and open source robot!
As we enter this new era of robotics, importance needs to be placed on openness and sharing; allowing as many people as possible to participate in revolution.
Augmented reality and virtual reality products allow us to interact with a virtual world but how do we bring the virtual world into our world and let it interact with all that’s around it?
WANNA BE THE FIRST TO HAVE ACCESS TO BUDDY API? ENTER YOUR EMAIL AND YOU'LL GET NOTIFIED WHEN IT’S OUT!
BUDDY has a big dream: to democratize the field of robotics.
This is why BUDDY is based on an open-source platform.
BUDDY was purposely built with popular development tools (like Arduino, OpenCV and Unity3D) to allow as many developers as possible to collaborate with us. We are also developing a complete API to enable the developer community to start working with BUDDY.
In addition to software, developers will be able to build custom hardware based solutions that BUDDY can interact with.
Anyone who purchased the BUDDY Developer Edition is enrolled in the BUDDY Developer Program, which provides early access BUDDY’s SDK, technical support, 3D simulator and access to the BUDDY community.
Buddy’s SDK includes
- Web based C++/ Csharp visual programming tool and tutorials to make easier integration with applications (GIThub).
- A library of animations, sounds and vocalizations.
- Text-to-speech tool for BUDDY’s voice.
- Unity 3D, a cross-platform game engine developed by Unity Technologies, making it easy for anyone to work with BUDDY - including indie game developers.
- A virtual simulator that gives developers the ability to create and observe more basic animations, timelines and behaviors without a robot.
With BUDDY, the possibilities are endless.
An accessible and powerful IDE
Buddy’s IDE is based on the Unity engine, which supports a wide number of platforms and environments.
It is compatible with applications made with Unity. Easily accessible and highly flexible, it will be appropriate for young learners discovering programming, and will be more able to perceive in real time, the material effects resulting from these actions.
Buddy’s IDE with Unity and Android is multi-platform, multi-environment and powerful but with a focus on ease of use.
It is the ideal solution for learning and training through an easy graphical interface access but also producing, with advanced mode or through Buddy’s Development Kits, completely new innovative experiences while increasing productivity.
