Set the Delorean to 1979. If you were alive and old enough to comprehend your surroundings you might remember that the movie Alien was just released with the notable Empire Strikes Back on the horizon. Our minds were already blown by the talking Speak-and-Spell and then along came BigTrak. This programmable tank was like no toy before it. You would enter in a sequence of commands for movement and firing, then hit the "GO" button and watch as the autonomous tank dutifully carried out your commands. If you were one of the really cool kids you had the wagon which allowed BigTrak to carry and dump a payload on command. BigTrak provided hours of fun in a long ago age when any kind of programmable toy was a real novelty.
