Spin Master Ltd., a global leader and one of the top five U.S. toy manufacturers has introduced Meccanoid G15 KS, your personal robot at CES 2015 – your personal robot built with the latest Meccano parts.
It is an advanced yet easy to use open source Robotic Building platform, making it accessible to builders covering a broad range of ages and skill sets.
“Simplicity was central to the design and development from day one so we developed three programming options. First, a cool new tech we call “LIM” – Learned Intelligent Movement. Second, a “Ragdoll” Avatar control via an app, and finally and perhaps the most fun of all, Motion capture. All allow someone with no prior experience to program with ease in moments”, said Ben Varadi, EVP & Chief Creative Officer for Spin Master, Ltd.
The robot uses its on board “Mecca Brain” and voice recognition to say thousands of phrases, tell jokes, offer fun facts, play games, initiate conversations and even remember your name and birthday. It is designed specifically for kids 5-14 who are motivated by the challenge of making, creating and discovery.
