Meet Romo, the smartphone robot / by James Huggins

We saw this last week thanks to our friend Chris O'Shea. A bunch of clever, inventive chaps over at Romotive have created a way to turn your smartphone into a small robotic chum. Be honest, we all wanted one of these growing up, watching films like Short Circuit or Battle Star Galactica. Yeah you did. No? Well, maybe you know some children who'd like to get their hands on one. Either way, your very own Romo will set you back a cool $150 and you can pre-order them from the Romotive website.
