Romotive Romo for iPhone 5S / 5 is a friendly robot that teaches kids the basics of computer programming and robotics through challenges, creative play, and advanced communications. Using an iPhone or iPod touch as his brain, Romo makes robotic technology available to everyone.
After downloading Romo’s free app from the App Store, kids can journey with him across the galaxy, playing challenging missions, which introduce the fundamental concepts behind the software that runs our technological world. As they advance, kids will discover the tale of Romo’s otherworldly past, while preparing him for the “Intergalactic Space Race.” On the way, they’ll unlock many new abilities, as Romo learns to explore his environment, follow faces, respond to touch, follow paths, and even chase moving objects. With regular free updates from the App Store, Romo is one of the first truly evolving toys. His abilities and features expand over time as users find new ways to play and learn with him.
In addition to being a fun and engaging way to teach computer science, Romo functions as an advanced communications device. Users can invite friends and family from anywhere in the world to drive their Romo while streaming two-way video and audio. Romo can also be controlled via Wi-Fi from any iOS device, allowing users to control his facial expressions and send him on expeditions around the house.
