Embrace your inner spy, and wreak havoc on Jim from down the street with the Spy Hawk. What kid doesn’t want an RC glider with built-in 5-megapixel camera? Kids these days have access to some pretty phenomenal toys. The Spy Hawk has the ability to stream live video back to the device’s remote, which has a 3.5-inch LCD screen. In addition, there’s an SD card slot for recording all your Top Secret missions. If you’re shaky behind the wheel, the Spy Hawk has an “intelligent autopilot” that keeps the Spy Hawk level using its built-in gyroscope. Of course, possessing military-grade equipment comes at a cost: the Spy Hawk runs for around $400, so start saving up that lawn mower money now. [via Uncrate]
Powerbag Deluxe Charging Backpack
Backpacks are great because they hold pencils and notebooks and gadgets. But gadgets can, at the most inopportune time, run out of battery. Ugh. What are you going to do? If you had the Powerbag Deluxe Charging Backpack, charging your gear on the go wouldn’t be a problem. Equipped with a 6000mAh rechargeable battery, the Powerbag keeps traveling gears charged when outlets are nowhere to be found. And you don’t even need cables, as USB mini, micro and 30-pin dock connectors are threaded throughout the pockets — that ensures a wide breadth of compatibility for those with a varied gadget arsenal. Just remember to recharge the Powerbag’s battery when an outlet it finally near. [via ThinkGeek]
Nerf N-Strike Hail-Fire Blaster
TechnoBuffalo isn’t ashamed to admit we have a bit of a Nerf obsession. In fact, we probably have an arsenal that could outfit a small militia. It’s maybe a bit unhealthy, and it’s a pain to clean up when there are hundreds of darts littering the office floor, but it’s a good way to unwind after a long week. The N-Strike Hail-Fire is, like, one of the more exciting Nerf guns we’ve seen in a while. When news of its existence hit, it quickly spread through TechnoBuffalo’s communication channels — from Sean, to Todd, to me, to Roy, etc. — because, well, we’re huge nerds. But, come on! The Hail-Fire holds up to 144 rounds, has a rotating ammo rack, shoots up to 75 feet, and comes equipped with a motor for semi-automatic firing. [via Gizmodo]
