I’m a sucker for toys, especially remote control ones and the TankBot fits into both of those categories. It actually fits into another one of my favorite categories, and that’s mobility. The TankBot is can be controlled by either your Android or iOS device via an app. It has two other modes in addition to phone control and those are maze solving and free roaming. The TankBot comes in different colors and it’s charged by USB which gives you 15 minutes of play time on a 40 minute charge. The cost is $24.99 and they’re available today at Radio Shack and Toys R’ Us.
TankBot features include:
• Fully controllable by iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android mobile device application Autonomous mode uses IR sensors to navigate mazes, avoid obstacles, and react with military precision
• Free roaming mode with various sounds
• Retractable USB charger built into body of the product, 40 minutes of charge = 15 minutes of play
