Demolition Derby

In about two days, on Feb. 28th an hour before sunset to be exact, NYCResistor is hosting a “Cyber Surfers Demolition Competition“.

This is a Cyber Surfer:

Four things you need to know:

  1. It’s radio controlled.
  2. It flies.
  3. It seems easily hackable.
  4. NYCResistor has 20+ of them.

The entrant that destroys the most space surfboards wins. Simple. If you are in the area, I would highly suggest checking it out once they release the location.

These radical astronautical surfers are self balancing due to a solid state accelerometer. So unlike your tiny helicopters, they shouldn’t go flying into your cat’s face. They are on sale at ThinkGeek right now and I am honestly considering picking one up for funsies.
