Miuro Robot Speaker


Announced last year in Japan, the Miuro

is now ready to go around the house on its own. The robot speaker on
wheels who follows you about like an annoying child (but with better
tunes) is available not just in white but in a number of hot fruity
colors like Lemon Sunburst and Acid Orange* as well as basic black.
Miuro will connect now to your 802.11b/g wireless network to stream
music from your PC or play Internet radio. It will also connect to the
PC to use the new Autonomous Motion Package, a $166 PC software that
uses Miuro's camera to map your home or office and allows you tell him
where to go.In addition to the PC, an extra $133 will buy you the optional
Remote Communication Package, which allows you to use your cellphone to
send Miuro toddling off to its destination, taking a photo of the place
with his built-in camera on arrival.
