WowWee Rovio Robot with GPS & Wi-Fi

WowWee introduced Rovio, a new robot with GPS technology from Evolution Robotics. Rovio has a Wi-Fi-enabled Web-cam that allows you to patrol your home while you’re away, via an Internet-enabled PC, console or mobile phone. You can drive the robot with shortcut “go-to” commands. For instance, “go to the dining room”. It also has what they call a “patrol mode” where it automatically sends you pictures of locations you want to check.

It also can also guide itself back on course if, say your kids pick it up and move it and it can navigate to its charging station from anywhere in the home, and dock with pinpoint accuracy.
