TankBot claims to be the planet's first micro-robotic toy for Apple fiends. It has 3 modes to navigate, roam about and clear obstacles. A dongle hooks into your iPhone/iPad/touch and you control it by tilting. A built-in charger can give 15 minutes of power after a half hour. Desk Pet's toy features accelerometer technology, IR sensors and free roaming mode (with tank sounds) and comes at a price of $20.00. Available in orange, blue, black and green, look for its debut at the NY Toy Fair this month.
