Shimi Dancing Robot for the iPhone Hits Kickstarter

Back in June, we talked about the Shimi smart musical robot based on the Android platform. The device has now hit Kickstarter with plans for coming to the iOS platform. The developers say Android users shouldn’t worry, an Android version will still be coming.

If you don’t remember this little robot, it’s an audio dock that nods its head and taps a little robot foot to the beat of your music. The project is seeking $100,000 and so far has over $18,000 pledged with 28 days to go. The developers say that the $100,000 will be used to move from the Android-based prototype to the iPhone version.

Some of the loot collected will also be used for redesigning components of the little robot for low-cost and durability. The money raised will also create tooling and parts to enable mass production of the Shimi. A pledge of $149(USD) towards the project will get you one of the first commercially available Shimi bots.
