Turn Your Smartphone Into A Robot For Under $80
The Romo kit allows the iPhone to become a fully functional robot that can be easily programmed.
Peter Seid and Phu Nguyen from Romotive have developed the Romo that allows anyone to turn their smartphone into a fully functional and programmable robot. The project initially started on the crowd funding site Kickstarter and has gained tremendous support. With still more than a week to go, it has received 806 backers and has pledged nearly $80,000. For pledging just $78 or more, the backer will receive a Romo smartphone robot kit early next year in 2012.
