More on our little robo-friend "Rovio"

Recently I posted about Wow Wee's upcoming robot called Rovio. I find it to be a very interesting robot since it uses a unique method to move around a home. WowWee partnered with Evolution Robotics to implement the 'Northstar' indoor navigation system which makes it possible for Rovio to move around your home without bumping around like a blind mouse! There is much potential with this navigation technology for other future home robots, let us see (hope) that other home robot companies partner with Evolution Robotics to bring us better and efficient robot navigation.
