Where was this stuff when I was a kid? My first remote controlled car had a wire connecting the “remote” to the car. My second remote controlled car only had controls for forward and reverse. Ahh… the good times.

Well, the AmphibiCAR, on sale at Sharper Image, does just what the name suggests. It swims. The 27Mhz remote control has a 100ft range and the car will stay alive for 45 minutes in water and 25 minutes on land. It takes 5 hours to recharge though, so you better have something else to do.

You don’t need to do anything to switch from land to water: just toss it in.

Thanks Erick!


  1. It was about time they had come up with something of this nature, I mean if they can design real amphibious vehicles this is way to easy, but couldn’t they have found some way to limit the batteries needed, I mean come on, we are living in a computer age.
