Metal-detecting Dune Buggy: Fun and Profit!

Image credit: 

What could be better than finding hidden treasure without having to lift more than a finger? Now looking for loot is easier than ever with the Remote-controlled Metal-detecting Dune Buggy! The idea seems a little weird, but everyone I've mentioned it to wants to try it out.

Oh, this might be the worst thing ever for parents who want their kids to go outside and actually get some exercise. But kids will like it -it's like playing video games with the possibility of a real-world payoff. It's good for kids to have dreams, and digging down four inches is still exercise, isn't it?

The dune buggy requires one 9-volt and four AA batteries. $49.95 from Hammacher-Schlemmer.
