CellRobot is a powerful modular robot accessible to the average consumer. Modular robotics is a complex area because normally exclusive to research labs because each added element adds new movement and functionality. With CellRobot, you can create your own rules. It can be assembled into any form imaginable and programmed to do just about anything. CellRobot eliminates the restrictions of other robots and opens up a world to be explored. You’re only limited by your imagination!
How the Modular Robot works
CellRobot is made up of single cells that build functioning robots when combined. The Heart is at the core of the formation and controls all the operations. It is Bluetooth enabled to connect to smartphones or tablets via app. All modular cells connect through a simple twisting snap on action. Each cell creates shape and movement. A wide-angle lens camera gives your robot 30fps, 640×480 vision that sends photos to your device directly. Add wheels for 360 degree motion at 5 inches per second, or use a mount to hold the robot in place.
The mobile app includes an extensive library of sample builds which guide you through the process of creating a modular robot. The app detects your robot and tells you which cells to attach to which joints. Refresh for live feedback. When you’re finished, you can control your robot with pre-programmed movements.
For more advanced functionality, Custom Mode detects the position of each cell unit and allows you to set specific parameters for how each unit will move. You have the power to create complex and specific movements and save them for later access or sharing.
