About

Finally, a robot worth having …The XLR-ONE Personal Robot Companion!   

The XLR-ONE is a unique product in the robotics marketplace.

 The XLR-ONE Robot is a sleek and stylish 30" EZ-Robot powered robotic platform reminiscent of the robots we grew up watching in the movies. The XLR-ONE has a finished, professional design which trumps the common “erector set” unfinished look normally found in similar robots. No exposed wires or the highly inflated price tags!

The XLR-ONE is the Droid you’ve been looking for!

The XLR-ONE features: · 

*  Classic Sci-Fi design. ·

* Full motion robot arms with 5 points of movement

Claws open and close for grabbing and holding objects  

* Wrist, elbow, and shoulder have 180 degrees of motion  

* Head has 180 degrees of horizontal motion and 100 degrees of up down motion.

 The XLR-ONE's eye gives the XLR-ONE the gift of sight. The robot is equipped with an EZ-Robot WiFi Camera, powered directly by the EZ-B v4 WiFi Robot Controller.

 The XLR-ONE's drive train is powered by 4 HD Continuous High Torque Robot servos, which provide plenty of power to move your robot with ease.  

The XLR-ONE has a utility backpack that stores the EZ-Robot controller and provides additional battery expansion capacity.  

XLR-ONE utilizes a custom XLR-ONE themed EZ-Builder app that allows you to control the robot via your Android or IOS mobile device.  

The App: The XLR-ONE custom themed control app utilizes all of the functions of the robot right out of the box right on your mobile device  

The robot is fully expandable via EZ-Builders simple drag and drop interface.  

In addition to XLR-ONE app you can control the XLR-ONE via PC and voice commands.  

 Entitlement to all future officially sponsored software updates for free.

This robot series has so many uses. It’s a great platform for learning about robotics provides a platform for watching your ideas come to life.

The XLR-ONE a great teaching aid for children. Its speech recognition and object recognition make it easy for interacting with children. By utilizing the on board camera, I created a Math Quiz script using QR coded flash cards. My son holds up the random QR flash cards and the XLR-ONE scans and reads the equation to him. My son responds by speaking the answer to the robot, which then determines if the answer is right or wrong, and responds accordingly. The possibilities are almost endless.

In addition to the endless educational and hobby uses,  

 You can use the XLR-ONE as a D.J. or M.C. at parties.  

 You can use the XLR-ONE as a Home Security Droid.  

 You can also control the XLR-ONE via the MYO motion control band

These are just a few of the uses you get with the XLR-ONE.

Our Quality Guarantee covers all of the XLR-ONE printed parts. If a parts breaks from normal use, just send us a photo via email and we will send you a replacement part free of charge for 2 years from the date of purchase.

 XLR-ONE's kickstarter has 3 main purposes

1.)     Funding the expansion of the 3D printing farm. a. We currently are running on 2 Makerbot Replicator 2's which are printing 24/7. Part of the funding we will purchase additional printers to grow the printing farm. This will allow us to increase production capacity, and shorten wait times for product delivery. 

2.)     Another portion of the funding is allocated for purchasing the raw materials needed to fulfill the order requests.

3.)     The remaining balance will cover the misc. costs involved, including S&H. The XLR-ONE has completed the initial prototype phase, has been tested thoroughly, and is now ready for production. Once our funding goal is reached, production will begin and we will begin shipping XLR-ONES as early as May 2015! Once funded and manufacturing has begun, we will then begin working a feature packed software update which introduces motion sensing wristbands, virtual reality headsets, and Twitter integration and much more. We thank everyone who has helped up in our quest to make High Quality, Hi-Tech, professional grade robots. All at a price point below $1000!

Risks and challenges

At this point in time I see no risks other than possible delay due to mechanical problem with a printer. The XLR-ONE design is proven and completed and tested. All that remains is fulfilling orders.
