If you are a novice user, we recommend that you read the basic operating instructions for Loomo before using the robot for the first time.
The round button at the (front) base of Loomo's body will power Loomo on/off.
Before powering Loomo on, please stand Loomo upright using the lifting handle. Push the power button, and Loomo will automatically activate its self-balancing ability.
Note: Please do not let go of the handle before Loomo activates its self-balancing ability.
When powering Loomo off, please first grasp the lifting handle. Press the power button, and then gently lay Loomo down.
Note: As soon as you power Loomo off, it will deactivate its self-balancing ability. Please brace the robot with your hand to ensure it does not topple over.

Alternatively, you can also switch modes by tapping the "Transform" button in the home page of the Loomo mobile app.
Manually pushing Loomo
If you need to manually push Loomo through a complex environment, you can do so by placing your hand directly on the top of Loomo's head. There is a pressure-sensitive area marked by a line on its head - once Loomo senses your hand there, it will emit a beep that signifies you can begin manually pushing Loomo. Please note that you should leave your hand on Loomo's head throughout the duration of pushing.
You can push Loomo forward/backward by simply pushing its head forward/backward, or to either side by twisting its head left/right.
Once you lift your hand off of Loomo's head, it will emit another beep to signify that it has exited manual pushing mode. At this point, please do not try to manually control Loomo until you place your hand on the correct area once again.
Picking Loomo up
We recommend that you pick Loomo up in Grasp the lifting handle on Loomo's back side and lift up with one hand

When Loomo’s battery level drops to 10%, it will send a low battery notification. Loomo will automatically rotate its head and display "Low battery" on its screen. You must tap OK to indicate that you're aware of the low battery situation before the notification can be dismissed.
When Loomo’s battery level drops to 0%, it will emit an alarm. At this state, Loomo cannot be operated anymore.
