Budgee The Robot That Is Rocking The World, Is Now Appearing In Homes Near You

Budgee, the Friendly Robot that Follows You and Carries Your Things is now being shipped to consumers and appearing in households all over the world.

WALL, N.J., Dec. 4, 2015 -- Consumers throughout the world are excitedly receiving the initial shipments of the world's first robot designed to operate within the family home, work and play environments. Five Elements Robotics announces the official launch of Budgee the Friendly Robot that Follows You and Carries Your Things. The concept for Budgee was born in 2013 when the company created their first prototype of Budgee which debuted at the RoboBusiness Conference in Santa Clara, CA that year. At that time and at every event since where successive prototypes have debuted, Budgee has received an overwhelming response from the media and excited consumers.


Budgee is a robot that will follow its owner via a transceiver that the owner carries or wears. Budgee can carry up to 50lbs, yet it is lightweight (weighing only 22lbs) and portable (Budgee folds up for easy transportation and storage). Budgee is the first robot of its kind to be available to the general public and is among the first robots to usher in the era of robotics. As such, Budgee won the Gold American Business Award for Most Innovative Product, 2015 and the Gold Award for New Product in Consumer Electronics, in July of this year.

"As we deliver the robots to our pre-ordered customers we are working closely with them to correct any issues that arise as the robots are introduced to new environments and scenarios in the consumers world, that are not possible to replicate in our lab or on the street", says Five Elements Robotic's CEO Wendy Roberts. "We are finding that people are coming up with innovative ways to use the robots that we hadn't considered when we were originally developing Budgee. But we are happy and excited to support our customers as they integrate this amazing innovation to enhance and improve their lives."

"In the next few months Five Elements Robotics plans to donate several robots to disabled veterans and others whose stories have touched our hearts and who are in need of Budgee's assistance and companionship." says Roberts.

Budgee is now available at www.5erobotics.com for $1599.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
