It doesn’t require a complex setting. You just need to download the SmartPet free-apps from the Apple store and place your iPhone or iPod Touch to become a face of this cute robot.

More, the robot can utilize the Bluetooth feature to communicate with other robot and perform duet to sing and dance. Surely, this robot could cheer your kid.
