(There are two versions of the product, one that works with an iPhone 5/5s with a lightning connector, and one that works with an iPhone 4/4s with the "old" 30-pin Apple connector. As far as I can tell, the products are identical except for the different connectors, so I'm posting the review on both product pages.)

This robot is absolutely amazing! I'm just sorry that the company behind it is positioning it as a "robotic pet" -- i.e. a toy. It's so much more. In fact, it's like a remote-control NASA rover that you can control from the other side of the planet and use to explore the environment the robot is in. It's incredible.

First, let's start with the "toy" functionality. As a toy, it's delightful and hilarious. When your iPhone is plugged into the tractor tread base, the iPhone takes on the personality of a little robot. The animation and personality are very well done. Because the iPhone app controls the treads, the robot can move around and interact with you very naturally. The programming is great, and you'll really start to feel like the little robot is alive.

But the real value of this device from my point of view is that it can turn an iPhone into a rover that can be controlled from another iPhone far away. On Christmas eve this year, the grandparents were out west, but the grandchildren were out east. Telephone calls are fine, and Facetime calls are even better, but it wasn't the same as if the grandparents were here with us. So I put my iPhone with the Romo app into the base, and the grandparents (who were two thousand miles away) loaded the Romo remote control app onto their phone. Then they "called" Romo using the app on their phone. Once we answered, they could drive Romo all around our house.

I wanted to foster my nephew's interest in robots and computer programming. This toy is just what I was looking for! He loves it, and I can tell he's learning because he is asking increasingly detailed questions about how the robot works and how he can "program" it.

It has some fun interactivity but you can't remote access from other networks as far as I can tell, I was hoping to use it to check in on my dog when i was away but no joy there.

Romo is a creature jam-packed with fun and life. Training Romo is really cool and great. You can have your own robot pet that will react to how you train him. On top of that, you can even phone-in from your computer to control your robot and see the world through his eyes.

Another reviewer said "training Romo is really cool and great." Try telling that to Wade Phillips. This should come with a warning: "Choking hazard. Keep away from playoffs."
