We’re not sure how many of you guys out there need a smartphone companion, but perhaps the idea of a hackable toy that can be controlled by your smartphone might be of interest to you. The Kickstarter project dubbed BERO (Be The Robot), is essentially a 4” tall Android-looking robot that can be controlled via your smartphone. It pairs with your smartphone using Bluetooth and because the app that controls it is expected to be fully open-source, we expect that it will be able to do more than just move about, flash lights, playback music and dance.
It sports a multimotor, a microchip, onboard flash memory, speakers and an SD card slot. The “higher end” models on the other hand will feature more “bling” designs, but will also sport a slightly more sophisticated motor that will allow the BERO to perform better movements and LED lights for a flashier look. If you’d like to see the BERO made a reality, you can head on over to its Kickstarter page to pledge a donation, or you can check out the page for more details on the capabilities and inspiration of the project.
