Bilibot Is Now Available To Order
Developers, start your engines!
We are excited to announce that the Bilibot is now available for order! We're still ramping up production, but before we start mass production, we are offering a pre-release version, so the hard-core developers out there can get a jump on things. This is a bit like a beta test - we want to get your feedback, and work with you to make the best robot possible.
FeaturesWhen you order a Bilibot you will receive:
- an iRobot Create
- a Kinect, modified to run off of a battery
- all the mounting hardware, wiring and electronics needed to put it all together.
ComputerAs promised, we searched high and low to find the best robot computer for the money. Here is what we chose: An assembled computer, with:
- 3.1 GHz Intel i3 processor
- 4Gb DDR3 RAM
- Ubuntu and ROS pre-installed
The BiliArm is a small, yet powerful robot arm. With a one foot reach, the biliarm can reach objects on the ground, and lift them to 17'' in the air. Unlike many arms available for hobbyists, the BiliArm is not built with servos. Instead, it uses powerful geared motors, and can lift objects weighting up to 3 lbs!
Special Early Developer BonusesIn recognition of your enthusiasm, we are offering our early adopters some special benefits:
Choose your colorWe let you choose what color your bilibot will be! Choices include:
- Red (pictured)
Instead of having "developer edition" engraved on the front of your Bilibot, you can specify your own text to engrave - be it your name, or the name of your robot, or even a catchy phrase. Be creative!
PriceThe Bilibot Developer Edition is available for $1200. We'd like to re-emphasize that this edition is for early adopters - we are still working to optimize costs, to provide you with the cheapest Bilibot possible.
