App-controlled wireless spy tank

 

Are you trying to catch a family member or pet in the act to doing something nefarious? Do you need a cool, high-tech, smartphone-controlled toy? If so, a wireless spy tank seems like the perfect solution to both of those questions. Not only could it be useful, but you be sure to have a little fun in the process.

Naturally, we were a bit skeptical, so what better way to find out if it’s any good than to buy the Brookstone Rover 2.0 WiFi Spy Tank ($119.99) for ourselves and test it out! Best of all, you’ll be able to win it by reading this review all the way until the end and joining the giveaway.

The Rover 2.0 is a wireless spy tank (and remote-controlled toy) which comes with a visible-light camera as well as an infrared camera. It is controlled by a smart device app for iOS and Android via ad-hoc WiFi — the toy creates its own WiFi network rather than using your home’s network, and this means it’ll work anywhere, not just within the confines of your house. Besides being cool and relatively high-tech, it also boasts a handful of other features, which I’ll cover in detail below.

App-controlled wireless spy tank

Generating its own Wi-Fi wireless connection for your smart device, Rover 2.0 can travel up to 200 ft. unobstructed–or up to 100 ft. around walls and into other rooms. Navigation is easy. Sight through Rover’s on-board video camera, using the on-screen driving controls. Or navigate by G-Drive Mode, using your device’s accelerometer like a steering wheel for more realistic adventures.

An adjustable wide-angle camera lets you see what Rover 2.0 sees. You can even turn off the headlights remotely and see in the dark, using the camera’s undetectable infrared night vision. Even better? You can record and share your missions online, uploading video and stills directly from the App to your favorite Website or social media page.

Halt, who goes there? A built-in microphone and speaker let you hear everything Rover 2.0 hears…and transmit your own reply, whether it’s a secret password or an addition to the family grocery list. With Rover 2.0, you have eyes and ears everywhere!

Of course, the Spy Tank just carries out missions on the land. It is able to generate its own WiFi wireless connection for your smart device, so the impressive wireless range lets it travel up to 30 ft, unobstructed up to 60 ft.

Using the on-screen driving arrows, you can conveniently drive the vehicle. Operated by your iPod touch, iPhone device, iPad tablet, it can go forward/backward and  turn left/right.
