Mu | Spacebot
Have you ever think about what skill set will be necessary for the future when robots are roaming around people? MU SpaceBot is a DIY kit that put your kids in that future setting. Designed by Morpx, the SpaceBot kit let kids work as interns in the imaginary robotics company “MU Inc” with the mission to design, assemble, and program the freshly released SpaceBot companion robot.
The award winning MU SpaceBot is the first to include Computer Vision and AI in a construction set.
The assembled SpaceBot can work in three modes:
- Greeting: the SpaceBot will greet and interact with any person it sees.
- Music: play cool music on a piece of paper with vision-keyboard technology.
- Programming: kids can program the robot using the scratch interface in the MU Bot app (available in Google Play). A series of free self-following lessons help your kids venture into robot programming step by step. The App can also be used to record custom greeting voices. During building, your kids can learn: Follow the instruction manual. The essential components of an AI robot. How computer vision works. Robot programming via scratch.
