The BBZ201 Mini Cooper S Bluetooth car can be controlled via mobile’s orientation sensor or touch-screen button interface. It has a super fast motor with full directional steering capability and can be purchase on Amazon for approximately $45.00.
The App currently does not have Bluetooth discovery, you will need to add the car’s MAC address to the source code once you have pair your device. You can add Bluetooth discovery feature yourself if you are interested.
