The Romo Smartphone Robot begins to shed light into some of the future technologies that may come out over the next couple of years. First… what a great idea. Take an existing mobile phone that is used by a significant portion of the smartphone owners out there (iPhone) and build an accessory that makes the smartphone portable, meaning that it can move around.
With a remote control, via another iPhone or iPad, relocating the device is as simple as driving it, as it is powered by a new set of wheels. You can change directions, run across the room, chase dogs, and more. Give it a friendly face and add an easy to use interface, it makes things fun.
I can see similar things like this to continue to jump out. Very cool kickstarter.
