Desk Pets to roll out iOS-controlled TankBot this June

There’s unfortunately no pictures or video of it in action just yet, but it looks like Desk Pets is getting set to join Parrot and its AR.Drone in the wild world of toys controlled by iOS devices. That comes in the form of the company’s forthcoming TankBot, which can not only be controlled by your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, but by gestures thanks to its built-in IR sensors — it’ll also operate autonomously in its maze navigation or free roaming modes, for good measure. Look for this one to be available in June for “under $20” in your choice of four different colors.
