Frequently Asked Questions
We will be on both Android and iOS, though we expect to debut the iOS app in January and the Android app in March. The app is free.
What devices and operating systems are the apps compatible with?
Our apps are compatible with:
- Any iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) running iOS 8.2 or greater will work… unless you are using an iPad 2. The iPad 2 does not have the hardware for Bluetooth LE/Smart and will not be able to talk to the Kamigami.
- Any Android device running KitKat (Android OS 4.4) or newer that has the hardware for Bluetooth LE/Smart.
- The following Amazon Fire devices running Fire OS 4 or newer: Fire HD 7 (2014), Fire HD 10 (2015), Fire HD 8 (2015), Fire / Fire Kids Edition (2015), Fire HDX 8.9 (2014), Fire HD 6 (2014).
Where do you ship to? When will the robots ship?
We are currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter where we are shipping everywhere in the world! Backers outside the US and Canada should select the INTERNATIONAL BACKER tier.
We expect to ship our first batch of 1000 robots in January 2016, and we expect full shipping to begin in March 2016. International shipping begins in May 2016.
Does it need batteries?
Kamigami include a built-in rechargeable battery, there’s no need to buy one separately.
On a full charge, how long does the battery last? How do I recharge it?
About 30-60 minutes of playtime. Kamigami are charged w/ standard microUSB cable, which is included in the kit.
How durable is the robot?
Very durable. The plastic-fabric composite is flexible, and uses rip-stop properties to prevent tears. Kamigami are especially robust to drops because of their light weight, and have survived drops of over 60 ft (6 stories).
