Blue Drone is a Bluetooth controlled R/C car that can be controlled by any Android device running Android 2.0 and higher. It's currently in its initial phase at Kickstarter, where the developer is looking for initial interest in order to justify the production costs. If you're not familiar with Kickstarter, you can opt-in and support a new project, and if the funding goals are met you'll be charged and receive what you've paid for. If the goal isn't met, you aren't charged and the project is left to seek funding elsewhere, or just fizzle away.
This one is way too cool to let that happen. For a buy-in of $59, you'll get a scale model R/C car, and the app to control it from your Android phone or tablet via a Bluetooth connection. The car is controlled via the touchscreen or uses the accelerometer for steering. You'll get three hours use from a trio of AAA batteries, and the whole set-up has a 30 foot range. Check the video above, this looks like loads of fun. Hit the source link for more information.
