Romo App-Controlled Robotic Pet for iOS Devices

Turn your iPhone into a robot with Romo!


Not just any robot. Your new best friend.
  • Romo is a curious digital creature who lives in your phone and explores your world on his roving base
  • Just download the app and dock your iPhone device or iPod touch (see below to find out which version of Romo works with your device)
  • Let him explore your world and snap photos of what he sees
  • Program him to respond and adapt to his environment
  • You can even control Romo remotely via web browser or other iOS devices—from anywhere in the world!*
2 versions of Romo are available for different Apple devices:
  • Choose the 5, 5S, 5C version of Romo for your iPhone 5/5S/5C or iPod touch (5th generation)
  • Choose the 4, 4S version to dock your iPhone 4, 4S or iPod touch (4th generation)
Meet Romo—the adorable digital creature that lives in your iOS device.
He’s the first downloadable robot for iOS that senses his environment and interacts with his surroundings. Just download the Romo app and dock him in the roving base. Let him explore and snap photos. Train him to recognize your face and greet you with a smile, or control him remotely from other iOS devices. It’s super easy, and the possibilities are endless!

You play. Romo learns.
Customize Romo in seconds with his easy-to-use in-app mobile training platform. Program his personality and write your own apps for almost anything: Teach him to act happy when he sees you. Train him to laugh when you tickle him. But leave Romo by himself, and he'll be sad—so he’ll go looking for someone to keep him company. He’s VERY curious!

    Broke my phone

    It was really great until it drove over my base molding, tripped and broke the screen on my phone. If you watch it carefully, it's fine, but you have to be careful.

      Emma's uncle bought this for her for Christmas. As a tech-dad I was excited but skeptical...could a robot toy really get my girl excited about STEM? Well, yeah! It did! Emma goes no where without her Romo. She hasn't stopped playing with him since Christmas morning and is even showing interest in making her own robot(!). Just, wow.

                        We bought this for our daughter's birthday. She loves her Romo so much that she wants to do everything with it.She sleeps,eats,dances and even does her homework with it.She says Romo is her best friend.One day she wanted to take it to school and cried for that for a long time.Everyone at school knows about her Romo.
                        Whenever she has a question about it she calls the customer service and they always help her.We are really satisfied with the product.Definitely recommend it.

                                        Romo is an awesome toy for both adults and children. You can teach it how to do different things and experience different emotions! And our niece loves to play chase with it. This is great!
