If you are like most people, you are often looking for something different to have some fun. The Carbot, pictured here, is so small that you can uses it on your desktop as a diversion for the pressures of day to day work. When you need to clear you mind, this is great way to go about it. And if your friends have a Carbot as well, you can have races or battles to have some great fun. And since the Carbot comes in various colors, you can clearly identify your competitors in your battles.
All of this is controlled from your iOS device or Android smart phone through the installed app along with the remote control attachment which plugs into your headphone jack. You will need to check to see if your Android phone can support operating the Carbot. The battery in the Carbot should give you about 25 minutes of racing time and takes about 45 minutes to charge up the battery from any USB port. The Carbot runs under different modes; standard driving mode, multi-player mode and Autonomous Personality Mode.
The standard mode lets you drive the car from your smart phone screen, including being able to honk the horn. The multi-player mode is for your races and battles. You can fire on your opponents with an infrared beam which when you hit them lowers their life meter. The Autonomous Personality Model allows your Carbot to randomly wander around avoiding obstacles in its path.
