FINALLY A REAL ROBOT WITH ITS OWN PLATFORM...
As developers of emotional robots, our daily life is to imagine and give life to a companion with incredible potential, ready to illuminate our homes: BUDDY! Beyond being cute, BUDDY is loaded with electronics, sensors, technological bricks (voice and facial recognition, navigation ...), artificial intelligence. His attributes make him a robot with its own platform that any developer dreams of having to imagine and create new applications. BUDDY is waiting for you!
WANNA BE THE FIRST TO HAVE ACCESS TO BUDDY SDK? ENTER YOUR EMAIL AND YOU'LL GET NOTIFIED WHEN IT’S OUT!
BUDDY HAS A BIG DREAM: TO DEMOCRATIZE THE FIELD OF ROBOTICS.
This is why BUDDY is based on an open based platform.
BUDDY was built with popular development tools (like Arduino, OpenCV and Unity3D) to allow as many developers as possible to collaborate with us. We are also developing a complete API to enable the developer community to start working with BUDDY.
In addition to software, developers will be able to build custom hardware-based solutions that BUDDY can interact with.
Buddy’s SDK includes
Web based C++/ Csharp visual programming tool and tutorials to make easier integration with applications (GIThub).
- A library of animations sounds and vocalizations.
- A set of technological bricks: Emotions, Feel, Move, See, Hear, Speak, Connectivity, Communication, Multimedia
- Unity 3D, a cross-platform game engine developed by Unity Technologies, making it easy for anyone to work with BUDDY - including indie game developers.
- A virtual simulator that gives developers the ability to create and observe more basic animations, timelines and behaviors without a robot.
With BUDDY, the possibilities are endless.
An accessible and powerful IDE
Buddy’s IDE is based on the Unity engine, which supports a wide number of platforms and environments.
It is compatible with applications made with Unity. Easily accessible and highly flexible, it will be appropriate for young learners discovering programming, as well as for experts' developers.
BUDDY’s IDE with Unity and Android is multi-platform, multi-environment and powerful but with a focus on ease of use.
It is the ideal solution for learning and training through an easy graphical interface access but also producing, with advanced mode or through BUDDY’s Development Kits, completely new innovative experiences while increasing productivity.
AN EXTENSIBLE AND COMPLETE TURNKEY SOLUTION
We made the strategic choice to open our robot architecture and use Unity3D IDE as a foundation, so anyone interested in developing applications for robots can get started right away.
