Sony Ericsson Bluetooth Motion Cam ROB-1

If you see some bright lights at about the height of your ankle, you'd better watch out. It could be Sony Ericsson's latest invention wheeling around the corner. Moving forwards - and backwards - on three wheels, the ROB-1 is steered wirelessly from a Bluetooth mobile phone.


And be sure to give ROB-1 a smile. One of your friends is probably around the corner, maneuvering the round-shaped camera in your direction. The VGA camera at the front streams video to the phone that is steering it, so wave to your friend via ROB-1 and pose when your picture is taken. We bet you didn't know Bluetooth wireless technology could be this much fun.

Please note: Rob-1 is compatible with any phone that has a Java platform with Bluetooth API JSR-82 but video streaming functionality is only available with the Sony Ericsson P900, P910.
