The Amazing App controlled Spy Tank

It’s wrong to say that we are gadget lovers, we are actually gadget fanatics. And all gadget fanatics love the concept of a Wireless Spy TANK….. That’s right a tank.

Introducing the Rover 2.0. At first glance this seems right out of a James Bond movie. This 10 inch tank on wheels is controlled by your compatible Android or iPhone or Ipad device (you need to download a free app from the App store). You navigate with on-screen controls or “steer” using your control device’s accelerometer which is a lot of fun.

The Rover generates it’s on Wi-Fi signal and does not need your home network. The stated wireless range is up to 200 ft. unobstructed, and 100 ft. around walls and into other rooms, meaning you can drive this thing far away from you by looking at the images on your tablet or phone. How cool is that?

As if that is not enough, you can see in the dark using the Rovers night vision, stream and record videos and photographs and post to Facebook, YouTube or twitter right from the device. The fun doesn’t end there, there are headlights and two-way audio meaning you can drive this thing to the kitchen and ask “mommy” for snacks.

The potential is limitless here and it is just so much fun. This will make a very cool holiday or vacation gadget for everyone to try out. Please sound off in the comments section about your cool Rover stories. We have this at http://www.gizmotakeout.com for a special introductory price of 29.99 $ for a week.
