The London Science Museum has taken a new approach to the good ‘ol art of metal detecting by adding the technology to a radio controlled car.
This colourful little piece of technology has chunky off-road tyres and a metal detector underneath so you can seek your fortune in rough terrain.
- Find lost or hidden metal objects
- Beeps and lights up when you find metallic objects
- Learn about metal detecting as you play
The Metal Detector R/C Car measures 230(L) x 270(W) x 110(H) mm and is available for £39.99 (about $83 USD) over at the Drinkstuff website.
Include a way to retrieve said medal objects and I’m sold!
Maybe a laser or two for good measure. 😀
That would be a cool addition Zak. 🙂
This seems like a fun toy or a great gag gift, door prize etc.., for someone that metal detects for a hobby.
That’s a really smart invention – take a hobby that’s biggest problem is that its most time consuming aspect is quite boring – and make it fun! Interesting post, thankyou.
