You don’t need me to tell you how incredibly cool programmable robots are. Robots like this can cost a person a boatload of cash if they don’t possess the proper technological know how to build one. Well, both of those worries have been taken care of with this project called Romo (no, not the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys). The Romo is a programmable robotic dock for your smartphone that works with various apps to control how the dock interacts with your device.
Powered by various apps, users can expect to do some pretty awesome things with this dock, like control the device remotely. Interestly, the Romo first started as a Kickstarter project, now the new creation is ready for prime time, commanding a price of $149. It’s compatable with lots of the popular handheld devices of today such as the iPhone 4S, iPod Touch, Motorola Droid handsets, and Samsung Galaxy handsets. I could definitely see the Romo in a store like Brookstone.
