Enter stage left the WowWee Rovio Wi-Fi Robot Web Camera.

Coming complete with Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing you to drive the robot remotely from wherever you have access to an internet connection, the WowWee Rovio comes armed not only with a webcam built also comes with a speaker and a microphone allowing you to not only see but also interact with anyone who may be at home or warn a burglar that you’re calling the police prior to that swine deciding to run off with your Rovio and make good his escape.

Interestingly, as well as offering audio and video streams, the WowWee Rovio can also navigate around your home completely independently using programmable navigation points allowing you to simply select any pre-programmed point which the Rovio will duly relocate to should you not wish to navigate the route each time yourself.
