TankBot, a Robot Toy for Your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
      #39733 - 01/19/11 05:08 PM

Desk Pets today unveiled a $20 TankBot that can be controlled by your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. TankBot's three modes allow it to navigate mazes, roam, and be fully controllable by your Apple device. Here is more info:



Each TankBot features a dongle that easily plugs into the headphone jack of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Utilizing Apple?s accelerometer technology, Desk Pets developed a program that enables TankBot to be controlled by simply tilting your mobile device. Tilt the iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch forward and TankBot rolls forward, angle the phone right and TankBot instantly makes a right turn. TankBot even has a mind of its own. Switch to autonomous mode and using built-in IR sensors, TankBot can navigate a maze, avoid obstacles and interact with the users hand motions, all on its own.

TankBot features include:

? Incorporates Apple?s accelerometer technology to be fully controllable by tilt of iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch
? Autonomous mode uses IR sensors to navigate mazes, avoid obstacles, and react with military precision
? Free roaming mode with tank sounds
? Retractable USB charger built into body of the product, 30 minutes of charge = 15 minutes of play
? Flashing heartbeat eyes pulse when robot is at idle
? Each color (orange, blue, black, and green) operates on own frequency, allowing for multi-player racing and battling

TankBot will be available starting June 2011 for under $20 at select retailers nationwide. For more info visit www.mydeskpets.com
