Forget Jarvis from Iron Man, meet Romo the Robot


Gizmo users, to write a blog about a group of nerds that have created an intelligent robot may seem a little redundant. It is like me writing a blog to say Lebron James is really good at basketball.

However a team of nerds at Romotive have indeed created a cool robot toy called Romo,  designed to wander about your home or office.

This robot leverages the intelligence of your iOS smart phone device to do some really cool things such as telepresence. The Wi-Fi Drive will give the user a birds eye, I mean small robots-eye view of the world. Additionally behavior intelligence patterns can be modified based on learned outcomes to environmental triggers.

The nerds at Romottive have also uploaded an app for Romo  on the Apple App store that will learn new tricks with any update to the app.
