JJ Robots based in Edinburgh, Scotland have created a fun way to stay in contact with family and friends using their iBoardbot which takes the form of an Internet controlled whiteboard robot that is capable of drawing out anything you send to it.
iBoardbot can draw text and line images and uses a whiteboard marker which can be easily erased automatically by the robot once the message has been delivered and received. Check out the video below to see the iBoardbot in action.
The robot whiteboard system comes complete with its own web app interface allowing you to easily create and send images via the cloud directly to your iBoardbot. Its developers explain a little more about the inspiration and functionality of the kit which is available to back my Kickstarter priced from £129.
The iBoardbot is a robot connected to the internet capable of writing texts and drawing with great precision. Also, it can erase in a quick and effective way. Send to your iBoardbot your information from any part of the world. As it has a multi-user interface you can also play and challenge your kids, use it as a collaborative notice board or as a twitter wall in your shop window. Have fun and enjoy learning how to assemble your iBoardbot!
The iBoardbot is able to reproduce what you remotely draw using its web application from any part of the world and any device: a laptop, a smartphone or a tablet. From a web app that can be shared, the user will find the necessary apps for the control of the board. You will be able to draw, write a text of your choice (even from the other side of the world!) and to access the iBoardbot´s configuration menu . This drawing robot can be used at the same time by as many users as you want.
Jump over to the Kickstarter Crowdfunding website to help the company raise the required £11,000 to help take iBoardbot into production with pledges starting from just £129.
