Ollie, the founder and CEO of OllieTech.com, pointed out that prices are dropping even further on the popular WowWee Rovio Robot Webcam. It's currently showing up online for $139 or less, and is a real deal if you are in the market for a highly mobile remote presence robot.
That being said, you'll need to take some caution. Some readers have reported that the Rovio application doesn't work with 64-bit Windows systems, and they have had difficulty get a timely response from WowWee on their questions. An alternative support resource is the WowWee user groups over at RoboCommunity.com. The site features a wealth of material and information from other users, many of whom are more than glad to answer your questions, or even assist you in hacking your new bot.
