WowWee Rovio: A Robot That Allows Voice-Over-Internet Scolding

I was reading a Forbes.com article about a robot called WowWee. I had heard about it before, but this is the first time I read about the voice-over-Internet scolding capabilities:

"Earlier this month, Hong Kong-based robotics company WowWee began selling Rovio, a $300 black, three-wheeled surveillance robot equipped with a webcam, speakers and a microphone. Connect the bot to your home wi-fi network and you can control it through a Web browser from anywhere in the world".

You can use the Rovio's electronic eye to monitor your house via streamed video. The article mentions being able to remotely monitor a cat that is scratching a couch while at work. I see bigger applications, like telling a teen that is having a pool party instead of finishing his/her term paper for school - that his/her parents may be a work BUT THEY CAN STILL SEE WHAT IS GOING ON....
