Sopo Ezb Powered Robot

Just saw the news article on the new Sopo Robot that is powered by ez robot... Congrats DJ and ez robot!... I assume this is the first of many for you guys.... I even went to their weside and in their download section is ez builder program files....

Who's gonna be first and preorder ?

I'm with Richard and second the congrats. You guys must be pleased with that :). Gotta love the disco ball. Pretty cool. Party on dudes. *cool*

They have done the EZ-B v4 proud.
@DJ... Hmmmm, I think we have a new idea... An ez robot fridge (full of beer of course).... Everyone needs an ez robot powered appliance, c'mon...:D

This is big, though.... I knew you guys were leasing the technology out... This is the first I have seen of a 3rd party using ez robot tech to front their product... You have opened the door for small upstarts to start businesses (where they couldn't before due to technology hurdles) using your EZ Robot platform....
they chould give this robot to anthony.he will look and work alot better.hehe
@Nomad.... Look better, yes... But even Anthony would be the first to admit that he doesn't like the programming aspect of Robotics. His skills lie in 3d design and printing. I absolutely mean no offence to Anthony, because Anthony does alright with ARC... But these guys have a pretty good grasp of ARC and programming....

I'll say this, maybe Anthony should design for them and they do the programming.... That would be a good match of skills in my opinion....:)
Pretty impressive. I momentarily choked on the price until I realized that is really just 2 Rolis, and 1/3 the price Sony used to charge for the fun, but useless Aibo.

I would like to maybe see better servos in the head (pan and tilt) as it seems a bit floppy... I actually do like the overall design... However, I would still like to see Sopo with a little better of a finished look...
I think this robot looks terrible.I have seen far better designs from EZB community. Seems to be very wobbly both for head and body motion.It reminds me of the Androbots and how they would wobble.
Remember, it's a prototype and built on a budget. With additional funding, they will be shipping a much more refined product.

Does it inspire you to build an ezrobot product as well?:)
@rb550f ... I wouldn't pass judgement on these guys so quick.... Sure their robot needs a bit of polishing and I am sure the production model will reflect that... I have download some of there code for their bot and they really know what they are doing. Their scripting is very good.... I am not afraid to say some of it put's mine to shame.... I learn from guys like this so I for one am looking forward to seeing what they accomplish with Sopo...
Richard R,
Thanks for sharing this find.
I give them credit for building a robot, other then a toy robot.
I agree it will updated.
It utilizes EZB4, and can offer user programing
What kind of code puts yours to shame?

Nice. I recognize the Sopo, Its body is a miniature version of the original "bob" Androbot series from the Norlan Research days back in the 1980's. I've always admired that design and had thought about building my own version of this.
Congtratz Dj.. I just saw this bot at CES 2015, I'm always impressed by the ezb4 but this bot didn't impress me.. reminded me of somthing from a B rated SciFi movie.. in the 80's
