Griffin has unveiled a bunch of different gadgets and offerings at CES 2012 so far this year. One of the cool gadgets that the company is showing off is the toy helicopter you see here called the Helo TC Assault. Griffin rolled out the Helo TV line last year and they are fun to play with, even if a bit hard to control.
The latest Assault version looks like an Apache helicopter and is controlled using your iPhone, iPod touch, or Android device and an app. The main difference in this version and the other Helo TC offerings is that the Assault has an orange projectile under each wing those fires.
The app allows you to control the firing of the missiles and to control the helicopter through its range of motion. The copter can be controlled in up, down, left, and right motions. Not all Android devices will control the helicopter apparently and you need the volume turned all the way up. The control box plugs into the headphone port. The copter will launch soon for about $60.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
