The Spykee Spy Robot, a cool new project by the folks from Erector has the potential to be the next revolution in tank monitoring. Itâ€™s not enough to just have the latest whiz-bang internet-enabled aquarium controller, We need to know that the lights are on and the tank is fine. This is where Spykee comes in; this so-called toy is a WiFi controlled spy robot that â€œâ€¦moves, watches, hears, speaks and monitorsâ€¦â€ from any internet connected computer in the world. On vacation and having some trouble with the tank? Since Spykee has both video and VoIP abilities, you can use Spykee to aim your web camera where you need to inspect your tank in many directions or you can walk your tank sitter through some of the quick fixes in real time. At work and want to make sure your kids arenâ€™t coming in to play with Nemo? Spykee will detect any movement in the room, snap a picture and shoot it to you via email. Plus with the ability to play MP3â€™s, Spykee can keep you company during your tank maintenance, just pop in your favorite songs or podcast and work away. For just over $200, the Spykee could be a great Christmas gift for your kids that you could hijack and make your aquarium robot guard-dog. Realistically though, the technology is there are we have used piecemeal innovations to do tank cams and other remote monitoring solutions, it may be only a matter of time before a hi-tech robotic monitoring device is adopted widely in the hobbyâ€”it only makes sense.
