Romo first made waves on Kickstarter, where Peter Seid and Phu Nguyen raised $114,796 to fund their project. Why so much love from the internet? Because Romo uses one of the most widely spread, easy-to-use computers on the market—the iPhone. Simply download the Romo app and you can make the robot your personal spy as it zips around on its rubber treads, feeding you live video. The genius of Romo is how easily customizable it is. Program new functions yourself or just wait for Romotive to release new apps through the App Store. Don’t worry, Android users; Romotive says it’s releasing an Android app by Christmas.
