About


As a parent, do you ever want to have a super fun smart toy at home to interact with your child? As a student, do you dream of having a programmable robot to let you learn programming easily? As a geek, do you want to have an intelligent housekeeper robot? Now, here it comes. After more than a year of ideation and design, our team finally designed our first product -- Amigo One.

 Amigo One is a programmable omni-wheel modular robot, which can realize graphical programming through USB connected computer, so that children can more easily enter the programming world; Creative omnidirectional wheel design means he can move flexibly in various scenes; At the same time, it has an open interface, which can add modules with different functions to extend its own functions.

Play a competitive game with your kids

 The unique omni-wheel design makes the Amigo One walk more flexible, such as playing an interesting football game, which will surely be very exciting

It can be used to teach children how to program

 Adopt the form of graphic programmable, let the child understand the logic and principle of programming more vividly, let the complex programming become more vivid and interesting

 It can help you find things that fall in the corner

   A low 4.5cm chassis that can be lowered under a sofa, bed or cabinet to retrieve items you've lost in the corner 

 Play with the family pets

   Palm-size design, flexible movement, and interaction with the family pet is particularly interesting 

 Help you deliver small items

 The flat surface on the top, where you can put a lot of small things, to get you a glass of water, that would be a very simple thing to do

 More modules, more functions

   More modules will be created for different functions. Make your own modules and shape your own robot. 

Omni-directional mobile

Driven by four omni-directional movement wheels, the robot is capable of translation and rotation in 8 different directions and of moving on slick floor or carpet. Amigo guarantees climbing ability and a longer product life due to the 1:50 metal teeth reducer motor used in each wheel.

 Modular design

Serial port terminal is extended from Amigo base plate which is equipped with a 7.4V power port above which a module connector is installed for the purpose of connecting different telecommunication modules, thus bestowing Amigo immense ability to expand its function. Serial port is made up of pogo pin which avoids poor contact resulting from shaking.

Modules are independent

A single module has a built-in master control chip, which can connect to the computer independently and make the function you want

 Magnetic connection

In the base plate of Amigo are installed seven strong magnets, three of which in the middle and four other in each corner of the square. These magnets can tightly attach the modules to the portable base plate.

Open interface

A triangle with direction directivity interface, adopts pogopin to fast connection, make the car and the module of communication more convenient quickly

 Direction identification

In the front of Amigo is an LED indicator light. Modularized connection point is designed in the shape of a regular triangle which makes it easy to identify robot’s moving direction.

 Graphical programming

In the tail of Amigo there is a MicroUSB connector to the 8.4V charger which takes two hours to be fully charged. In the future, we will install a wireless charging set whose receiving end can be replaced under the bottom of Amigo for wireless charging. This aims to achieve auto charging in case Amigo is short of power in family cruising.  

 Immediate control

We provide our customers with a handle connected by 2.4G wireless network. Compared to traditional robots, this handle can connect to the robot in any time you want, control its movement and execute the functions of each module. As a result, this robot becomes more children-friendly , free them from cellphones and bring them a game-like experience.

Contracted design

 Simple design, like a work of art with your home environment

In the future, we will design more modules, such as camera module, voice module, navigation module, projection module and so on. They will make Amigo One more powerful, and integrate with your smart home, more convenient for your life!

  • Master chip                      Arduino Mega 2560
  • File Transfer                     USB Cable
  • Ports                                  Micro USB

  • Charging voltage             DC8.4V     
  • Size                                    116mm*116mm*50mm

As a design team of passionate robot fans, we aim to introduce into households cheaper robots of better quality and bring along joy and convenience to their life. At present, we have finished designing the base plate and monitor module but we are in need for fund to manufacture the injection mold of the robot and to assembly the robot. We are debugging such modules as projection, camera, versatile controller. More technology companies and schools are welcome to join us for diversifying our Amigo and bringing users a better robot.

We wish to make a cheaper and better Amigo and introduce it into our life as soon as possible. Without your help, we cannot help more people to access the joy and convenience brought by robots.

Risks and challenges

Like all Kickstarter projects, we will face certain risks and challenges in delivering this product at the quality we demand of ourselves. However, the Amigo team brings with it not only our passion but experience in engineering and manufacturing at scale, and we've made every effort to mitigate these risks for our backers.

With the support of our manufacturing and distribution partners, we are well prepared for the challenges ahead. We promise to be transparent and to keep our backers updated and informed about any issues that may come up and our solutions to such.
