Business description: We're Romotive, a team of nerds obsessed with building an affordable, fun personal robot. By combining smartphones with a mobile base, we create robots that do awesome things (telepresence, autonomous navigation, machine vision). Our first product, Romo, is an iDevice-powered robot that lets you video chat with anyone, anywhere in the world. You can customize Romo’s behavior through a graphical programming interface that's n00b-friendly. Teaching our bot new behaviors is easy - just update the app. Our investors believe we’ll change the world by putting a robot in every home in America. We’re well funded by SV Angel/Ron Conway, Mike Arrington, Chris Dixon, and Stanford University. Last summer we started in TechStars Seattle. Our mission is simple: build awesome robots that make normal peoples' lives better.
