WowWee Rovio Review

WowWee Rovio Review
 
Buy WowWee Rovio from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

We already raved quite a bit about the WowWee Rovio spy robot. It is one of our hottest gift tips for the Holidays. We already reported about a Rovio unboxing and now there is a full Rovio Review that also contains a video that shows the software interface with the Rovio transmitted video. It just looks awesome how you can steer Rovio around a remote room and point the camera towards the things you want to inspect.
Rovio seems to work much better than I expected. Robots-Dreams is quite impressed by the Rovio robot. Quote from the Review: "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."
Read the full Rovio review on Robots-Dreams. Via RobotsRule. WowWee also just launched a Rovio site dubbed MeetRovio (Via RoboCommunity) with lots of details about the first "useful" WowWee robot.

The WowWee Rovio is in high demand as it seems. It is on sale on Hammacher Schlemmer and they just bumped the shipping date from September to December 17th! WowWee lists a lot of other retailers, but none of them has the Rovio in stock yet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
