Product Description Product Features
Tanks! Just the mere mention of the word gets most men excited. Add ‘robot’ and ‘control via your mobile phone’ or ‘self-roaming’ into the mix and most of us get just plain giddy. Well if you are male and reading this then we hope you’re sitting down as the TankBots do it all!
So without further ado we present to you the latest robot craze – TankBots by Desk Pets! They’re small, futuristic tanks with an autonomy that makes them great little pets for your home or office (minus the cleaning out and feeding of non-robo pets)! We can only imagine how creepily cute an army of these little critters would be when set to free-roaming mode – there’s something eerily lifelike about the way they move and detect obstacles in their immediate environment!
Not only can they navigate mazes and avoid obstacles but you can control their movements with iPods, iPhones, iPads and even Android devices. All you need to do is download the free app, turn your Desk Pet and IR Dongle on and away you go!
TankBots are perfect for racing and battling too and each colour operates on its own frequency allowing tons of multi-player fun!
