Developers, engineers and hobbyists looking for an affordable real-time, depth sensing, artificial intelligent platform might be interested in the Oak D Lite which has already raised over $600,000 on Kickstarter thanks to over 5200 backers with still 22 days remaining. The Oak D Lite has been specifically designed to bring the powers of spatial AI to a price point necessary to unlock all sorts of applications.
Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the interesting project from roughly $79 or £58 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 46% off the recommended retail price, while the Kickstarter crowd funding is under way.

“3D object detection is what humans do. We know where objects are – and where they are in physical space. It’s why we can pick up a coffee cup, or catch a ball. Get the pose of objects in yaw, pitch and role – in addition to where they are in physical space. 3D depth information that is semantically labeled per pixel. This allows your robot to stay on the sidewalk, or know when there’s some object in your path.”
