Voice-controlled toy helicopters


Taiyo Corp toy helicopter

You have have seen those commericals for the remote controlled mini helicopters that dart around and fly with incredible precision. Today, I’m here to tell you that they are a toy of the past. Tokyo’s Taiyo Corp has trumped all of the previous offerings by creating a voice controlled toy helicopter.Â

The “smart helicopter” can fly as far as 10 meters away from the controller so you can hide behind corners while whispering your commands for destruction on innocent passers-by. The helicopter also responds to command in both English and Japanese. It will set you back about $60, and should be here in the states later on this year.

  1. I love this idea. As a pilot the main problem with the existing helicopters it the mayor issue of control. Even when adding a stabilizer bar to the remote control unit the helicopter is still difficult to fly.

    This is a remarkable idea to use voice control, it’s got to take a fast processor to cope with the exchange between the voice, remote and helicopter.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on one. Maybe I will be able to control this a little better.

    Superb Idea.
