Alpha 2, the First Humanoid Robot for the Family!
Organized by: James Chow
Alpha 2, the World's First Humanoid Robot for the Family. Intelligent, Interactive and Expandable! The Robot We've Always Dreamed of is Almost Here. Technology is all around us, but what happened to the robots we dreamed of as kids? The ones who could be our friends and members of our family. The robots who were as smart as our smart phone, but could walk and talk and learn and engage with us, in a way no smart phone ever could. We think Alpha 2 could finally be that robot, and with your support, we can make Alpha 2 a reality. Share Dreams, Share the Alpha 2 Campaign. In a world filled with technology, we have all been looking for something more. The robots we’ve dreamed of since we were kids could be our friends and members of our family. At UBTECH, it’s our mission to make these dreams come true. That’s why we build humanoid robots, like Alpha 2. We have a proven track record of bringing innovative technologies to market and we also expect more and more developers to join us for robotic technology innovation. We have reached a $1M stretch goal! We will send 10 free Alpha 2s to robotic research institutions and developers worldwide. Please share this dream with your friends and family. You do not need to back us with money- One click/share (left icons of the video) may help more dreams of robots come true! “The Alpha 2 isn’t just nimble, it’s quite smart as well.” Andrew Tarantola, Engadget “Unlike some other companion robots set to hit the market, such as Jibo and Buddy, Alpha 2 actually has legs to move around.” Steve Crowe, Robotics Trends “This friendly little robot will read stories to your kids, and teach you yoga.” Andy Boxall, Digital Trends “Meet Alpha 2, the humanoid robot that can pretty much do anything around the house.” Molly Brown, GeekWire “Alpha 2 has a similar design to many other hobby-class humanoids, but two things stand out: its potential for social interaction, and its extremely low cost.” Evan Ackerman, IEEE Spectrum What Can Alpha 2 Do?
