Giveaway: iPhone Controlled Helicopter

iPhone Controlled Helicopter

It is amazing to realize that there are so many different things you can do with your mobile devices.  You can not only play games on the two-dimensional screen, you can actually use your mobile devices play games outside of the device screen.  One thing I discovered is the Toy Helicopter Remotely Controlled by an iPhone.  As you guessed you have to download an app to make it work.  With the app, you can use your iPhone to control the helicopter going up and down, moving to different directions, and making spiral rotations.

What will the kids learn:

Kids will practice their hand-eye coordination.   To send the right control signals to keep the helicopter in the air and move in the right direction, kids have to learn to translate helicopter’s speed and direction into the strength and direction of the control signals they have to send out.  They have to learn to make situational judgment and translate the judgment into action instantly.

While playing, kids will also have opportunities to observe the air dynamics that make a helicopter fly.  You can discuss some basic air dynamics when you play as a family.  Here are two articles on the web explaining how helicopter fly:  for younger kids and for adults or older kids.

For so long, I assumed app on a mobile device is just for things you do while you are sitting on a chair or a couch staring at the screen.  I am happy to see some games using the iPhone to remove kids from the screen and help them learn something.

You can find the Helicopter on Amazon by clicking HERE.

You can download the app i.Copter Syma from App Store HERE. It is FREE.

    I’m sorry I am late for this one…I have been pining for this helicopter since I first spied its existence.

    Fingers crossed here to – my son would be over the moon – looks like so much fun. Never saw or heard of this toy before.

    What a fantastic toy! My son has been harrassing me for a remote-control helicopter for ages – I will have to see if I can get one of these in the UK. Shame I can’t enter, but how exciting for one lucky mum and kid who will win it!

      I saw some similar models on Amazon. I am very tempted to order one for my son!

    Does it work with the iPad or other phones?
