Amigo One modular robot with omni wheels launched on Kickstarter on 30th Apr, 2019

Robotics company Amigo Robotics announced that it launched a new home interactive robot, Amigo One, on April 30, 2019. This is an intelligent robot for home entertainment and educational scenes. Currently, the company is launching crowdfunding on Kickstarter, offering special discounts to early bird supporters.

“We believe that robots will enter the daily life of thousands of families in the near future, and we will help to accelerate the progress in an imaginative way.” A spokesman from Amigo Robotics introduced the creative robot. „Decomposing the robot and selling it in a modular form will greatly reduce the barrier to enter into the family life. First of all, you can get an interactive and versatile robot chassis at a very low price. Then Amigo Robotics will continue to develop different function modules that fit into the robot chassis, such as camera module, voice interaction module, projector module, robotic arm module, and even sweeping robot module, etc. Users can purchase different modules as needed to equip different functions.“

In addition, the Amigo One uses four omnidirectional wheels to move the robot chassis flexibly which will enhance the entertainment. At the same time, multiple Amigo One robots can build multiplayer competitive game scenes, providing a good parent-child entertainment. In addition to being a home entertainment robot, it can be connected to a computer for visual robot programming, providing an interesting way to develop kids‘ programming skills.

At this stage, Amigo Robotics already designed a slick and cute robot chassis with omnidirectional wheels and LED display module which is compatible for the Amigo One chassis. In order to give users the flexibility to control the Amigo One, we have deliberately delivered a joystick. At the same time, Amigo Robotics offers a special price of 79 Singapore dollars (about 59 US dollars) for early bird supporters. I hope that all supporters will continue to follow us on the new modules developed by Amigo Robotics. I believe these new modules will bring more new surprises to users and supporters!

Meet Hundreds of Robots in Motion: PingPong

Build any robot!  Create every motion!

A new paradigm of easy, fun, affordable and super-extensible robot platform

Robot Factory developed an unique singular module based robot platform called PingPong, which can create hundreds of robots with an easy assembly and provide an opportunity to enjoy fun activities at an affordable price.

Many car shaped robots are capable of driving, crawling or walking robots are usually expensive and complicated to make. It also takes up a lot of time to assemble. Everything starts from the idea of creating a robot platform with huge extensibilities, easy operations and inexpensive prices. Robot Factory presents a new paradigm in the history of robotics toy, PingPong: a single module based robot platform.

PingPong is a single modular robot platform. Each Cube has BLE 5.0 CPU, battery, motor and sensors. By combining Cubes and Links, the user is able to build any robot model they want within several minutes. Robot Factory solved many technical problems to bring this innovative platform, making it possible to construct running, crawling and walking robots with a single module. Other than synchronization, group assembly and charging problems, the company took care of PinPong Cube grouping issues as well. On top of that, velocity and absolute angle motor control technology became available; older versions of smartphones had great compatibility; smart devices and IR remote controllers can be used to move the robots simultaneously. In addition, controlling hundreds of Cubes with a single device is now possible, utilizing successive Bluetooth networking technology. As a result, an easy, fun, new robot platform finally came into light at affordable prices and unlimited extensibility. Robot Factory strives to make PingPong a new standard in robot entertainment, SW education and the makers market.
