NetTansor WiFi robot

Tiny robots are generally quite endearing (unless they're trying to kill you, such as in the Robin Williams film Toys), and this little fellow doesn't break with tradition.  He's a clever little fellow too, controlled via WiFi with a built-in webcam eye and triple sensor array to stop him from crashing into walls, dogs and – hopefully – fireplaces.  Weighing in at 980g and with a battery life of 2.5 hours, he'd be a great way to monitor your house while you were out.  You can also email him, though I'm not sure if that's another way to control him or simply that he's very demanding about being told he's loved.
