Remote control cars have been a popular toy since I was a lad so how do you make them relevant to the children (and childish adults) in the modern world? If your guess involved smartphones, then you’re on the right track.

Scara Bee from BeeWi is an all terrain buggy that is controlled via your smartphone. Already pretty cool, the Scara Bee takes this one step further by throwing in an in-built camera (sadly only VGA), which relays the footage back to your phone. It’s a shame this couldn’t be a slightly better camera as it would be great to have the images and short videos that you can save be of slightly higher quality.

Still for £90 from Maplin it certainly looks like a great deal of fun.
