No this isn’t a new robotic vacuum cleaner. Instead, get ready to play with your iPod, iPhone or iPad even more this year. Brookstone is exclusively selling the just released Rover AC13 Wi-‐Fi Vehicle with Video! Think of the Rover AC13 as the crazy love child of a spy cam and a robot. You can command Rover on remote missions using your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad devices and watch live video coming fro its camera, as it streams back to your idevice. The Rover is even able to capture still photos which you can send to your friends. Furthermore, the G-drive option lets you control Rover by moving your tablet or phone like a steering wheel, or you can opt to control Rover using standard arrow commands. The Rover AC13 also has built-in night vision.
Rover runs on six included AA batteries and can travel up to 200 feet away from you. For the moment, Rover and his iPhone and iPad apps will only work over Wi-Fi, but 3G should eventually be supported as well. The Rover AC13 Wi-Fi Vehicle with Video will retail for $149.99.
