Romo was demonstrating its eponymous iOS device controlled robot. The Romo is a small track-wheeled toy that docks an iPhone or iPod touch and with a companion iOS app can then perform tasks such as detecting motion, moving around a room or house, following other objects, and more. Pre-defined modules allow Romo to respond to a user’s face, and play chase, among other games and tasks, however behaviours are completely customizable from within the app allowing users to create their own “programs” without actually having to write a line of code. A Telepresence feature also allows the user to control a Romo with two-way video and audio from anywhere with an Internet connection.

  • Romo

    Romo is available in both Dock Connector and Lightning connector versions and supports the iPhone 4 and later models and fourth- and fifth-generation iPod touch, with an iPhone 4S or later required for Romo's Telepresence feature.

  • Romo

    Romo incorporates a 2000 mAh NiMH battery, providing two hours of constant play on a single charge, and can be recharged from any powered USB outlet. An SDK is also available to allow iOS developers to code their own apps that add new features to Romo.
