RC Cars have come a long way over the past few years. And with smartphones also advancing as much as they have technologically, it was only a matter of time before we’d be able to control mini cars with our smartphones. Enter the ZenWheels MicroCar for iPhone and Android, a small car controlled by a smartphone app.

This little bugger connects to your iOS or Android devices via Bluetooth, and it’s then controlled with a free app by Zenwheels. The microcars stand at under 1″ tall, but they have working headlights, turn signals, horn and a siren. You’ll be surprised at the level of control you’ll have over the car, which surprises its owner by being able to turn on a dime. It works a lot like the Anki OVERDRIVE system, except you’re not limited to a certain track and there are no games to play. It’s just you and the open road coffee table, and you’ll be amused while you’re not paying attention to whatever is on the television anyway.
