Remote Control Steering Available On MINI
Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey -
MINI is well known for packaging high-technology into a small space and
its latest innovation, MINI Remote Steering (tm), takes ease of ownership
to new levels. With MINI Remote Steering (tm), MINI has produced the
world's first commercially-available full-sized remote control car. Based
on the proven 'Tamiyah-hah' model racing technology, the new system allows
MINI owners to remotely operate their cars up to a distance of 150 feet.
Now, avoiding the rain is simple. Thanks to Remote Steering, MINI comes
right to your door.
This system provides a number
of benefits. For example, it allows owners to arrive at their favorite
restaurant, be seated at their table and then remotely park their car in
the street outside. Furthermore, an apartment dweller in Manhattan can
remotely bring their car up from the basement garage and position it on
the street, ready to go.
Opposition to the new system
has been voiced however. Valet Parker's union president 'Scratch' N'Dentem
said; 'Hey, we loved driving this thing and now it looks like we're out of
a job...whaddya gonna do? ' he opined. MINI Remote Steeringtm, is now also
likely to give street racing a whole new perspective as tuners abandon
their hot rods in favor of playing with their hand-held.
MINI spokesperson, Donna
Fallforit said 'Clearly this once again highlights MINI as a high
technology product. We have thoroughly trialed this new system and apart
from the occasional interference with light aircraft and TV remotes, we
are happy with it. Pricing is not set, but we think it'll be a winner,
especially on a day like today."
