WowWee introduced a huge line-up of new robots at the CES 2008. Here is the first one we feature today. The WowWee Rovio is a home exploration and telepresence robot with Wifi. I already love it. This one is perfect to sneak up on your cat while you are away. The design of the Rovio is very cool too. It looks like a sting ray on wheels.

Update: WowWee Rovio is on Sale
The WowWee Rovio robot is a WiFi enabled robotic webcam that moves in all directions with ease and can be controlled remotely using any web accessible device including a cell phone, PC or video game console. Through a built-in camera that streams video and audio, users can view and interact with Rovio's environment, surveying their home or office remotely through streaming video and audio transmitted via the Rovio robot.

The Rovio robot is also the first to feature the NorthStar smart navigation and positioning system, which represents a major breakthrough in robotics. Working like a micro-GPS system, the NorthStar system enables the Rovio robot to know where it is, locate the position of other objects, and navigate from place to place with pinpoint accuracy, entirely under its own control.

We still have to wait until early fall to get our hands on the Rovio. The WowWee Rovio has an MSRP of $299.

CES 2008 will start officially on January 7th, but the first event is already on Saturday. We are in Las Vegas and will be covering the CES 2008 first hand.
