February 28th Update
Hey Romo Users,
We know you’re anxiously waiting for your robots.
An update: Last week 2000 circuit boards arrived at our workshop in Vegas. We pulled them out and spread them across the living room floor.
It was a big moment, because after all the pre-assembly (200+ hours) we were finally ready to put the Romos together and send them off to their new families – you.
But then we tested the circuit boards, and…no dice.
Circuit boards are essentially Romo’s organs, and unfortunately they’re not working the way they should be. We had to reprogram them.
So we spent all weekend completely re-doing Romo’s firmware, which tells the circuits what to do.
And since we had to re-do everything anyways, we decided to go for broke.
The good news? Your Gen 2 Romos will be way more agile; you’ll be able to move at variable speeds, and have a better driving experience thanks to a nifty new joystick controller interface.
We know this sucks, and we are really sorry about the delay. We can’t apologize enough.
Feel free to call Zach directly 602-456-9475 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Harangue us or let us know what we can do to make Romo better.
We’ll post here the DAY your Gen 2 Romos start shipping, which will happen in the next 2 weeks.
Thanks again everyone. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate you all being a part of the Romo family.
Here’s a short video from Peter showing you what’s up:
