For a sim­ple de­sign, this ro­bot is pretty clever. It is like a phone dock but on cater­pil­lar tread and the app turns an Ap­ple de­vice into a self­nav­i­gat­ing ro­bot. It’s de­signed to work with an Ap­ple iPod Touch or iPhone 5 (we squeezed an iPhone 6 on to it but don’t rec­om­mend it). Setup is sim­ple — just charge it up, down­load the app, and add the de­vice. You can train your ro­bot to record a video and to de­tect faces. It is far eas­ier to nav­i­gate than a drone and likely to be a hit with kids, par­tic­u­larly among those aged eight to 10.
