Build cars, drive them in a virtual cityscape, be amazed by augmented reality!
Start by building the basic car. Basic, but loaded with intricate technology. Then download the free controller app for your smartphone or tablet. (Requires an Iphone 4s or newer, or an IPad 3 or newer.)
Set up a virtual cityscape using the various Augmented Reality (AR) Code Cards. Spread them out across your floor and then, looking through the camera lens of your device, you'll see that each card is a virtual building! How cool is that!
Manually drive through the city using the fully-directional RC controls on the App. Or, use the high-tech "draw-and-drive" mechanism to actually program a route that your car will follow.
But be careful! Run a stop sign or crash into a building and you just might hear police sirens!
Once you've gotten a taste of driverless technology and the virtual city, take this robot-building excitement even further with seven more compelling models.
Build an airboat, flying car, forklift, motorcycle, airplane, future car, or helicopter, each fully functioning and loaded with amazing technological feats.
With a step-by-step, full-color, 64-page manual that shows how to build, remotely control, and program all the models, the Smart Car Robotics science kit introduces the future of smart car technology to young scientists.
One day, it may all be possible.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 10 years of age.
