Silverlit revs up radio controlled toys for iPads & iPhones

Boot Camp feature for Monday, July 30, 2012

Silverlit Toys revs up radio controlled toys for iPads and iPhones.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     It’s become one of the hot accessory categories for IPads and iPhones, cars and helicopters that use the devices for remote control.   And they aren’t just for kids.   Silverlit is out with a new iOS Porsche that joins a Ferrari already on the market…and still to come is a Mercedes that will feature speakers that can play music from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch too.   Marketing VP Rick Ruskin…

“As rarely happens, Apple knocked on our door.  When we looked at it, we thought about all the new possibilities.  Our vehicles now use the built in accelerometers that are in the I devices so that instead of having to use joysticks, you can tilt your iPhone or iPad forward to drive forward, backward to break, left, right.”

And the appeal is wide.  Silverlit has some products for Android devices too.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
