Romo, The Smart Phone Robot makes your wish its command

Romotive Romo-1

When I think of robots, I think of Rosie the Robot from the Jetsons cartoons or ASIMO, Honda’s robot. The folks at Romotive have a different idea; it’s called Romo, The Smart Phone Robot. Romo is basically a small, tracked vehicle that measure 5.6″ long x 4.5″ wide x 3″ high.  You plug either your iPhone 4, 4s, or 4th generation iPod Touch into it and use any of the following to control it:

  • iPhone 4 or higher
  • iPad 2 or higher
  • iPad mini
  • 4th generation iPod Touch

Romo is operated using a custom app that you download onto your iOS device. Romo also has the ability to be operated remotely via telepresence. Romo costs $149 and will start shipping in June 2013.

    OK, but if they’re going to call it the Romo, they’re going to have to expect it to perform well from September through November, but fail in December.
