Back for 2010, Bigtrak! You might remember having one of these in the early 80's. Retro and cool, it's brand new for 2010.
This programmable educational toy is a six-wheeled tank with a front mounted blue photon beam headlamp used for firing. The centre wheels are driven by two motors to allow change of direction.
Use the 23-button keypad to enter instructions for Bigtrak. Where do I want Bigtrak to go? In what direction? How many units will it take to reach my goal? When do I want Bigtrak to fire? Do I want Bigtrak to return to me along a different course? With a 16 command memory, Bigtrak will execute 16 commands in one sequence, e.g. 'go forward 5 lengths', 'pause', 'turn 30 degrees right', 'fire phaser' and so on.
There is a 'repeat' instruction allowing simple loops.
Requires 3 x D batteries (not included)
Bigtrak is Back! Relive your childhood with this 21st Century officially licensed replica! For those of you that are either to young to know or to old to remember, Bigtrak was a programmable 6 wheeled tank with a front mounted blue photon beam headlamp and a 23 button keypad on the top. The toy can remember up to 16 commands. Simply enter them via the keypad and then watch it execute the instructed sequence (such as "go forward 5 lengths", "pause", "turn 30 degrees right", "fire phaser" etc). The revived model is an authentic reproduction that boasts all the features of the original, including the ubiquitous '80s go-faster stripes, blue headlamp, phaser sounds and repeat function allowing simple loops! And the best bit?...we've actually lowered the price from when it was originally launched in the 80's, so you can now pick up Bigtrak for just £30
