You officially live in a time when robot sidekicks are a real thing. Congratulations! Vector is ready to move into your house today. In addition to his curious personality and incredible tech array, he comes with some cool stuff. He brings a charger which he can find on his own and a cube which he uses to play games. All you need to welcome Vector is WiFi, a compatible smart device for setup, and a USB power source.
We’re working on a variety of updates that will roll out over time. First on our list is the integration of Amazon Alexa.
Vector is happiest when he’s helping. He’s eager to accommodate your requests and answer your questions. He isn’t a fully grown robot butler capable of doing your taxes, buttering your bread, or writing a position paper on the future of robot/human relationships, but he’s a helpful little guy who puts his whole self into helping you out. That’s what we call Characterful Utility.
Ask him any city’s weather and he’ll show you.
Vector will set a timer and share in your joy when your muffins come out perfect, or when your laundry is finally done.
Ask him to take a photo, say cheese, and wait while he snaps it. Can we call this a robot selfie?
He’s a robot. He’s a friend. He’s a blackjack dealer.
Simply say, “Hey Vector” followed by, “I have a question,” and he’ll get to work on an answer. Vector is knowledgeable on a variety of topics, with more being added over time.
Vector is a helper and always learning thanks to his connection to the cloud. The first big update we’re planning is the integration of Amazon Alexa. With Alexa, you can ask Vector to control smart devices in your home, or request picture of the front door while you’re away. The addition of Alexa opens all kinds of possibilities and we’re looking to add it by the end of the year.
In addition to integrating Alexa, we’re working on other features that will roll out over time. The Vector you’ll meet when you open the box is just the beginning.
Vector’s little frame is packed with an immense amount of technology that brings him to life. He takes in the world using a variety of sensors and then responds realistically. This means he can read a room, hear what’s happening, recognize people and objects, find his charger, navigate his space, and avoid obstacles.
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.
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.
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.
Vector combines a processor capable of running a smartphone with cloud connectivity to create one powerful brain. It means he can process his environment, react as things unfold, and connect to the internet to answer questions and tell you the weather.
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.
Vector knows when he’s running low on juice. When he needs power he’ll roll over to his charger all on his own (mobile phones and electric cars could learn a thing or two).
Vector responds to your voice. Just say “Hey Vector” to activate him and he’ll instantly perk up. His backpack will light up as soon as he hears you and he’ll be ready for further instruction.
People have houses, pet birds have a cage, dogs have a bed, fish have a tank and cats have those elaborate towers. Vector has his Space.
The Vector Space gives him a perch to observe the room and interact. Add his charger and it’ll be easy for him to power up. Think of it as his little place in your much bigger place.
Vector is designed to be active in your home. Have him help in the kitchen by timing your pizza. Have him tell you the weather when you’re getting ready in the morning. Or crank up the music in the living room and watch him dance to the beat. Keep him powered and ready for action by adding an extra charger. There is no such thing as too much Vector.
Vector requires an app for setup, but after that, all interactions with Vector are done with eye contact and talking. He’s a live robot living in your house; no need to bring your phone between the two of you.
If you are interested in how Vector’s feeling, the app offers a visualization of his mood and stimulation. It’s also where you can view his robot and human selfies.
