World's 'Smallest' RadioControlled Helicopter

Tablet computers for children and a miniature chopper made of used smartphone parts are among the items at a Tokyo toy show.

A tiny toy helicopter made from cannibalised smartphones has been among the main attractions at a huge toy show in Tokyo.

The motor that makes a telephone vibrate provides the power for the rotor blades on the Nano-Falcon, which its makers say is the world's smallest radio-controlled helicopter.

The 6.5cm-long (2.4in) machine weighs just 11 grammes (0.385 ounces), has a range of five metres (15 feet) and can fly for five minutes.

Its makers say they are feeding the fantasies of adults who never really grew up.

If they could keep it in the air a little longer it will make a perfect drone. Won't see it coming.

They are already using parts from smartphones? lets hope the helicopter lasts longer than the phone did.

Come on boys, stick a tiny camera on the front of one of them and imaging the fun you can have....hey! I think I might patent that myself.

I would imagine the "nanoization" trend of technology could eventually allow us better opportunity to explore the universe. Far easier to accelerate a marble sized spacecraft.

Next comes the hi-res camera. Perhaps we should all learn to shoot skeet.

I've owned a few little RC copters. Good fun for a few minutes then you never use them again. Pretty cool using smartphone parts though.

If it keeps them from licking eyeballs, great!
