VGA to HDTV Scaler
Prime8 R/C Robot
This is exactly what it looks like: a four-bladed R/C helicopter with two cameras. You control it with your iPhone, iPad or iPod, which display what the camera sees in first-person view, meaning you can fly it out the window of your house, look around on the roof, and bring it back -- as if you were living inside the space shuttle and you had a repair robot to check the gutters. Yes, the A.R. Drone Parrot turns any well-adjusted adult brain into that of a 10 year old. Did we mention that if you have two of these things and a friend, you can dogfight with lasers? Pew! pew! Price: $300 from Amazon.
