Rover 2.0 App-Controlled Spy Tank from Brookstone announced
I know that many of us are looking forward to 007’s latest adventure later at the end of this year, where it is known as Skyfall. Assuming you love all things that have to do with the world of espionage and mystery, then you would be pleased to hear that Brookstone has announced their latest addition to their collection of gizmos, the Rover 2.0 App-Controlled Spy Tank. From the name itself, you can tell that this will be a successor to its previous iteration, so let us take a closer look and see just what it is capable of offering right after the jump, shall we not?
The new, second-generation form of the award-winning app-controlled spy tank will require you to perform a download of the app from the AppStore or Google Play for free, and any secret agent wanna-be is able to pivot, spin and drive the Rover 2.0 App-Controlled Spy Tank as long as it remains within a 200 feet (unobstructed, of course, needless to say the range drops when there are plenty of physical obstacles around) radius with their iPod touch, iPad, iPhone or Android smartphone and tablet.
The Rover 2.0 is fully capable of generating its very own Wi-Fi connection so that drivers are able to stream audio as well as accompanying visuals from the Rover’s path. So the enemy thinks like Batman by using theatricality and deception as powerful weapons against the uninitiated, but the Rover 2.0 is fully initiated and works great in the dark even though it has nothing to do with the League of Shadows. This is made possible thanks to BaneVision – I made that up actually, it really falls back on its infrared night vision which is fully capable of transmitting video in low lighting conditions.
The Rover 2.0 will arrive just in time for the holiday season. In fact, October might be considered to be too early a date for some, don’t you think so? The asking price for the Rover 2.0 App-Controlled Spy Tank would be $149.99.
