    Product Summary

    With Rovio™, you will always be just a click away from the people and places that are important to you.

    Rovio is the wireless Internet equipped mobile webcam that enables you to view and interact with its environment through streaming video and audio, wherever you are!

    The TrueTrack™ Navigation System allows you to use the Rovio interface to store waypoints - with one click Rovio will automatically navigate itself to the chosen point. Rovio's built-in LED headlight will help you guide it even in dimly lit locations, so you'll always know what is going on at home or at the office. No need to worry about Rovio running low on power while you're away - the self-docking function allows you to send Rovio back to the charging dock to recharge, with the click of a button on your browser.
