Romotive : Your Robot Companion

Everything around us is going virtual and digital. So why not a companion. Introducing Romotive : an amazing robot companion which learns while it plays with you. It’s literally an iPhone on wheels. Here check the pic below and if you want to see it in action watch the video too:

This robot can be docked with the iPhone 5/4S/4 & iTouch 4th Gen and can be remotely controlled from anywhere as long as you have internet. You can train it as well to perform certain pre-defined functions on certain conditions. It’s got face expressions too to make it more realistic.

So next time you are on a business trip but your kids miss you a lot. No worries, just log onto to Romotive from your laptop and make them feel as if you are with them, albeit a little smaller in size and in a different shape.  There can endless number of applications one can think of with a moving, remotely controlled iPhone. Snooping is just one of them ;).

Oyster : Will it change the way you read ?

A newly launched app, Oyster aims to become to the Netflix/Spotify of books. With a fixed monthly charge of $9.95, users have access to over 100,000 titles to read. Add to that the social element which allows you to share what you’re reading with your friends. The Oyster team also guarantees an improved typography making it easier to read from your mobile devices.

The app is currently on invitation basis only. You can go to to register for an invite or simply learn more about the app. Couple of catches , though for now :

1. It’s only for the iPhone or iPod Touch (an iPad version is expected this fall). Other device users need to wait a bit.

2. It’s only available in the United States.
