Looking at the 'Tankbot' by Desk Pets really brings back memories of my remote-controlled cars.

The 'Tankbot' is a miniature vehicle integrated by Apple's accelerometer technology. In other words, you can control this fun toy with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch by tilting it in different directions. The 'Tankbot' by Desk Pets also navigates mazes, avoids obstacles and reacts to hand motions via built-in IR sensors. It may not bring you world domination, but the 'Tankbot definitely looks too fun to pass up.
