FOX on Tech: Smartphone Robot

Do you have old smartphones piling up that you don't know what to do with? One company has an idea of what you could do with them.

FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony reports:

Audio clip:

FOX on Tech.

Here's a question:

(Rinaudo) "What are you going to do with your old iPhone or what are you going to do with you old iPod."

Now an answer:

(Rinaudo) "Well, I'll just take it and put it on a robot."

That robot is named Romo:


He's a phone attached to a little base with wheels and a face.


Sounds a little like Number 5, if you've ever seen the 80's movie "Short Circuit". Keller Rinaudo is CEO of the Las Vegas company full of self-proclaimed nerds that makes Romo.

(Rinaudo) "It's wandering around murmuring in like baby robot language and like bumping into your bed. People have an emotional connection."

Almost like a little pet that costs $150.
