Romo: the smartphone Robot

Do you remember ROMO, this dock for smartphone revealed on Kickstarter a few month ago?

Romo is a highly functional robotic toy powered by your smartphone. You strap your phone in and your phone becomes Romo’s “brain.” Then you can use another phone to easily drive Romo around and even stream video or let Romo dance by himself.

Romo’s creators explain: “Our ultimate goal is to build robots that are intuitive enough for normal people to use and cheap enough for normal people to afford. If we can create a simple, extensible robotic platform that does a few things well, then we can spark a personal robotics revolution.

The project successfully raised its funding goal on November 21, 2011. Then, the Romo Smartphone Robot has been under development for sometime.

Today, the mobile caterpillar track dock is now available at the price of $149 in a variety of colours, and applications to control Romo are available to download from the Apple App Store and the Android Market. A Romotive SDK is also available, allowing anyone to build new applications for Romo to use.
