Sony Ericsson introduces Bluetooth remote camera on wheels
Sony Ericsson’s new Bluetooth controlled camera, ROB-1, can move around freely, steered wirelessly by the joystick or keypad on a compatible mobile phone or the touch screen on Sony Ericsson P900/P910 smartphones.

The phone will show on the screen exactly what ROB-1 is looking at. Images can be captured just as it would be on normal camera phones.

The ROB-1 can rove around for a distance of up to 50 meters from the user, streaming video to the phone’s display. The device has three wheels and spherical shape, which is combined with camera technology to make it agile and flexible with a wide field of vision. Eleven centimetres in diameter, ROB-1 can move forwards, backwards, look around corners, pivot on the spot or tilt the camera 70º upwards and 20º downwards. An ultra bright light on the front leads the way and allows shots to be taken in dark spaces. Onboard memory enables users to take pictures and stored in the ROB-1 before either storing pictures in your phone, or transferring them to a PC via the supplied USB cable.

The company’s Bluetooth Car CAR-100 (read #content.asp?contentid=1741'>review), first seen in the Sony Ericsson stand at CeBIT 2003, pioneered the concept of using mobile phone Bluetooth capability for entertainment purposes.

The Bluetooth Motion Cam ROB-1 will be available during Q3 2005.
