See the new EB prototype in these videos:
ElderBots was chosen as one of 19 semifinalists in a field of 111 applicants for the UpPrize.
…. (formerly known as Romibo). Here’s a sneak preview of EB’s new architecture- the primary change is the replacement of the mechanical eyes with a smart phone, which opens up many new possibilities for EB’s functionalities.
ElderBots is pleased to welcome Dr. Cetin Merlici, a Senior Robotics Engineer at the National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC) of the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University. Cetin is upgrading “Romibo 1.0” and planning “Romibo 2.0”. We are excited to have him aboard, and look forward to the improvements to the robot that he has in the works.
Suvir took a little trip to give a presentation at HP their national headquarters in Palo Alto about his idea about “How the U.S. government learned it could save $234 million on toner.”
“While I was there, I had a chance to make a presentation to a team of engineers about my science projects. You would be happy to know that I talked about the ElderBots project a bit and the audience was really interested!”
So, riding on Suvir’s coattails, we’re now “national” along with him.
Finally finished the face tracking app. Using the iPhone’s frontal camera, Romibo’s eyes move based on where you are. It blinks too!
