z Command remote uses infrared technology to control up to 40 different locomotives at one time, allowing you to wander around and enjoy your HO-scale countryside while you’re shunting miniature boxcars.
A large backlit LCD display provides constant feedback for your currently selected train, and there’s even a miniature joystick for adjusting the speed or controlling other functions on your locomotives like lights and sounds. The controller runs off 4 x AA batteries, though I don’t know how long they’ll last, and it will set you back $315 from Bachmann Trains.
