At your command

Who wouldn’t want their very own robot—especially a fully-customizable one that takes on a whole new life with the help of an iPhone or iPod Touch. Sounds futuristic. But RoboMe is real, creative, and super fun. Right out of the box, RoboMe walks, talks, and even dances. Using multiple sensors, RoboMe™ autonomously navigates its surroundings and avoids obstacles. Let it roam free or take command of its every move with the included remote controller. Download the free RoboMe app and that’s when the real robotics begin. Replace the RoboMe face plate with your iPhone or iPod Touch and customize the way it looks using the avatar or your own face. Give RoboMe a name of your choosing and program it to speak and respond just the way you want it to. RoboMe can even be programmed to recognize your voice and follow verbal commands. While children of all ages are sure to get a kick out of RoboMe, kids ages 10 and up will be able to make the most of the programmable features. Not at home? Log in from elsewhere using another iPhone or iPod Touch and RoboMe works like a nanny cam. Whatever RoboMe sees, you can see too. You can even communicate through your device and the one connected to RoboMe. It's the next best thing to being there. The future has arrived—it’s just waiting for you to tell it what to do and say.

    Hi Andrew,

    I am on a shared data plan, this maybe a silly question....does using the app use up data fromt he shared data plan?

  • Andrew
    Andrew – Special Guest
    10/30/2013 1:08 PM

    @roseann Hey Rosseann. The app will use very little data when using basic functionalities like voice recognition. You can track usage in your settings. Telepresence, however, will use a lot of data so my recommendation would be to only run it when you're on a wifi network.

  • Andrew

    @roseann Yes, any iOS device is totally fine as long as it's equipped with iOS 6.0 or later.

    @Bill Hey Bill, thanks for the great feedback. Totally get where you're coming from and there is already a big emphasis on Android for WowWee's future products. As I mentioned to Stephanie, for the initial launch we are focusing exclusively on iOS, yet we are 100% willing to explore Android for RoboMe if the demand supports it.

    From watching the video it looks like you have to have a second phone dedicated to always be attached to the robot in order for it to function. I'm assuming this phone will have to be fully functional on your phone plan. Is this correct?

  • Andrew
    Andrew – Special Guest
    10/30/2013 2:05 PM

    @Suzanne Hey Suzanne. To interact with telepresence you will need a secondary device. It doesn't require a plan to be functional, because it works with wifi, as well as data.

    Hi Shira,

    So sorry you feel this way. We always choose Grommets that are family friendly and would never intentionally offend anyone in our community. Was there anything specific about the RoboMe that you found inappropriate? We'd love to resolve any confusion on the level of appropriateness or clarify something for you.

    Hi Wendy,

    As you can see from the video, the beauty is that RoboMe is completely customizable. This 10 year old boy could explore on his own to customize the RoboMe to do anything he wants. He could even change the voice or make it respond to his commands. The more interested in tech and phone apps he is, the more use he'll get out of RoboMe.

The launch day conversation has ended. Please direct further questions about this Grommet to our Community Experience Team.
