Natsuo Akazawa, CEO at PLENGoer Robotics, explains: “Think of PLEN Cube as your right-hand man (in robot form). We’ve packed a lot into this playful 3-inch powerhouse: a powerful processor, Full-HD camera, display, microphone array and speakers, along with cutting-edge software in facial recognition, speech recognition, and more.”
Visit PLEN Cube’s Kickstarter page to pre-order it, meet the developers, and learn more about the product that is changing our lives.
PLEN Cube boasts a number of breakthrough features:
A HANDS-FREE CAMERA THAT FOLLOWS YOUR MOVEMENTS
No need for a cameraperson. Simply use voice commands to take a photo or video.
PLEN Cube also uses computer vision technology, and can rotate 360 degrees to follow you wherever you go.
Because PLEN Cube is wifi and bluetooth-enabled, you can instantly share photos or videos on social media.
KEEPS YOU INFORMED
PLEN Cube aggregates all your day’s essential info including the weather, schedule, reminders, social media and more.
Use the PLEN Cube mobile app to connect your services. PLEN Cube will keep you informed through its display, movements, sound, or notifications to your mobile device.
ALL YOUR SERVICES AND DEVICES IN ONE PLACE
With PLEN Cube, you can control all your favorite devices via Wifi, Bluetooth and infrared.
You can also connect and consolidate your social media, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
CUSTOMIZE TO YOUR LIFE – FROM MORNING TO NIGHT
Anyone can customize the PLEN Cube using IFTTT, a web-based automation service that allows you to create chains of actions with your favorite web services. PLEN Cube can do everything else a personal assistant bot can do, and also expands the number of triggers (inputs) and actions (outputs) you can use.
Advanced developers can access our open API and take customization to the next level. We’ll also launch a community forum where users can share ideas and collaborate, and PLENGoer can provide further developer information.
Natsu Akazawa, CEO at PLENGoer Robotics; “PLEN cube is more than a robot. It’s an expansive platform. We plan to publish APIs and 3D models, so everyone can be creative. We would like to revolutionize the relationship between humans and robots, and we’re excited to be a part of this revolution with PLEN Cube. We can’t wait to share our vision with the Kickstarter community “.
