You can rely on WowWee to storm CES with a battalion of new robots – tonight, several were on show at the show press preview. Pick of the bunch was Rovio, which the company describes as a ‘Wi-Fi enabled robotic webcam’.
It basically trundles around your house, and can be controlled remotely, but also has something called NorthStar smart navigation built in, which lets it navigate around under its own steam using a micro-GPS-like system.
You can stream audio and video from Rovio wherever you are to spy on your home, and he can be controlled via devices like mobile phones and games consoles, as well as PCs. Oh, and you can send him back to base for a recharge at any time.
