Yesterday we reported already about a WowWee Rovio Review here is yet another raving review of the cool Wi-Fi Spy Robot by RoboCommunity.
Quote from the review: "While I used Windows XP for the setup and initial uses of Rovio, I just couldn't bring myself to keep using Windows. Happily, Rovio seems to function just as well under Linux with Firefox as it did on Windows. The two way audio features only works with Internet Explorer, so I had to give that up, otherwise things seem about the same. As mentioned, Rovio navigates via a beacon that is projected onto the ceiling from the charging base. Unfortunately, my house isn't well designed for ceiling based navigation. The living room has vaulted ceilings, and the dining room has a beam running lengthwise through it, which seems to obscure Rovio's line of sight."

Rovio is on sale on Hammacher Schlemmer.
