Xiaomi building block car highlights
This armored battlefield car uses 1040+ building blocks. At the same time, the whole vehicle is covered with composite armor. On the top, we can find a 360°rotating close-up gun. Whereas on the front, there is a guillotine-shaped bumper. On the opposite side, we can see a storage fuel tank. Externally, the product has a shape of a hard-core sci-fi machine. So we guess it should attract those who like building military cars.
Also, the Xiaomi Hound Chariot car uses a wireless dual-axis motor with a speed of 220 rpm. Apart from this, our protagonist supports Bluetooth 5.0 Mesh protocol wireless remote control, game engine development, low latency and high response speed, real-time display of vehicle driving data, and a vibration feedback function to enjoy the driving experience. Thus, it will be ready to drive once you finish building the car.
As for the entire Xiaomi Jupiter Dawn series, products in this category have a sci-fi appearance. When building toys, you will see that they resemble the actual look of the original cars. Moreover, it can produce special effects with corresponding headsets and VR technology support.
