Do you think Robots are complicated machines limited to “Brainiacs who” understand the complicacies of micromechanics and microelectronics, spending hours working with sparky little wires and speaking in mechanical voices mostly in C, C++, Ruby and OMGWAAL (Oh_My_God_What_An_Awesome_Language). Hmmm… that might be true! But so what if we can’t make a robot, we can atleast buy them. What if i say, you might already be owning one!
Your smartphone, packed with powerful processors and a ton of sensors, already pass a hell lot of criterion found in a Robot.

The smartphone robot, which started off with two wheels is all set to reach new horizons. Evereyday, the guys at Romotive work over upgrading Romo’s software and building a new body to add up to its functionality. Have a look for yourself here.
I have already ordered my Romotive Robo pack for $78 (without the iPhone obviously), all set to order my iPhone to bring me a cup of coffee. When are you ordering?
