You can call MiP a smartphone-controlled robot if you want. But I prefer to call him my electronic sodie butler. I Samsung Galaxy him into the kitchen, my mama places a can of Mountain Dew on his little plastic tray, and then I effortlessly navigate his impressively balanced pair of wheels back to the couch so I can enjoy my green bubbles and 100 mg of caffeine. It's a flawless operation.
Using the free MiP app, the robot responds to directional input from both Apple and Android smartphones/tablets. Using his Gesturesense technology, MiP also responds to hand motions and can detect objects blocking his path. He is programmed to function in 7 different modes: standard RC MiP; Tracking; Dance; Roam; Tricks; Cage; and Stack. Check out the video to see the manmade little man in action.
