A ROBOTICS PLATFORM FOR CREATORS
Where’s the robot from TV and Movies that we were promised? The team at Brave New World is developing a new robotics platform for the home consumer market that intends to fix that. Our goal is to take interaction between humans and robots to the next level. This platform combines a physical robot with mixed reality for an entirely new experience. The 12-inch robot can be re-programmed and fits a variety of removable shells – enabling developers to create a myriad of products on one platform.
The robot will have computer vision and machine learning capabilities that allow it to see you, hear you, and speak back to you.
A MIXED REALITY GAME EXPERIENCE
By combining Mixed Reality on mobile phones with the LegendBot you can play a truly unique game. Imagine a board game with a robot host that guides you through the gameplay. Then add an injection of Mixed Reality and the board game leaps off the table and into new dimensions.
The LegendBot can easily be repurposed by sliding off one outer shell and replacing it with another. One minute you have a talking teddy bear and the next you have R2D2. Each shell comes with a new app for your phone, creating a brand-new experience every time.
There are many robotic toys available for the consumer home market. Most are pretty limited in their ability to interact with the consumer. Brave New World is creating a next gen robot that will be able to see and hear users and respond back to them. Leading edge technologies like computer vision and machine learning were hugely expensive just a few years ago. These technologies are now more mature are readily available – the main challenge for the Brave New World team is to seamlessly integrate these functions together.
