Pre-order now to be one of the first to get your hands on the Rovio and avoid missing out! As soon as we get them in stock it will be despatched to you. Expected: August 2008

You would be forgiven in thinking this amazing wi-fi robot has just come back from a mission to mars! It's made by the same people who brought us the Robosapien range and one of their developers was actually involved with the NASA space programme. Rovio is a WiFi enabled robotic webcam that easily moves in any direction and can be controlled remotely.

You can View and interact with Rovio's environment through its streaming video and audio via its built-in camera. Use Rovio to check in on your family while away from home, watch over your house while away on vacation, or look over your pets during your lunchtime (just what is your dog getting up to while you are away?!) In the office, enjoy movement enabled web-conferences with colleagues, using Rovio anywhere.

Direct Rovio's movements, neck-mounted camera, and audio from your own living room -- or anywhere in the world -- via the Internet, using any web accessible device such as a mobile phone, video game console or PC. What Rovio see's and hears so do you.

The clever bit is the fact that you can store 'way points' which Rovio will automatically navigate to with the click of a button. It does this by NorthStar navigation software. Working like a micro-GPS system, Rovio knows where it is, locates the positions of other objects, and accurately navigates through its environment under its own control.

To make sure Rovio never runs out of battery there is a self dock option which will send Rovio back to its charging dock at the touch of a button.

Not only is this a cool novelty gadget it is also a cost effective addition to your home security.
