I know that it is still July but this is the time when the gadgets manufacturers start coming up with the next big thing for Christmas and this year it seems that the iPhone remote controlled Helicopter could be one of those things topping the Christmas lists.
This is the Helo TC RC Helicopter from Griffin and it uses an app for the iPhone to remote control the devices flight using the built in gyroscope, so this means controlling the helicopter by tilting the iPhone. This helicopter itself is charged up through a USB port and a thirty minute charge will provide around eight minutes of flight.
It is assumed that this device will be ready in time for the Christmas rush and will cost £34.99 in the UK and $56 in the US.
