Every time I think about Robots taking over our everyday lives, I think about the movie "I Robot" with Will Smith. The way that technology is going now-a-days, this could be a possibility.

Meet Romo, he is a robot that has a dock for your iPhone. Romo cannot make you coffee or even answer the door for you, but he can make you smile. He has real emotions and is responsive.

According to the Kickstarter page for Romo, this friendly robot is still under construction. The founders of Romo built 2,000 by hand in a small Las Vegas apartment and sent them out to people that are contributing to the making of Romo via Kickstarter. You will not be able to find Romo in stores, but I see in the future these being as big as the Firby phenomenon in the 90's.

Here is a video all about this awesome robot for your iPhone!
