Overview

The robot is fully compatible with today's smart speaker devices like Google's Home, Amazon's Alexa and even Apple's Siri.

The robot contains 6 axis of motion provided by heavy duty robot Dynamixels and high efficiency PWM servo motors. The robot is built on an aluminum frame for strength and lightweight mobility. The high temperature epoxy shells are designed to be resistant to higher temperature environments. Skins are manufactured with platinum silicone for longevity and endurance. The magnetic and modular design allow for future upgrades.

The robot is designed around a controller. The core components allow for the following abilities:

  • Control via computer, tablet or phone
  • Jaw sync with audio input
  • Voice recognition
  • Voice synthesis
  • On-board camera for vision
  • Facial and object recognition
  • Sensor data reading
  • Object tracking
