Cellbots aren’t just about using your phone to control a robot (which is cool too), but we aim on making your phone be the robot. It already has touch, hearing, speech, vibration, and many more senses, but needs legs (or wheels) to finally be the free roaming robot it was born to be. Check out examples of phone freedom in our robot platforms section and get started with our software today.

Check out our other articles for more details and the links on the right to find source code, pictures, and videos or more cellbots in action. Feel free to share your projects, questions, and ideas on the Cellbots discussion group, or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t let your cell phone suffer from another day of sitting idle on the charger or jammed deep in your bag – set her free!
