Meccano (famous for its Erector Set like building toys) is about to drop Spyke, a WiFi compatible robot that can be controlled via the internet. It is advertised as both a home protection robot (takes picture and sends email if motion sensor is activated) and pet checker. What a happy day this is! Now I can check on my pets while I'm at work. Hey look, there's my dog eating cat turds out of the litterbox! Oh joy, the cat is peeing in my monitor again! The robot is sweet, but some things are better left a mystery.
