Ultimate Lightning McQueen

Robotic toymaker Sphero have unveiled their latest app-controlled toy - the Ultimate Lightning McQueen, a remarkably lifelike remote control version of the main character from Cars. This cool toy features some impressive robotics and is packed with personality, animated eyes, an animatronic mouth, and emotive suspension that gives McQueen a sense of life, similarly to how it moves in the movie. An ambient light sensor turns the headlights on and off, and the toy has three processors to run everything. All is controlled using a free app for iOS or Android. watch the video below
