The Amazing App controlled Spy Tank
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.

The Microsoft Surface: The tablet evolved

The Surface Tablet
The Microsoft Surface Tablet

Microsoft is trying to do something that has not been done ever by a company, i.e. it is trying to combine both the tablet and PC operating systems into one package giving you a seamless experience whether you are using a tablet or a PC. This seems to make sense but has never been the norm. Case in point, the Apple Ipad uses a IPhone style interface while the Mac line uses an altogether different OS.

In addition they are getting into the hardware game (again… they did release the Xbox) with the gorgeously styled Microsoft Surface tablet. The pictures are stunning with it being released in several colors. The hardware specs are below

Features

  1. An angled,  Vapor Magnesium sturdy case that weighs just under 1.3 pounds,
  2. NVIDIA-made ARM chip
  3. A very creative sturdy built-in stand
  4. Twin 2×2 MIMO antennas for WiFi, and a 10.6-inch optically-bonded, Gorilla Glass 2-covered HD display.
  5. A magnetically attached cover, which doubles as a full multi-touch keyboard and trackpad.
  6. Ports include one each of HDMI, microSD and USB 2.0 as well as 32GB of storage.

As with the strategy adopted by Apple and Google with the Nexus line, the Microsoft Surface promises to be the perfect harmony of Windows 8 with gorgeous hardware. We wholeheartedly recommend it both as a stylish device and as a halo Windows 8 device. Other OEMs watch out, you just got surfaced.

As gadget lovers we will have this device at launch for 49.99$ for our users at http://www.gizmotakeout.com, under the upcoming devices section. We invite you all to try it out with us inexpensively and tip toe into the amazing waters of Windows 8.
