Meccano's WiFi robot

Wireless progresses further into the toy world with the Spyke WiFi Spy Robot, created by Meccano, and set to be released under the legendary Erector brand. The robot moves on treads and is controlled from a PC, where users can watch what it does through a webcam. This should permit control from remote Internet-connected systems, which may also make it useful for home surveillance, especially as the robot can be set to dock with a power outlet automatically. Functions don't stop there either, with the Spyke having support for VoIP and digital music playback. No shipping dates have been confirmed, but Meccano says the price should be about $270.
