Bots are arriving around the world!
Hey Romo fam-
We're emailing today because robots are showing up on people’s doorsteps around the world. Huzzah!
The little bots in this batch of 1400 taught our whole team some really important lessons. It's crazy. In 3 months we've gone from a 2 person operation in Seattle with a single demo robot to a 9 person nerdy wolf pack building and shipping thousands of Romos direct from our living room floor in Las Vegas.
One final hurdle: We're still waiting on Apple to approve the app that will let you explore with your new Romo at your side. We've had the app submitted for weeks and hoped it would be approved in time, so we shipped. But as of this morning we're still waiting, and unfortunately this means you're still waiting too.
The robots won’t work properly until the lastest version of the iOS app hits the app store (the Android version will be released at the same time). We’ll let you know personally via email as soon as the Romo app is approved on both app stores and share the link. We hope this will be by the end of the week.
Thank you all so much for your support. You’ve helped us make our dream of building an awesome little robot a reality. The picture below pretty much sums up how we feel right now...
The Romotive Nerds
