Rovio Wi-Fi Home Security Robot

Ever wanted to be in two places at once? Now you can.

WowWee Rovio Wi-Fi Enabled WebCam Robot is a groundbreaking new Wi-Fi enabled mobile webcam that lets you view and interact with its environment through streaming video and audio, wherever you are! It is a new challenger of the remote control Spykee bot that you have seen on my blog earlier.

The Rovio has an impressive list of features that makes it useful as a home security robot, telepresence device or a just for fun toy gadget:
  • Easily remote control from any web-enabled device: PC or Mac, cell phone, smartphone, PDA or even your video game console.

  • Head-mounted moveable camera and wide range of vision

  • Indoor GPS

  • MPEG4 video

  • Self-docking capabilities for auto recharge

  • Built-in LED headlight

  • Wi-Fi connectivity (802.11b and 802.11g)
The Internet of Things is happening as innovations like remote control wifi robots are becoming connected devices. Roveo is a pioneer and it could probably be improved but it shows the possibilities and is fun to play with.
