At the Dublin Web Summit this week Liam Casey from PCH International caused a sensation when he brought a little robot on stage called Autom, which he intends to manufacture in droves as part of a partnership with its creators Intuitive Automata.
The robot, which helps its owners to keep fit, learns about each user it interacts with them – no two conversations are alike.
Autom is available to pre-order online for a special introductory price of US$199 and a US$19 monthly subscription for a minimum of one year. Manufacture and distribution of the motivational robot has been made possible through a partnership with Irishman Liam Casey’s PCH International.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
