Meccano is all set to unveil a WiFi-controlled, Erector-branded robot kit. The Spyke certainly improves on Meccano's earlier metallic attempts at robot sets: this little fella is capable of feeding a webcam video stream to a PC over the aforementioned wireless connection, as well as climbing stairs with its triangular tank-track; that's right parents, your staircase can no longer keep your kids safe.
These basic specs combined with the teaser image, above, should be enough to perk up the ears of all the consumer robot enthusiasts out there.
* MP3 player
* Wi Fi
* VOIP phone and webcam
* Responds to commands from a Web page
* Climbs stairs
* IR auto-parking recharging system.
