WowWee‘s SCOTY (for Smart Companion Operating Technology), is designed as an intelligent media hub that will greet you, read your e-mail aloud, watch your home, and even play your music. SCOTY stands roughly two feet tall and consists of an ABS plastic metal frame with a series of illuminated rectangular panels affixed to it.
SCOTY is wired- and wireless-network ready, but has little intelligence inside its metal body. Instead, it relies largely on software installed on a connected PC. WowWee (maker of the very popular Robosapien) is still tweaking the design and is estimating the price at around $399, with a projected delivery date of late 2006.
