BigTrak Whirrs Back From The Grave
By James Grahame
BigTrak is back. After inspiring a generation of impressionable kids to create a series of unmanned exploration vehicles for use on Mars, the BigTrak family has returned to its simple roots.
Junior is the first in a new generation of programmable six-wheeled vehicles. For those who skipped the 80s, the little tank has a built-in memory that allows you to program a series of up to 32 moves moves -- forward, left, bleep loudly, more forward, even more forward, followed by crashing loudly down the stairs.
BigTrak Jr will retail for around $40 when it's introduced early this summer. A rocket launcher and digital camera attachment will follow later.
