Enter to win a TankBot! - Macenstein

Enter to win a TankBot!

Thank you, we have out winner. This contest is closed

I’d like you to close your eyes for a moment, and imagine the coolest thing in the world. Got it? Ok, it’s a cute tank that you can control with your iPhone, right? (Oh, you can open your eyes now, by the way… although you probably can’t see this… crap I should have thought this out better).

Yes, thanks to our good friends over at DeskPets we are giving one lucky reader their very own TankBot. What’s a TankBot? Oh, it’s just too adorable for words. Check out the video below.

We’ve been having a ball here at the lab running these guys through our home made mazes, and if this holiday you are looking for the perfect gift for the nerd in your life (like us) this is it.

To Enter: Sure the TankBot is only a couple inches high and can’t crush much of anything beneath its cute little treads, but we can dream. So in order to enter, leave us a comment telling us what ONE THING you wish you could run over with a real tank. Contest ends Thursday, November 25th 2011 at Midnight EST and is open to ALL readers WORLDWIDE. Winner will be picked randomly. Good luck!

    If there is really only one thing I’m allowed to run over then I’d definitely
    take my neighbours his ear deafening lawn mower.
    That thing is probably louder than the tank I’d run it over with.

    If he’d just cut his lawn once a week/2 weeks I’d be fine with it,
    but he has the habit to do it twice a week during the most beautiful days in the summer.

    Let me save the next summer!

  2. Jes says:

    My Boss! But then again he’s over 300 lbs. I don’t think he would notice. He might try to eat it though!!!!!

  17. anthony says:

    I’ll be checking my mail…????

  31. MisterG says:

    I would run over our city centre. It is a real eyesore and this would give some impetus to regenerating it

    Either that or I would run over … to the shops for more booze 🙂

    My ex-wife.

  33. Greg says:

    Anyone talking on their cell while driving on the freeway and veering into my lane.

  34. Tiranogh says:

    The Entire facility that makes Ultraviolet Enabled Blue-Ray Discs For Warner Brothers Studios. They took a great idea from Apple (Portable Content of your purchased film that you can legally own) and added painful DRM-Enabled restrictions, streaming that only works in Wi-Fi, and won’t work under Itunes or anything else.

    Really, I hate it so much I’m willing to settle for a fleet of 1988 Yugos and a steep Down-hill approach just to wipe them off the earth before every other studio tries to do the same thing.
