Startup Stories are a series of short documentaries about Techstars companies. We learn about the adventures, challenges and triumphs of building a startup. This is the story of Romotive, a team from our Seattle program building an educational robot.
Romotive is a group of nerds obsessed with building an affordable, fun robot named Romo. By combining smartphones with a mobile base, they create robots that do awesome things (telepresence, autonomous navigation, machine vision). Romo would make a great Christmas gift for the robot lover in your life. The full documentary will post on The Next Web early next year and you can check back here for the link.
