Using your iPhone to control the AppToyz Off Road Buggy

Tilt and use the app
to control the buggy!

When the polo neck-clad geeks at Apple created their almighty iPhone/iPod, they could not have imagined it would one day be used to control an off-road buggy. But thanks to the truly awesome AppToyz Off Road Buggy, that’s exactly what’s happened.

By combining the incredible power of the iPhone/iPod with an ingenious app and a sleek little unit that plugs into its headphone socket, your beloved gizmo will now control this incredibly nippy digital proportional infra-red buggy. Clever? It’s one of the most intuitive I/R transmitters ever.

Unit that plugs into the headphone socket

Plugs into the headphone socket

Forget about twin toggles and the usual methods of remote control. Once you’ve set up the idiot-proof AppToyz app and plugged in the peripheral unit you can use an on-screen virtual D-pad to control the funky buggy’s movements. And if you want to be extra flash you can even tilt your iPhone, steering wheel styley – see, we knew that built-in accelerometer would come in handy one day.

AppToyz Off Road Buggy

The buggy!

In keeping with Apple’s über sexy image, the AppToyz peripheral device is charged via USB so no batteries are required. Pull your piggy-backed iPhone from your pocket and start driving this cool little off-roader round the office and colleagues won’t know whether to marvel at your supreme geekdom or click on to Firebox and order one for themselves. We’re guessing they’ll do both, so hurry up and hit the Buy button before this i-controlled vehicle buggies off forever.

Customer Reviews

Can u use the iPad to control the buggy.
Nick, - 20th February 2013
Firebox says: Hi Nick, I am afraid not. The buggy is only compatible with iPhone 3GS, 4 and iTouch 4.
Hi has the app 4 this come out yet?? Can I use my iPhone 4s for this or not?
Zo, Uk - 26th December 2011
Firebox says: Hi Zo, the app has come out for this, and you can use it with your iPhone 4S.
Please can you tell me when the app will be available for download? Hopefully next week as I don't think it's right that you are selling a product before we can use it!
Josh, Northampton - 29th September 2011
Firebox says: Hi Josh, we're actually only taking pre-orders for the Off Road Buggy at the moment as it's still not available (hence neither is the App). But as soon as stock is ready to go we'll let you know!
