If you ever wanted to create your own gesture controlled robot, you might be interested in a new system called Ziro that will soon be launching over on the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
The DIY Ziro kits are being showcased at this year’s CES 2015 technology show and provide everything you need to create your very own robotic devices as well as providing the ability to control them using gestures.
Watch the video below to learn more about this innovative new robotic kit which will soon be available to back with pledges starting from $200. the development team behind Ziro explain a little more :
Bring your creations to life with our hand-controlled robotics kit! Create your robot out of any material available. Ziro’s modular construction allows you to constantly build and rebuild. Get started using our pre-made kits or assemble your own personal designs.
Ziro is a modular robotics kit made up of individual mechanized motor modules that are controlled by a wireless smart glove. Design and construct your robots out of any material you have available including our pre-made starter kits. Attach the Ziro modules to animate your creations using continuous rotational or hinge movements.
Use the smartphone app to configure the modules using the pre-made programming templates or input your own custom gestures. Control your creations remotely using the Ziro smart glove. Your hand gestures send commands to the modules so that when you move, they move. Connect your robot to the smart glove using a mobile app. You can program gestures to control the robot without any coding!
Ahead of the Indiegogo campaign jump over to the official Ziro website for more details on the robots you will be able to create and how they are controlled using a gesture control glove.
