Lem Fugitt of Robots-Dreams fame has just posted a comprehensive review of the WowWee Rovio spy robot. He goes into detail about the robot including coverage on:
- Ease of unpacking and setup
- Autonomous navigation capabilites such as patrol routes and self-docking and recharging
- Wireless router setup and other configuration issues
- The Northstar navigation and its component TrueTrack beacon system
- And more ...
"We think ROVIO is positioned to be the hottest robot for the upcoming holiday season, and for a long time to come. This robots functionality, usefulness, styling, and ease of use sets new standards. Not only is it a fantastic mobile webcam platform, it also lends itself to other applications. We can easily imagine colleges and research labs using ROVIO as a robotic platform to investigate swarming, or, on the lighter side, a new robot soccer league."Lem intends to post a series of follow-up posts on Rovio technical information so I suggest your bookmark and watch his site. It's one of my favorite robot sites on the web.
