This thing looks pretty good IMO. Been out for over a year but I only saw it today in a Best Buy popup ad. $100 mostly telepresence with video/audio, moveable camera with IR lights, recharge base, Wifi access (says from anywhere, but that's usually the weak link of these). Does a lot of what WowWee's Rovio did, minus the Northstar navigation beacon system. That was way cool.
Could be handy for checking around a remote property, but don't forget to return to the charger when you're done!

"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."
