New special Update: Black BUDDY, Fans Encounters & awards
BLACK BUDDY IS FINALLY AVAILABLE
We introduced the all new, black BUDDY for the first time at Unite 2015 in Boston, U.S.A. This is another one of the stretch goals your tremendous support helped us meet during the Indiegogo campaign.
MANY LOCATIONS AND ENCOUNTERS FOR BUDDY
BUDDY has been seeing the world, and September was rich in encounters for him. He returned to both coasts in the U.S. and met many more fans.
UNITE 2015 IN BOSTON (USA)
During three days in Boston, the Blue Frog Robotics’ team introduced BUDDY, the first robot in the world powered by Unity 3D, to the public and thousands of developers who attended this event.
Our engineer, Basil COLLARD, pitched during the Unite conference and explained the features and usages of Unity3D at the heart of BUDDY’s design, and explained the benefits of using the popular platform as the “brain” and interface for BUDDY.
TECHCRUNCH DISRUPT 2015 IN SAN FRANCISCO (USA)
BUDDY and the Blue Frog team spent two days at the extremely popular Techcrunch Disrupt event in San Francisco that brings together tens of thousands of new technology fans from around the world.
ROBOBUSINESS 2015 IN SAN JOSE
Franck de Visme, COO of Blue Frog Robotics, spoke at RoboBusiness in San Jose, as part of a panel focused on “robotics in homes.” He talked about what is required to make robots desirable and useful in everyone’s home, and highlighted the strategies adopted by Blue Frog Robotics and the major challenges that will result from this new robotics revolution.
BUDDY was named best social robot and was a finalist for the world’s best overall robot in the RobotLaunch 2015 global robotics startup competition. Your support and votes helped BUDDY achieve this incredible accomplishment. Thank you all!
