RC plane + VR goggles = awesome geek toy.

The camera sends back video wirelessly to the goggles. The camera is mounted on a two-axis of rotation actuator, and the goggles have a gyro-sensor. So when he looks around, so does the camera on the plane! It's about as close to real flying as you can get without forking over the ~$10,000 worth of training for a private pilot's license. The video has actual flight footage showing off the system.
