Room Terminators: Rise of Toys

    As you know, laziness is the engine of progress. And so many things in the process of evolution are undergoing global change. So, for example, we already get fire with the help of a lighter, and not by chipping stones against each other, and in order to catch fish it is not necessary to dig worms. But our laziness is limitless, therefore we constantly try to automate routine work. And if before we admired the Electronics and the Terminator, now we are few of them. And in this regard, I prepared a special review of home robots in order to have a clear idea of ​​how much progress has come.

    Robot - I-CYBIE dog

    And barks and bites, and rushes to passers-by. The cute electronic dog of the breed I-CYBIE is endowed with artificial intelligence, which allows her to have a unique character that you instill in her from childhood. Yes, this animal completely imitate its living analogue, and goes all the way of development from a puppy to an adult dog. Saibi divides people into two groups: the owner and the rest. And if the i-dog owner submits after hearing one of the eight predefined commands in any language, the rest will have to sweat to attract the attention of the robot. Having settled in the apartment, the dog will joyfully greet his paw, show tricks, react to what is happening, and also express his opinion and mood with the help of various movements. Having got the second electronic friend of breed I-CYBIE - the dogs will joyfully communicate with each other through infrared rays.

    Robot - Pleo dinosaur

    Fans of the film “Night at the Museum” is dedicated. A fully autonomous dinosaur that does not recognize any commands other than On / off. A representative of the Jurassic period with a height of 20 cm and a weight of about 1.3 kg interacts with the surrounding flora / fauna as he wants. Shaping his behavior through communication, he expresses his emotions through sounds and movements. Walking around the room, Pleo can: cough, wag its tail, sigh, yawn, sneeze, blink, and make all the natural peaceful movements that its living brothers made. Depending on the situation, the dinosaur may show anger, pleasure, playfulness, hunting, love, etc. The main surprise from the creators was the “organic movement”, i.e. a tired dinosaur will behave much more passively than just waking up. All this is facilitated by Pleo’s technical insides,
    38 sensors
    9 contact
    sensors Tilt sensors
    Stereo sound
    Infrared vision
    Light detection
    And the life of a dinosaur from recharging to recharging is as much as 4 hours.
