About this project

Roby d'Bear is a robot which will bring kids back from their virtual worlds into reality. Revolutionary step in connecting technology and socialization. Use your knowledge of mobile devices and upgrade it to control a real robot. Roby d'Bear - your connection from virtual reality to real life.  

 

 

 

Kids and adolescents spend most of their time on their mobile phones or other devices, playing all sorts of apps and losing basic social skills. 

Every one of them has his favorite figure or character. Wouldn't it be special if characters from apps could come alive?

We have made that possible and created the robot Roby d'Bear. This is a product, which will upgrade social and virtual skills of younger generations and bring them back a feel for real things. Roby d'Bear is more than a toy. It is a partner that will help you return to the physical contact with people and things.

Description

Functional robot in the form of an attractive bear. Multiple operation modes such as Dance, Karaoke, Voice repeat and Manual control. It is totally controlled via application on your mobile phone or tablet with activated Bluetooth connection. 

 

 

The Robot

Robot which repeats after user in the form of an attractive bear. Suitable for all genders of all ages. You can arrange him in any position you choose. Manual and automatic operation for even more fun. Total control with our brand new application for users of different mobile operating systems.

  

 

 

 

 

 

Home screen

Everything takes place on home screen. First you need to turn on the device and enable Bluetooth connection on your mobile phone or tablet. Open the app and Roby is ready to use. On home screen there are two basic functions and a menu button. You can choose between Play and Manual mode. In Play mode, the robot waits for you to start talking and then repeats after the user in normal voice. In Manual mode, the user can manually control the robot. Movable parts are both arms, head, mouth, eyes and eyelids. 

Functions screen

The second part of brains of Roby d'Bear. All functions are nicely arranged to give user a complete control over possible operation modes. Here you can control the basic settings like speakers and motors or select advanced operation modes for even more fun. Functions such as Dance, Karaoke and Repeat change the operation mode of the Bear. There are also additional functions for setting high or low repeat voice and sliders for changing speaker volume and microphone sensitivity. Robot can be used for number of different functions to bring more fun to all types of users.

Music, hands free calling, docking station and more

Another useful function is an integrated charger for mobile phones. Speaker function enables hands free calls. For more entertaining conversation turn on Dance function. The robot will move his mouth and you get the feeling as you were talking to him. Easiest way to transform your boss into a funny looking bear.

Audio station with alarm 

In addition to all the functions, the device can be also used just as an ordinary audio station for playing music. Powerful speakers and built-in amplifier ensure highest sound quality. 

Wouldn't it be nice if your best friend Roby d'Bear could wake you up?

We have made that possible. Simply set your alarm clock and activate a Bluetooth connection with the device. When an alarm is triggered, Roby will start singing and dancing (depending on your alarm tune) and will wake you up in a friendly manner.

 

 

 

 

Kit model

Roby d'Bear is also available as a kit model. Kit includes all necessary parts to build robot from scratch. Instruction manuals included. 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Development

There are quite a few challenges when developing a new product. We have designed, repaired, re-designed multiple models until we finally found the right one. 

Development includes not only design and construction, but also all other fields of knowledge and expertise such as marketing, sales and production. During that process we have learned more than we first expected. Challenges and problems appeared on every step of the way and we had to overcome them. Finally we have our product ready for launch and we need you to help us realize our dreams.

 

Risks and challenges

Production includes multiple stages. During our development we have gathered contacts and suppliers for all the parts needed. If we successfully conclude this Kickstarter campaign, the production process will begin immediately.
We look forward to inform our contractors and suppliers to begin with production, so we can deliver you our products as soon as possible.
