FoneBot is available for sale or rental engagements.

Island Robots of Florida is proud to introduce their new FoneBot designed for entertainment and promotional use. This life size (5’ 8” tall) walking talking billboard is a real crowd pleaser for young and old alike.

Built like a common smart phone, FoneBot is instantly recognizable and invites even the most casual observer to approach him and investigate his capabilities, wit and humor.

FoneBot is fully mobile (he can go anywhere a wheelchair can), and he can spin his head 360 degrees to see where he’s been!  He is very sturdy and can serve drinks, snacks or pass out promotional materials. And just like your phone, he vibrates when taking a call or shaking hands with a new acquaintance.

His full chest video monitor can be programmed with app buttons, logos, promotional materials, or a multi-media presentation. Since no one can resist a photo op or selfie with FoneBot, your message is sure to get tons of exposure.

This option comes with the above listed movements, a programmable/addressable sound card, and laser proximity detector. The autonomous package allows the robot to operate independently in the absence of an operator. When an observer approaches, the robot initiates a programmed routine of choreographed movements while delivering a speech or other information. This is great for those times when an event operator takes a break so the robot is not dormant. Also great for static displays while retaining the ability to go fully mobile in manual mode with the simple flip of a switch.
