Remote-controlled spy car sees in the dark

There are times when I wish I had a time machine so I could turn back the clock and become a kid again. Certainly, today's kids get much cooler toys to play with, and they don't get much more impressive than Wild Planet's Spy Video Car. But radio-controlled cars are nothing new, you say? What about one with a built-in video camera that can transmit its signal up to 75 feet to a kid-size LCD headset monitor? And if that's not cool enough for you, the camera is also infrared sensitive and lets you see in the dark thanks to an infrared light mounted on the car — just the thing for sneaking in on your sister's slumber party undetected. This is the kind of gadget that would have blown people away if it showed up in a James Bond movie a few years back. Now this fall your kid can have one for somewhere between $99 and $159.
