Desk Pets Vehicles

Desk Pet's mini vehicles aren't your typical remote-controlled cars. The Tankbot and Carbot can both zip about of their own accord, avoiding obstacles and navigating through mazes you vindictively toss in their way. Or, you can use the smartphone control mode to steer the robot with an Apple or Android device and a free app. The Trekbot is controlled via remote control, so you don't need a smartphone to steer it as it races at about 1 foot per second, performing stunts and terrorizing housecats on its uniquely shaped wheels.
