You read that right. We are far ahead of the times when remote control cars can only be manoeuvred with a handheld controller. Today, you can even control one just by wielding your hand with a contraption device.

Besides realising the player’s dream of channelling their inner Tony Stark, this hand gesture RC car can perform all kinds of cool and flexible manoeuvres that will wow both players and spectators.

If you think a remote control car alone is enough to get the kids to squeal with delight, wait till you see their faces when the car transforms into a robot!

The young ones will have tons of fun shape-shifting the miniature sports car into its robot form (and vice versa) with just a click of a button. We suspect Transformersloving adults will love it too!

Remote control cars do not just come in flashy sports car design. They are also modelled after rugged monster trucks with their signature gigantic tyres.

The Rock Crawler RC off road truck may appeal to older individuals who prefer more challenging courses to cruise their toy vehicles in. They are built with more durable components and can rough it out on harsher surfaces, allowing for more fun outdoor playtime.

LEGO Technic Stunt Racer

An RC car no doubt provides lots of fun, but one that can be assembled from the ground up? Now that’s double the fun with immense satisfaction on top!

The popular LEGO Technic line of car models include one that can move while being controlled. The Stunt Racer can do more than just basic movements and turns, for it is also capable of pulling high-speed wheelies and spins! Despite being made with Lego bricks for the most part, the model is tough enough to traverse rough terrains.

Get this if your recipient loves tinkering with stuff in addition to toy vehicles!

LEGO Technic Top Gear Rally Car

Similar to the Stunt Racer, players can enjoy putting together the LEGO Technic Top Gear Rally Car from scratch. However, it also comes with a neat twist.

Instead of a dedicated remote control, players control the model with their smartphone via a mobile app. It allows for super-precise movement in addition to providing real-time feedback which includes speed and tilt log information. The app also features fun racing challenges to test one’s manoeuvring skills. That’s not all, as there are even authentic car sound effects to boot! See how it works in this video.

You get extra brownie points if your recipient is a fan of the popular automotive TV show, Top Gear. See how it works

When we say Xiaomi makes seemingly everything under the sun, this further proves our point.

Behold the Jimny, a Jeep-like RC vehicle made by the renowned smartphone company (which also makes wearables, laptops, smart home devices, kitchenware, and a whole lot of other things). Much like the LEGO Technic models, it comes in a build-it-yourself package that all is part of the fun.

Similar to actual four-wheel-drive vehicles, the app-controlled Jimny has the power to climb up boulders and plough through uneven surfaces!

Enjoyed playing Mario Kart on the Nintendo Switch? Why not bring it to life in your living room?

Yes, that is possible with Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. Perhaps the most modern iteration of RC cars for the current generation, it lets players race actual remote-controlled cars (modelled after the vehicles in the iconic game) through an augmented reality course set in your home.

A Nintendo Switch console is required as it acts as the default controller. If you’re looking to shop the handheld gaming console as well, Nintendo has just released its latest Switch OLED model. You can read all about it here.
