Robert Oschler, of Robots Rule, has a video up showing a preview of his Robodance software controlling the new Wow Wee Rovio remote surveillance bot via a Nintendo Wiimote. With this set-up, a Wiimote can control the Rovio from just about anywhere in the world via Bluetooth and a Web connection. Robert plans on having this new version of Robodance available by early next year.
