In crafting tools for creating applications for iOS devices, developers have gifted users with several unique features to brighten regular life with excitement. One such novelty gadget is the iRemoco developed by Andrew Ayres and Tom Sisterson. It is a toy control technology for iOS devices, certified for iPhone and iPod touch iOS devices. The iRemoco is an infra-red controlled, three channel, battery powered helicopter with gyro stabilization which operates with motion sensor or joystick movements on the Apple devices.
The device comes with a dock connector to transmit the signal and control the toy through an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch. To fly the helicopter, the free iRemoco App, which is available from iTunes, has to be downloaded on the Apple device. Its touch screen or motion sensor helps the user to control the toy and fly out in air.
The iRemoco package includes, along with the red chic helicopter and the dock connecter, a color manual teaching all the tricks of the trade, a USM cable to charge the controller and a spare rotor blade for the helicopter in case of an accident. The body of the toy is made of metal frames whereas the rotor blades are prepared from flexible, durable plastic.
The app is designed to promote weekend/vacation activities like helicopter racing with friends and family as a single Apple device can operate more than one helicopters at one time. Moreover the controller runs on its own built-in rechargeable battery which powers the data transmission to the helicopter and does not affect the battery life of the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. However, the prototype is still in its developing stages and the developers are in need of funds to initiate the preliminary level of production.
