This robot project seems very ambitious, too ambitious perhaps. The principle of this robot is revolutionary: it consists of multiple spherical modules that give it the ability to change form and function of the task at hand. The Chinese startup KEYi Technology Inc. that is at the origin of the project has failed to convince investors on Kickstarter, but the project continues. The CellRobot was present on these 2016 and it should be marketed this year.
KEYi Technology engineers are working on modules articulated cell, camera, wheel, lamp or even connector. A “heart” module provides all power given that each articulated cell has its own MCU (Microprogrammed Control Unit), set all the robot moves like a snake or a primate, as shown in the promotional video released by the startup must be a tricky… Chinese puzzle.
