What about a robot connected to SmartThings?

I’ve been talking about a robot controller capability for a while…

Now, it’s becoming a reality (well, they are planning to deliver this Fall, this needs to be verified!)

See this crowfunding campaign:

Interesting…

In my crowdfunding experiences, most campaigns for a simple hub or watch push 3-12 months at least. I wouldn’t expect this to ship until mid to late 2017 if at all… but it would be neat if it did.

Agreed I think they are very optimistic. They haven’t even posted a real video of the single prototype they have created. The videos they have are all professional actors etc.

The concept sounds great and I will keep watching it but it sure seems like a big bite to chew

Is it just me or does this have scam written all over it?

That thought was definitely running through my head, but who knows right?


#6

The fact that smart bulbs and projectors as a support item just seem weird to me. Less so the bulbs but the projector def seems odd.

They are located in Palo Alto, CA… Probably few blocks from SmartThings HQ… Some people at ST may know them already… Care to chip in?

I’d be amazed by that but would love to hear it - they are a tiny few person team and I am guessing don’t really have an office.

Thank you, but no, thank you. Buying $549 worth of lottery tickets is probably a better bet to get at least some of your money back. :smiley:

LOL at the projector and “powerful 2” woofer and speakers."
