    Lifetime Digital Dream Labs Membership

    This license, for up to five robots, is for the lifetime of your robot and grants you exclusive beta access (i.e. you get updates before everyone else) to all of the latest features and premium services!

    Many of you have asked us to put this into simple terms: this is server access, regular updates - period.

    This pledge level is in response to feedback that requested we make a tier dedicated to less tech savvy users, but ones who still want the latest tech we produce as soon as possible.

    Included in this pledge are updates we have for the Python SDK and audio/mic features we will release later this year. Five licenses, non-transferable.

    Also included is a lifetime 20% discount off all of Digital Dream Labs products.

    Vector's Escape Pod License!

    The Escape Pod will allow Vector to function without any external servers. The user will be able to bypass the current app and use other apps that the community may generate.

    Many of you have asked for us to put this in a simple description: this is an insurance policy if we go under. You won't need us or anyone anymore. This is also good for the hobbyists who want to hop off our server and use their own infrastructure, server, etc.

    This level is in response to users who are concerned that server access would discontinue in the future.

    This, if activated, will make Vector more Cozmo-like, much more dependent on the app from the phone. Vector would retain his AI-like behavior when he is not connected to Wifi. It will not be simple to go back to a 'normal' Vector if you choose this option and active this update.

    Lifetime membership to Digital Dream Labs included.

    20% off any future Digital Dream Labs products.

    Vector's Open Source Development Kit!

    A lifetime license to develop Vector with your own features!

    To borrow Android terminology, this would allow the user to "flash a custom ROM" on Vector. Community developers can then build what they want. This is a far deeper experience than a simple SDK.

    This is very different from the "Escape Pod" in that you are developing on top of our operating system. The result will allow Vector more AI-like behavior and should accelerate machine learning.

    Many of you have asked us for a simple explanation: this is for the hardcore hobbyist or user who would like to create their own stuff sell it or sell it back to us to sell to all of our users. Think of this being an "app store" for a robot.

    Lifetime membership to Digital Dream Labs included.
