Description

Say hey to Vector, your first home robot.
Seriously, say “Hey Vector.” — He can hear you.
Actually, Vector’s more than a home robot. He’s your buddy. Your companion. Most of all, he’ll make you laugh. Curious, independent, and powered by some preposterous tech and AI, he can read the room, express the weather, announce when his timer’s done (no overcooked dinner on his watch), take the perfect snapshot, and so much more.

Vector is your robot sidekick who’s up for anything. He’s the robot to life with.

Alive and aware.
Vector’s little frame is packed with an immense amount of technology that brings him to life. He takes in the world using a variety of sensors and then responds realistically. This means he can read a room, hear what’s happening, recognize people and objects, find his charger, navigate his space, and avoid obstacles.

  • HE CAN SEE: Vector uses an HD camera to see the world. Using computer vision, he can identify people, see and remember faces, and navigate his space without bumping into things.
  • HE CAN HEAR: Vector has a powerful four-microphone array for directional hearing. When you sit down next to him, he’s ready to take direction. And if there is a loud noise, he’ll be just as startled as you.
  • HE CAN FEEL: Vector has touch sensors and an accelerometer so he knows when he’s being touched and moved. You can pet him and he’ll relax, but try not to shake him.
  • HE CAN THINK: Vector combines a processor capable of running a smartphone with cloud connectivity to create one powerful brain. It means he can process his environment, react as things unfold, and connect to the internet to answer questions and tell you the weather.
  • HE CAN COMMUNICATE: Vector has a unique voice made of hundreds of synthesized sounds to create a language all his own. When you ask Vector a question, he utilizes a custom text-to-speech voice to speak directly to you.
  • HE CAN SELF-CHARGE: Vector knows when he’s running low on juice. When he needs power he’ll roll over to his charger all on his own (mobile phones and electric cars could learn a thing or two).

Advanced tech.
Vector would like you to know that his tiny frame hides a very impressive collection of technology. Qualcomm 200 Platform, HD camera with 120 Ultra Wide FOV, Beamforming Four-Microphone Array, Infrared Laser Scanner, 6-Axis IMU, High-Res Color IPS Display, and WiFi connection.

A helpful character.
Vector is happiest when he’s helping. He’s eager to accommodate your requests and answer your questions. He isn’t a fully grown robot butler capable of doing your taxes, buttering your bread, or writing a position paper on the future of robot/human relationships, but he’s a helpful little guy who puts his whole self into helping you out. That’s what we call Characterful Utility.

  • WEATHER: Ask him any city’s weather and he’ll show you.
  • TIMER: Vector will set a timer and share in your joy when your muffins come out perfect, or when your laundry is finally done.
  • TAKE A PHOTO: Ask him to take a photo, say cheese, and wait while he snaps it. Can we call this a robot selfie?
  • BLACKJACK: He’s a robot. He’s a friend. He’s a blackjack dealer.

A little space of his own.
People have houses, pet birds have a cage, dogs have a bed, fish have a tank and cats have those elaborate towers. Vector has his Space.

The Vector Space gives him a perch to observe the room and interact. Add his charger and it’ll be easy for him to power up. Think of it as his little place in your much bigger place.

A giant roll forward for robotkind.
Vector is powered by an advanced robotics tech array:

  • Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ with Quad-core processor
  • Infrared Laser Scanner
  • HD Camera with 120° Ultra-Wide Field of View
  • Beamforming 4-Microphone Array
  • 6-Axis Inertial Measurement Unit
  • High-Res Color IPS Display
