Apps: they're not just for your iPhone anymore. Wild Planet is about to debut their first ever app-enabled toy at the Toy Fair in New York. The product is still eight months away from public release. The Spy Video TRAKR is a remote-controlled video-enabled vehicle that is fully programmable.

Wild Planet's goal with the TRAKR is to give children their first taste of programming. Kids can program any sort of app they want, and then share it on the toy's website. They'll also be able to download apps created by other children. There is no cost to download new apps or to use the website services.

There will be an online application modulator in order to help beginners understand the basics of writing code. The TRAKR will come pre-loaded with three apps, including one that enables night vision. The Spy Video TRAKR has a 2.4 GHz digital RF transmission, full-color LCD screen, SD slot, a speaker, and a microphone. It will launch in October and MSRP for $120.
