What is the WowWee Rovio?

Rovio was unveiled at CES last week and is a cool new Wifi enabled robot / toy / surveillance device from WowWee - the makers of the popular Robosapien range.

The futuristic looking robot has a camera and microphone integrated, and using the wireless connectivity from any browser, you can control him, moving him around your home or office and see for yourself what's going on. He has a docking station which he can find his way back to and charge himself up in.

The first thing that occured to me is, can this thing traverse stairs or is it limited to one floor of your home (I assume it is). It's cute idea, but I'm not sure how much use it is as a serious surveillance device, or how much fun it could be in trying to be too many things, it actually ends up limited its own appeal.
