What is a Robokind?
The Robokind platform consists of a humanoid robotic body combined with an expressive head. These robots can walk, talk and show emotions in the same way a human can.
Thanks to their expressive faces that use Hanson’s patented Frubber skins, the robots can better communicate with humans and get a message through more effectively via the use of complex facial expressions. These robots also have plenty of degrees of freedom that allow them to walk, interact with object and even play soccer. The video below summarizes their capabilities, available options, and describes their possible use.
These humanoids are mainly intended for research and education (at least initially) and are available in a wide variety of configurations. They also include open-source software that allows for the development of complex robot behaviours.
You can find all available Robokind options at RobotShop and get started on your research today. We are eager to see these robots perform in the wild.
