[CES 2010] Interactive Toy Concepts’ Skeet Shooter & VRC Flying RC Toys

By Andrew Liszewski

Interactive Toy Concepts is back at CES this year, and if you remember from our last year’s coverage they were responsible for the Duck Hunter game which you probably saw in every store this past Christmas. Well this year they’re introducing a different take on the ‘hunting toy’ game with their Skeet Shooter toy. Instead of trying to bring down a flying duck, the Skeet Shooter launches 3 plastic discs in the air which you try and hit with your infra-red mini-rifle. Unfortunately the prototype had just arrived at the show and wasn’t in working condition so we couldn’t see it in action, but I’m sure it will be just as popular for Christmas 2010 as Duck Hunter was for 2009.

The company was also showing off their VRC or ‘Virtual Reality Control’ flying RC toys which are controlled via a Wiimote-like gyroscope-equipped remote. So instead of piloting your plane, or in this case your RC helicopter, around a hotel ballroom with a set of sticks which aren’t that intuitive, you simply tilt and pivot the remote like you would a yoke in an actual flying craft. As you can see in the photo the VRC toys were in better working condition than the Skeet Shooter, but both should be available sometime this year.

    I like the hunting toys more. They seem pretty neat and get you away from a tv, you could really get into it, physically. It's that or the picture of the guy really concentrating that turns me away.
