NetTansor WiFi robot cam
A robotic webcam called the NetTansor will come out in Japan December 16th, says Japanese site Impress Watch. The cam will use 802.11b/g wireless to accept commands from a remote PC, which will also be able to engage in two-way voice communication. Three sensors and an image recognition system will prevent the robot from crashing into objects. A somewhat limited battery supply will offer just two and a half hours of runtime. The robot will sell in Japan for 50,000 yen ($419.83 US).
