>> What's up guys? I'm Brian Tong with CNET, here at Show Stoppers, and I have a hot new product from Wowee [assumed spelling] just announced here at CES. It's called the Roveo [assumed spelling]. Now it's the first Wi-Fi enabled robotic webcam, check out the design. And what it can do is if you have an internet browser connected to the internet, you can actually control this guy. You control where it goes, what it sees, so it's really cool. Now up here is where the webcam is located and it has three positions. You can have it on ground level, middle, or high to shoot up at people. Now the camera itself, it can shoot video at twenty to thirty frames per second, it can take stills, and then you can email them to your friends, so that's pretty sweet. Right now I'm here at a computer with its web browser open, and it's talking to the Roveo right now. So what you can see, we talked about its webcam position, I can click on the three different positions and you can see its webcam is gonna raise, and the image will actually change over here. And then some of the other cool features is that you actually have direct control to navigate this unit. So I can drive it forward, I can click on this arrow over here and we can even rotate it so you can move it around your house whenever you want. Now another thing that you have is this is its grounding or its charging station, and up here this is a projector. It's the first toy to have a micro GPS system, it's actually using North Start Technology inside of here. [ background music ] So if you want to move it around your house, it talks to North Star and it knows exactly where it is. So the price of this thing is gonna be two ninety nine. It's coming out in Fall of 2008, and here you have it, the Roveo from Wowee. ^M00:01:31 [ music ]
