The modern-day equivalent of running around the room with a model plane making engine and firing sounds in WowWee's Foam Fighters. The three-inch foam airplanes attach to any camera-equipped iDevice on a suction-cup-equipped arm. Players download a free app, which captures a QR code on the plane's wing to launch into a mission (WWII flights over Europe, the Pacific, and Britain). The app then superimposes a live image of your fighter on top of the battle scene.
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
