STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is one of the most important skills to acquire to make a major contribution and impact to society for the foreseeable future. In our experience, STEM is best learned with experimentation. Miniature home robots provide a cheap and excellent platform to do STEM experimentation. Our goal is to bring you material which helps you learn STEM by doing experiments. These experiments could be using one of the robots we use, or with software that we provide you.
Meet our robots
So far, we have been targeting three main consumer robots. Chronologically, the first is the Anki Cozmo, which debuted in 2016. That is the white robot with blue eyes in the above picture. Then came Anki Vector, which launched in 2018. The Vector robots are the ones with the black bodies. The Petoi Bittle is the last robot in our series, and was launched in 2020. While the Anki robots have rich software, and can be easily programmed with an SDK, the Bittle robot is a quadruped robot, and is very useful to understand the mechanics of a quadruped robot.
You will get premium and state of the art content discussing the latest in consumer robotics. We regularly read research presented in top tier conferences such as Human Robot Interaction (HRI) and Robot & Human Interactive Communication (ROMAN) and summarize the work.
