If you have ever wanted to own your very own robot that is capable of playing soccer, then you might be interested in a new mini robot created by Petunia Tech, based in Pasadena California.
The WiSoccero soccer playing robot has this week launched via Kickstarter to raise the funds it needs to make the jump into production. Pledges are available from $119 and shipping is expected to take place during June 2017.
WiSoccero is designed to take advantage of the exciting art of robotics by removing all of the struggles involved and adding a little more fun. It helps you enter the world of robots with as little difficulty as possible. You can start by just playing with your friends and travel to incredible areas and learning about robots. You can even create your own amazing robotic projects.
WiSoccero is agile and versatile. Unlike traditional RC Cars, it can move in any direction without any hesitation. It employs a special wheel arrangement and omnidirectional wheels which gives it a lot more freedom in maneuvering. This soccer player robot is capable of kicking and passing the ball. It utilizes an electromechanical part (solenoid) and the necessary electrical drivers. This system is capable of kicking the ball with different levels of force that can be controlled effortlessly.
WiSoccero needs to be powered by 3 Li-ion 18650 cylindrical rechargeable batteries (at least 2200 mAh in capacity) that will last for about 2 hours under normal conditions.
