Patent Pending 5-function USB remote allows for full control while performing sharp turns, headstands, and flips at lightning fast speed

Toronto, Canada – (October 7, 2010) – Desk Pets International (HK) Limited, creator of interactive micro-robotic toys and gadgets with big-play value, is pleased to announce TREKBOT, a unique hubless micro-robotic racer. Desk Pets signature patent pending 5-function USB remote control allows racers to perform sharp turns, headstands, and full flips while moving at blazing speeds. With a built-in USB charger TREKBOT provides hours of inexpensive playtime, eliminating the need for expensive batteries. Available now for $19.99 at Toys “R” Us and RadioShack stores nationwide, TREKBOT provides a superior RC gaming experience with an easy-to-use and low-cost charging solution.

Whether you’re racing, battling, or just exploring, TREKBOTS’ four color, four frequency system allows for multiple users to race at the same time. The angled wheel design makes it easy for racers to perform flips and spins at the touch of a button. When it’s time to recharge, simply plug the retractable USB remote into your PC, laptop or Mac. Thirty minutes of charge provides a full fifteen minutes of intense playtime.

Following the success of the SKITTERBOT, Desk Pets International Managing Directors, Michael Trzecieski and David Piltz, have stepped it up with their first wheeled micro-robot. “These guys are fast! TREKBOT’s angled, hubless wheeled design allows users to perform exciting tricks while moving at full speed,” says Trzecieski. Piltz points out that keeping to Desk Pets’ big-play value formula is what makes this another hit for the toy industry. “We wanted to make sure we kept with the same eco and wallet friendly charging solution. Now more than ever, people are looking for inexpensive, high-valued solutions for this season’s holiday gifts. The days of spending hundreds of dollars on toys and hundreds more on batteries are over.”

TREKBOTS come in black, gold, white, and a clear shell which allows a closer look into the inner workings of the micro-robotic racers. To check out the TREKBOT video click HERE.
