I received my foobot. Its difficult to give a good review of the device right now.
The person who designed the new device is a good designer - it looks very nice and high quality with that rubbery feel plastic.
The person who designed the app may be a good artist but not a UI designer because its all strange - it seems like the app is in an early alpha state. If you look at the android app reviews you will see what I mean. I asked a couple of technical friends and it confused them also. I will check it whenever the app updates and hopefully it will improve.
