BeatBots Co-founder Marek Michalowski Wants You to Hack the Keepon

BeatBots Co-founder Marek Michalowski sat down for an interview with Engadget to talk about hacking the Keepon.

When we visited BeatBots’ San Francisco headquarters a few days back, the company’s co-founder Marek Michalowski was a bit hush-hush when it came to discussing the future of Keepon, not saying much beyond alluding to upcoming updates for the move-busting little ‘bot. He was, however, more than happy to talk about hacking the beat-monitoring toy, something the company had in mind when it first designed the consumer-friendly toy. “We felt it was important to allow people to hack it and be able to do more things with the toy than it can do out of the box,” Michalowski told us.
