Looks like the little brother of Rover (from the original TV show The Prisoner)
Haha, I just finished up a defense conference where they had this guy on display.
I created something similar 15 years ago for my final engineering project in college. I wanted to mass produce it, but it was patented at the time. Some time after that patent ran out, you started seeing lots of these pop up all over. The cute-est one I’ve seen to date was the white camera ball that some polar bear cubs and mom completely destroyed.
