App-enabled kiddie funster takes go-karting into the future.
The Arrow Smart-Kart is sized for five-to-nine-year-old kids, but that won't stop me from trying to drive it.
Top speed is a bonkers 12 mph. Where were these when I was a kid?
A sensor in the nose provides collision avoidance by automatically stopping Arrow if an obstacle is detected.
Pedals are adjustable to accommodate kids' ages as they hit those growth spurts.
A companion app allows parents to limit speed, geofence specific areas, and stop the kart on a dime. The Arrow app is available for iOS and Android devices.
GPS and WiFi antennae sit atop the Arrow.
Kids can customize their Arrow with synthesized engine sounds from an online sound library.
Custom body kits and drifting wheel rings are available, with a Formula-One-inspired steering wheel, distance-sensing 'smart cones', laser tag sensors and gaming apps coming soon.
