Desk Pets International: TankBot

Published on .

TankBot is a new micro robotic toy, devised by DeskPets International, which can be remotely controlled by the iPhone, iPad or iPod. The tiny robot will respond to the user's hand movements as they tilt their Apple device, to change direction, even navigating mazes and obstacles. Owners can pick from four different colors – orange, blue, black and green – allowing for multi-player racing. Set to be launched at the New York Toy Fair next month, TankBot will be sold from June for a price of less than $20.
