Introducing your kids to programming is now a lot more fun with this tiny robotic wonder called Romo Robot. Unlike other soulless creations, Romo’s got a style of his own. It uses your iPhone as its brain on a caterpillar track and converts the touchscreen into a bright blue face. Once done, your Romo is ready to follow all your commands. You can make it pass through predefined tracks or play with a ball or even make it undergo various facial expressions. It’s definitely a robot built for your kids to learn while they play. But the biggest wonder comes in the fact that it also makes video calls possible, as if it were "Skype on wheels". On a full charge, it can continuously stay active for two hours and make your kids have a great time.
