A new programmable spider robot has been unveiled this week in the form of the Xpider which is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and can be controlled by the integrated neural network.
Check out the video below to learn more about Xpider and how it can be programmed using Arduino or using the powerful Intel Curie neural network inside.
Xpider is the smallest programmable spider robot in the world. It’s a neural network-powered spider robot that fits in the palm of your hand. It measures only 3.4-inch in diameter and weights only 5.3 oz. You can easily place it on your desk and play with it anytime you want.
– Camera Integrated, you can see the world in different perspective.
– Programmable, it can be program with easy to perform all sort of robotic tasks.
– Navigate with AR, point and click at object on screen and see Xpider navigate to it automatically.
– 3D printable, you can easily modify and to create your own version by printing a different 3D model!
– Neural network support, it can also be trained thanks to the powerful Intel Curie neural network inside it.
The integrated camera gives an entirely different view of the world. You see what Xpider see on your smartphone or tablet. Xpider can be controlled from the phone and give you an adventure of the familiar space in entirely different view. We developed a surface approximate navigation system to make it easy to navigate Xpider around. Combine with AR; it surely makes moving Xpider around a lot of fun!
