A British-Nigerian engineer used his tech company to create robots that can be controlled by smartphones:
“It has been four long years for British-Nigerian engineer Silas Adekunle.
His company, Reach Robotics, has worked tirelessly to develop MekaMons, a line of agile robots that can be controlled by a user’s smartphone.
Smartphone-controlled robots may sound like all fun and games, but these robots are no child’s plaything: they can do battle with other MekaMons at a drop of the dime.
If that sounds dope to you, you’re in luck.
According to TechCrunch, Adekunle’s robots will be sold at Apple stores starting this week. Although a variety of robots are available, the entry-level device starts at $300.”
