Norway-based Halodi Robotics released a teaser video that shows off the capabilities of Eve, a new household robot that promises the strength & reach of a human, combined with a cloud "brain" that offers a new approach to AI and deep learning.
The first early development kits are expected in late 2017 and the company aims at a $1,500 price target for the final version. You can watch the video clip below, the abilities of Eve definitely look impressive.
Halodi´s vision is to provide a vast number of robots to the mass market. We believe the time is right for Eve, a robot that is affordable for ordinary people, with strength and reach to do useful work. Our concept is that of simplified, but capable and very high quality mechanics paired with a cloud “brain” that enables very advanced data processing, cross learning and continuous upgrading of the functionality.
The concept of the mechanics, with our own very strong Revo1 servo motors and differential joints, means that Eve can be produced for a fraction of the cost of ordinary robots without sacrificing quality or versatility.
