So you stash all your pens and pencils in the Uncapped Pen & Pencil Holder, replaced your old ruler with the Bottle Opening Ruler, and keep your table dust free with the help of the Dust Extinguisher Mini Desktop Vacuum. All in all, I’d say you’ve made your office desk a pretty cool one to work in. Now all it needs is some electronic entertainment in the form of the App Control Desk Pets.
It’s rare to find an office that allows you to bring your pets in for work. But what’s an employee to do during his or her spare time during lunch or during those five minutes before clocking out at work? The App Control Desk Pets help get rid of your boredom while being sort of functional at the same time. The first mode has the desk pet flashing lights randomly, the second lets you turn your smartphone on with a remote, while the third makes it go rolling all over your desk.
App Control Desk Pets
Choose between Tankbot (sturdy), Trekbot (speedy), or Skitterbot (slightly scary). Each has three different operating modes: the first sends your Desk Pet beeping and flashing away in a world of its own, oblivious to its surroundings; the second mode lets you turn your own smartphone into a remote control; and the third lets your Desk Pet discover the world all on its own!
Advanced optical navigation technology allows Desk Pets to feel their way around obstacles and work out where to move next. All you need to do is download the Desk Pet App (for free) and then plug the supplied dongle into your smartphone’s headphone socket.
The App Control Desk Pets are available from Firebox, with the Tankbots priced at £24.99 ($39) and the Skitterbots and Trekbots at £27.99 ($44.)
