Romotive is the startup behind “Romo” – a device that turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into an interactive robot on wheels.
You can control Romo from anywhere in the world using any other smart device, or a browser. That means Romo can essentially act as a sort of “Skype on wheels.”
Romotive is also working on smile and frown recognition, which would enable Romo to read and react to human emotion.
You can reserve a Romo now for $149 with a shipping date of April 2013.
Keller Rinaudo and Jen McCabe of Romotive tell us how Romo can become Toy Story-like relatable robot in real life.
