At its core is a powerful Compute Module 4, controlling the robot and allowing for reprogramming with custom code over a web browser – although you can also plug it into a monitor (or go a VNC route) if you want and program it the old-fashioned way. There are several bits of example code that illustrate the impressive features of the robot, such as facial recognition with the inbuilt camera, remote control, and more. There’s a full breakdown of the Python commands on the quite detailed documentation, and it even has a block code editor for people not quite up to speed on Python.
It’s definitely a very well put together product, although it’s not the most stable looking robot we’ve ever seen. The price is also a little eyewatering, but we think the tech inside justifies it, especially if you’re looking for a more advanced bit of kit.
A very impressive robot kit that while fine for beginners may be better suited to those already into robotics due to the price.
