The problem with most mobile phones is that they truly are not mobile. The Oddwerx Autonomous Smartphone Robot, solves this problem by turning an iPhone or Android phone into an autonomous robot. Oddwerx is the brainchild of OLogic, Inc of Sunnyvale, California. Oddwerx offers support for the most advanced robotics R&D projects such as ROS from Willow Garage, Cloud Robotics from MyRobots.com, and the Google Cellbots project. Oddwerx is modular, multiplatform, small, wireless, extendable and hackable, with a developer library to allow for anyone to develop sociable robots.

OLogic chose Kickstarter because it is the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects. Ted Larson, CEO and Co-Founder of OLogic, was asked to comment on the timing of the Kickstarter launch and he responded “OLogic needed to raise some capital to fund the tooling for the robot, and Kickstarter is the perfect venue. It offers the ability to pre-sell finished robots based on the design and prototypes alone, and creates an instant customer base when the product is complete. It also allows OLogic to market test demand for the product before it is produced.”
