Say “Hey Vector.” Robot sidekicks are now a reality. Aware and reactive, Vector evolves with regular updates. Start the journey with him now. Alive with personality, he’s excited to see you and reacts to sound, sight, and touch. Always happy to help, he’ll answer questions, take photos for you, set a timer for dinner, and more. Independent and alert, he self-charges, navigates around objects, and avoids edges. Smart and getting smarter, he’s cloud connected for updates to bring new capabilities and features to be a better helper at home.

Vector knows what’s going on.
He can see. Vector uses an HD camera to see the world. Using computer vision, he can identify people, see and remember faces, and navigate his space without bumping into things.
He can think. Vector’s smartphone-level processor and cloud connectivity create one powerful brain.
He can hear. Vector has a powerful four-microphone array for directional hearing. When you sit down next to him, he’s ready to take direction. And if there is a loud noise, he’ll be just as startled as you.
He can communicate. Vector has a unique voice made of hundreds of synthesized sounds to create a language all his own. When you ask Vector a question, he utilizes a custom text-to-speech voice to speak directly to you.
He can feel. Vector has touch sensors and an accelerometer so he knows when he’s being touched and moved. You can pet him and he’ll relax, but try not to shake him.

What’s Inside Vector? AI and advanced robotics: Qualcomm 200 Platform to compute at a smartphone level. Capacitive Touch Sensor to sense being touched and held. Beamforming 4-Microphone Array to recognize natural speech and source. Ultra-Wide HD Camera to detect motion and identify people. 4 Drop Sensors to detect edges and avoid falls. Infrared Laser Scanner to track distance and map environments. 6-Axis Inertial Measurement Unit to know when he’s picked up or moved. High-Res Color IPS Display to convey a wide range of emotions. WiFi-Enabled Cloud Connection to bring new capabilities.

Vector is an updating platform, Cloud connected via Wi-Fi so he’s always learning and updating with new skills and features. The first major free update is coming to Vector Robots this holiday and will include an option to access Alexa voice service.
More than a home robot, Vector is a companion made to help out and hang out.
Powered by AI and advanced robotics, he’s alive with personality and engaged by sight, sound, and touch.
