Erector Spykee looks interesting as low cost telepresence robot despite its flaws. It looks a little easier to modify than the Rovio since it is compatible with Erector (Meccano) sets.
The community support for the Spykee seems pretty good with some forums, a wiki and a something about a fuel cell powered Spykee. Since it runs Linux, I wonder if you could port ROS to it.
It also seems to be popular in France.
