iRobot's ConnectR seems to be live and kicking!
Received news from iRobot that ConnectR is live and kicking. Not too long ago I asked the whereabouts of this interesting robot and personally thought it may have been stillborn knowing that Wowwee had a very similar product with great features. It seems that ConnectR will be re-designed to be the "boss" robot in your home, it will give the owner the ability to control the other robots and probably other devices. iRobot is leaning towards giving current and future robots the ability to communicate with each other and be connected to the web (could it be the beginning of skynet?) . All of this sounds great but no cigar until we see the first ConnectR out in the field for testing.
