G-Bound Amphibian R/C Car
G-Bound is the name of this new amphibious remote-controlled car by the Japanese company CCP, a sub-brand to the large toy manufacturer Bandai.
The G-Bound was recently revealed during the popular annual Tokyo Toy Show. Thanks to its waterproof body and and the four huge inflatable tires, the car can be driven upside down and on almost any kind of surface – even on the water.
Here’s a video clip on the G-Bound in action:
The car is powered by a rechargble battery pack and the 27MHz remote control lets you move the tires forward and backward individually, making it possible to spin around on one spot. You can also go forward, and then hit back, to flip the car around.
The exact release date for the G-Bound R/C Car has not yet been conformed, but sales will start in autumn 2009 and the car will cost 12,800 YEN (about $140 USD).
