WowWee Rovio Wi-Fi Enabled Robotic Mobile WebCam

With Rovio™, you will always be just a click away from the people and places that are important to you.

Rovio is the wireless Internet equipped mobile webcam that enables you to view and interact with its environment through streaming video and audio, wherever you are!

Easily control Rovio remotely 24/7 from anywhere in the world! Use any web-enabled device: PC or Mac, cell phone, smartphone, PDA or even your video game console.

The TrueTrack™ Navigation System allows you to use the Rovio interface to store waypoints - with one click Rovio will automatically navigate itself to the chosen point. Rovio's built-in LED headlight will help you guide it even in dimly lit locations, so you'll always know what is going on at home or at the office. No need to worry about Rovio running low on power while you're away - the self-docking function allows you to send Rovio back to the charging dock to recharge, with the click of a button on your browser. When it's done charging, Rovio is ready to take its next tour.


Rovio detects your computer settings and guides you through the setup process.
Control Rovio remotely via a web browser from anywhere with an Internet connection.
Its head-mounted, moveable camera and wide range of vision enable you to see and hear exactly what Rovio sees and hears, on your screen, anywhere in the world!
Set waypoints so that Rovio can navigate itself around your home, without having to control each step yourself!*
At the click of a button, send Rovio back to the charging dock using its self-docking capabilities - even when you are not at home!*
With Wi-Fi connectivity, use almost any web-accessible device -from your cell phone to your PC - to easily control Rovio.
