AMONG the vibrating head massagers, battery-operated shoe polishers and no less than four different types of farting electronic toys that populate the Gadget Central catalog comes the most fun object Open Source has played with all year. It's the $49.95 radio-controlled flying saucer that lifts off under rechargeable battery power and can be hovered via a radio control hand throttle.

With couple of glowing, spinning LEDs making the little sucker look like something out of Close Encounters of Third Kind, the saucer is just the ticket for freaking out the neighbours by flying it around the backyard at night.
