Want to give your Tyco car some extra oomph and control? Matthew Katzenstein took an electrical car and added a range of control based on robotics.

By adding an Arduino to the car, Matthew was able to bring more control to the car and increase its speed. Though his initial car is run from a laptop, there are Bluetooth options that offer control of the car from a smartphone. The car is also ruggedized, so it can take drops and crashes and still perform well.
