Rover App-Controlled Spy Tank

Rover App-Controlled Spy Tank

There’s no denying the fact that robots are awesome. It doesn’t matter if they’re sent from the future to protect us, or if they quietly hide under the couch until summoned to suck up crumbs off the floor, they’re crazy cool. They also happen to be ridiculously expensive… or so we thought. Now you can have a robot equipped with audio/visual capabilities (including infrared night vision) that’s controllable with an iPod, iPhone or iPad for under $200. You get up to 200ft of wireless range unobstructed, or 100ft with walls, so it’s not exactly up to the task of warzone duty. If, however, you want to check things out in the office or the living room, this rover has you covered.
