Spyke WiFiRobot features: Vid-Cam, Mic, Speaker, VoIP, Mp3.. super cool and different

The tank-treaded robot, Spyke, by Erector is a unique robot truly different than its competitors from WowWee. This little tyke is controlled from a computer via a local WiFi connection or through the Internet.

The Spyke features some interesting functions such as:

• Video Camera
• Microphone
• Loudspeaker
• VoIP capability
• Digital Music Player

It is currently a prototype and won't be release until the end of June 06 as there are still some bugs to be ironed out. It will retail for approximately $270 (250 Euros) when launched.

It will be distributed in USA by Eerector.

Spyke features a built-in camera and can also send you e-mails of those snapshots whenever it detects a motion, and even features a VoIP phone (compatible with MSN, Skype, Google Talk)
