Remote Control Tech Toys Are Smart Fun for Air, Land and Sea

Having trouble finding a great gift for the gadget lover on your list? He or she probably has a smartphone and tablet already, so try a smart wireless accessory from the Verizon Wireless Have Fun zone to deliver fun from the air, land or sea.

The Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Elite helicopter features four rotors; a high-definition (1280 x 720) camera to capture live aerial photos and videos; advanced aviation and control capabilities to perform stunts such as front, back and side flips; a long-life lithium battery;  stealthy and stylish snow-camouflage markings; and much more.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy playing with the Orbotix Sphero 2 Gaming System. With more than 25 apps and two ramps, the sphero travels at 6 feet per second and can be controlled wirelessly up to 50 feet away.

Your smartphone, teamed with the proper apps, can steer a variety of RC boats, too, but you should first start with a high-tech simulation program before putting a boat on the actual high seas. Absolute RC Boat Sim by Happy Bytes delivers an amazingly realistic experience, without any water, and it will work with Moga controllers for even more precise navigation and racing.

So if the race to find that special high-tech holiday gift gets hectic, a smart RC accessory can deliver under pressure.

The Verizon Wireless “’Tis the Season for Tech Gifts” series provides holiday gift suggestions for everyone on your list this year.
