Want to be able to watch every room in your house while you’re away?
How about using your home phone to answer your cell?
Today is Cyber Monday, the day when technological gifts beam their way to the top of the Christmas list, and Liberal’s Radio Shack has some of the most advanced devices on the market today.
One of the new devices that will make its way under Christmas trees this year is Rovio, the robot webcam that provides home security.
“Rovio can be accessed over the Internet, and you can control him from wherever you are,” store manager Clint Parker said. “You can move him from room to room to see what is going on in your house, and when his battery gets low, he will plug himself in.”
Rovio was one of many remote control devices available this holiday season. The technology store also has remote control cars, helicopters, robots and more.
“We’ve added some of the higher end vehicles this year,” Parker said.
One monster truck runs on fuel instead of batteries with other devices starting as low as $39.
Radio Shack also has the most popular gaming systems, from XBox to the Playstation 3 and Wii units. But they also have another less- known brand called Xavix.
Similar to the Wii, Xavix comes with bats, golf clubs and more for each of the sporting games. With the purchase of three games, the system itself is free.
Another handy consumer device is a home phone system from Panasonic that allows the user to program his cell phone to the phone and answer the home phone when the cell phone rings.
“You don’t need home phone service for this to work,” Parker said.
Radio Shack also features a full line of iPods and GPS devices for the car to make holiday travel easier.
