Silverlit iBird Is a Remote-Controlled Flying Bird

iBird: Love It or Leave It?

Oooh! A remote control flying toy that's not a helicopter or an army plane! The Silverlit iBird has me kind of transfixed — they have the kind of organic meets tech beauty that I appreciated last month in those rad PaperBirds. It's supposed to fly and flap around like a real bird (see the video in the link), but in action, it reminds me of a hummingbird, which while beautiful, have always incited weird beak-in-ear fears for me. It's about $50 and comes in three color choices. What do you think? Beautiful, freaky. . . Both?

It's pretty & I would like to play with it but I know I'd just get bored with it after a while & curse myself for wasting money on it, hahaha.

I think it's perfect for my daughter. Her bestfriend across the street is a boy and he has the planes and all that so this would be great for her to play with since she's all girly and everything. Better than a crappy plane!

Not something I would have.

i think that it looks nice but it's really not something that i would personally get. it's nicer than the usual remote controled flying things though.

Oh my God! I would LOVE to have one of these! I was always hoping for something like this when I was younger. I mean, screw those flying toy planes and whatever. I always wanted something that can fly and is -pretty- ^^

I think it's okay, but it would be prettier with different colors.

I wish it was prettier. But I would still love to play with it. It is SUPER loud though, here's a REAL video.

Yeah, why is everything nowadays an "iSomething"? It drives me nuts. Love the bird, though. :)
