We have introduced several remote control toys. But apparently those toys are too big to fit for playing on your desk. If you need a desk-friendly RC car, the Desk Pet USB Tankbot may be more suitable for you.
Desk Pet USB Tankbot is a remote controlled mini tank robot. As we can see from the images, the tank robot features an interesting mini design, and comes with light-up eyes and robot sounds. Similar with Rover Spy Tank, Desk Pet USB tank robot doesn’t have a remote control, just using the accompanying DeskPet universal remote and your own iPhone, iPod touch or Android phone, you can easily control the mini robot. Moreover, the remote control toy comes with three modes, including touchless navigation, autonomous personality mode and smartphone control, and the built-in advanced optical navigation technology allows the tank bot to steer around obstacles. Apart from that, you can connect Tankbot with your computer for charging via integrated USB flip out connector, while the built-in rechargeable battery can provide you 15 minutes play time between charges.
The iOS and Android app-controlled Desk Pet USB Tankbot is priced at $24.99 USD. If you’re interested, jump to ThinkGeek for more details. Additionally, if you need some bigger options, you might like to check HELO TC remote controlled helicopter.
