A new programmable robot which has just won the CES 2019 Best of Innovation Award in the Robotics and Drone category has now launched via Kickstarter and is now available to back with earlybird pledges available from $99 or roughly £78. If all goes well and the campaign raises the required $50,000 over the next 60 days the Zümi programmable robot will start shipping out to backers during May 2019.
Designed to provide a friendly and affordable self driving car kit complete with artificial intelligence, the Zümi robot can identify objects, make decisions and recognise hand gestures to follow your instructions. The development team behind Zümi explain more about their creation and its features
“Whether you use Amazon Alexa, own a Tesla, play mobile games, or use Google Maps, artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere. Like coding, learning how AI works will soon become an integral skill in tomorrow’s workforce. Zümi is here to help make something that’s normally complicated into something approachable.
Zümi is the first educational self-driving car kit that will teach you about the concept of artificial intelligence and self-driving car technology in a fun and engaging way. With our friendly step-by-step tutorials, you will be able to train her on how to navigate through a miniature map in less than an hour. The more she learns, the better she’ll get.”
