MINI R/C car at the 2012 London Olympics

We love the Olympics at our house, and every few years we look forward to watching the world's best athletes compete on the global stage. This year, I noticed a remote-controlled MINI Cooper driving around the infield of the track and field stadium. I just thought it must've been an ad, a sponsorship thing; I don't know. It turns out this electric 1:4 scale MINI is actually a retrieval tool for thing such as the discus, javelin, etc. How cool is that? I'm not sure who the manufacturer is of these electric R/C cars, but they are pretty darn cool. 

Here's MINI's promo video for the mini MINI.
