Here’s how those smartphone-powered robots work & when you can buy them (video)

A couple of days ago, we told you about the free-wheelin’, music-playing robots that OLogic showed off at the Demo fall conference. Today, we can show you more about how those robots work, how much they’ll cost, when you can buy them and more.

AMP (that’s Automated Music Personality) will follow you around and play your favorite music for you. You can attach an iPod or other digital music player to its back, or you can stream your tunes directly to the robot over Bluetooth from your phone. The AMP also comes with mobile apps for iPhone and Android to control the bot (with a virtual joystick) and your music.

I sat down with Bob Allen, Ted Larson, AMP (the two-wheeled music bot) and a new robot, the Oddwerx phone dock, for a lovely tea party. Watch the video for the juicy details on pricing and availability, as well as some of OLogic’s backstory in the robotics department.
