This WiFi-enabled, build-it-yourself robot is controllable from your PC, from close-up or afar.

Spyke is a sophisticated robot that’s also works as a spycam, but there’s more to this amazing Wi-Fi friendly contraption than sneaky surveillance with sound.

Spyke is not only a robot, but also a wireless VOIP phone, webcam and digital music player for your MP3s.

The Spyke can also detect motion which activates an alarm on your computer or it can even send you a picture by email.

The 210-piece Meccano kit allows you to make 3 different robots out of one kit.
