Rovio: WiFi enabled surveillance robot by WoWee

[CES 2008] Wowee is unveiling its new WiFi enabled robotic webcam that can be controlled remotely using any Internet enabled device: mobile phone, PC or video game console. Users can explore their home or office remotely through the Rovio’s built-in camera that streams video and audio transmitted via the robot. Featuring the NorthStar® smart navigation and positioning system, the Rovio navigates accurately by itself and is able to avoid the obstacles on its way. Hopefully, we will see a live demo on the show floor at CES.
