Meet Rovio – The Wireless Robot

Have you ever wondered what goes on at home when you’re not around?? Rovio (as the title suggests) is a wireless robot. This means that however you get online, Rovio will be your new friend. So whether you use your iphone, games console or PC, you can literally be anywhere in the world and Rovio can stay at home. But that’s not all…

This unique little robot comes with a whole host of additional features. Firstly it comes with full audio and visual streaming capabilities, so, you guessed it, even when you’re away from home you’ll be able to annoy your pet dog or cat for pure amusement. You can check you haven’t left the oven on, and what’s more, because Rovio comes with a microphone and video camera, you can also video chat with mates, family or even colleagues at work.

Rovio’s casing houses a rechargeable battery that can charged via it’s own charging station and because it knows where it is, it can can recharge itself all on its own. No doubt there are a a multitude of uses for this cool little robot.
