16 tankbotMyDeskPets has just announced that they will be selling a new iOS-controlled robot toy. Called the TankBot, this robot comes with a pair of tank treads that allow it to move over any sort of terrain. It contains infrared sensors that can detect its surroundings which will enable it to move through mazes and even detect hand movements. The robot can also be easily controlled with an iOS app (it works with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) – all you have to do is tilt your device to steer it. The toy will be sold at a very cool $20 and will come in blue, green, orange or black. The TankBot will make its official debut at the Toy Fair in New York City next month and will hit the stores in June.
