The first social robot that connects, protects, and interacts with each member of your family... ($699)

 

WaterStrider: Perfect Footage. Confident Landings. Anywhere.

Convert your drone into an all-terrain vehicle. Water, snow, rocks, sand, and other rugged terrain are no match for WaterStrider™... (from $179, ends May 30 2016)

 

Ziro: World's First Hand-controlled Robotics Kit

Ziro lets you design, build, and animate your robotic inventions, control them easily with the lift of a finger or a flick of the wrist. Made for robotics enthusiasts and creative newbies alike, Ziro is the perfect platform for bringing your 3D creations to life... ($199)

 

Brixo - Building Blocks Meet Electricity and IoT

BRIXO's electric bricks are normal sized building blocks that are anything but normal. It's like Lego® on steroids, if steroids also gave you superpowers and taught you new languages. 

Basically, they're bricks that safely conduct electricity and connect to your phone to enable you to do all sorts of cool things with your designs.  And no, you don't need to buy a whole new set, because they're used interchangeably with your favorite building blocks to add an element of interactive awesomeness...

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

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.
