This DeLorean Actually Floats

1_20-Magnetic-Floating-DeLorean-Time-Machine-by-Kids-Logic-Featured-image-672x372

Back To The Future day is now forever behind us, but the movie’s spirit and magic lives on. So we wouldn’t be surprised to see this 1/20 scale floating DeLorean sell out rather quickly. It’s an officially licensed collectible that uses an array of magnets to float above its base.

– Officially Licensed by Universal Studios
– Delorean Time Machine Back to the Future Part II.
– Scale: 1/20
– Length: about 22cm
– Levitating Time Machine with Magnetic Floating Base
– Openable doors and movable wheels
– Changeable wheels (two sets) for normal scene and flying scene.
– Flame effect parts included
– 2 Bases: Magnetic Floating Base and Display Base
– More than 10 LED light-up features
– Magnetic Floating Base comes with light up function

Of course, whenever you see the word ‘collectible’, you know you have to prepare for a hefty price tag. This toy is no exception, since you’ll have to pony up $195 as a pre-order to get yours. And then wait until Q2 2016 to actually get it.

A Road Legal Little Tikes Cosy Coupe For Not-so-Little Kids

Little-Tikes-based-Road-Legal-Car-by-Attitude-Autos-Featured-image-672x372

Back in 2013, U.K. Attitude Autos took a Daewoo Matiz and spent 16 weeks customizing it to make it look exactly like a Little Tikes Cosy Coupe. What you see above is the result of that effort, and now, after spending a couple of years appearing at charity events and raising money, the car is up for sale on eBay. It’s fully road legal, and can reach speeds of 70 miles an hour (112.6 km/h). “The eBay page has it listed at £21,500 (about $33,200 USD), down from what Attitude Autos says was the car’s initial appraisal of $46,000 USD.” Keep in mind it’s a stick shift, but that’s at least a couple notches better than having to push it with your feet.

Best Paper Plane Ever: PowerUp FPV Transforms Your Useless Toy Into A Live-Streaming Drone

Powerup by Kfir Ziv_018 (1000px)

Throwing a paper plane around is great when you’re about 6 years old, but it gets stale quickly as an adult. Unless of course you outfit it with the PowerUp FPV kit. It’s a super lightweight camera-and-propeller rig that keeps your plane up in the air for up to 10 minutes per charge, going at speeds up to 20mph, with a range of up to 300ft. That in itself is great, but what’s truly amazing is that the PowerUp FPV kit also has a 360 degree camera that can transmit an image back to the operator in real-time! Amazingly, it can be controlled with Head Mounted Display gestures, an in-app gamepad, or better yet, Google Cardboard. Yes, not only do you get to see what’s straight ahead, but you can look around as you fly! Features also include an Auto-Pilot mode for easy flying, using a 3-axis compass sensor, 3-axis gyroscope sensor, 3-axis accelerometer and a Barometer.

The product is a collaboration with Parrot, who already has tons of experience with their own drones, so there’s a good chance this will be a quality product. It’ll be priced around $200 with early bird discounts when the project launches on Kickstarter in three weeks.

Turn Any Branch Into A Sword

sword-creator-1

Kids will go into the woods and pretend to be swordsmen. This is the way kids work. We think. But if they’re going to be doing that, there’s a chance one of them will get their knuckles hit and come back home in tears. That won’t happen if you get them the Nature Sabre-sword Creator from MonkeyBuisness. It’s a simple silicone attachment that fits at the end of a branch and creates a finger guard that not only makes the “sword” look more legit, it also gives your child some semblance of protection. They’re $11, comes in three colors, and is available now.

Everbright Is Like A Giant Lite-Brite For Adults

vlcsnap-2015-07-28-17h08m14s361

Remember the Lite-Brite? Yeah, we had fun with that as kids, but now that we’re adults, we’re delighted to realize we could still let our creative juices flow with an updated, “grown-up” version of the product. It’s called Everbright, and it’s a giant 4′ X 8′ wall-mounted board with 462 full-spectrum LEDs. You can set the color of each dial by turning it, and can reset the whole board at the touch of a button. The board is also capable of animations.

It’s a great product to get for an office, for instance, where you can foster team-building and a calmer, more relaxed work atmosphere. You can, of course, get it for the home too, but at $25,000 for the mid-line model, you’re going to want to think twice about just how badly you want to relive your childhood at home.

Horsey Rides Just Got More Fun

horsey-stuffed-horse-toy

Kids, they’ll believe just about anything you tell them. It’s cute, but what if you could make your stories even more believable? The Hoppe Hoppe Reiter 2.0 is a stuffed horse head with straps; tie it to your knee and turn your leg into a somewhat more realistic looking horse for your kid. Then those horsey rides on your knee will be even cooler, and you’ll spend even more time getting annoyed that you introduced this toy to you child since he won’t stop asking you for more. It’s fun and all, but I’m not sure I’d be wanting to pay €34.95 (or roughly $38USD) for a stuffed toy. Then again, I’m not a fan of children in general, so perhaps a more fatherly type might be more inclined.
