… Canadian EZ-Robot is the first to the gate with 2013 Christmas gifts: 3 modular robot kits and a software interface using simple “drag and drop” methods to make teaching the robot behaviors and commands simple and intuitive. Prices start at $219 and the JD humanoid-looking robot goes for $469.
Cute video shows all three new robot toys and the EZ-Builder software.
… DJ Sures is the inventor and company CEO. He’s the Canadian roboticist who gained fame from his 2011 YouTube video about how to turn a Wall-E toy into a functioning robot. He’s developed quite a community: 116 posts each day to the forum; residents in 118 countries; 2.1 million views of EZ-Robot YouTube videos.
… Included with the software is the ability to share apps with other EZ-Robot owners through the cloud.
