Early video review of Spykee the robot


Our pal Robert Oschler sent us this message:

The first videos by actual owners of the long-awaited Spykee robot have just surfaced on the Web. In the video, the open source Spykee WiFi robot made by Meccano is put through its paces by biker blogger Sven. He shows the robot in unassembled form, then cuts to it in fully assembled form and ready for use. He zips the little robot around his house and shows you the video feed through the Spykee software interface. He also shows you the different parts of the interface and what they do including playing music, sound effects, and video effects, and gives his opinion on the new WiFi spy robot.
