Vector - The Good Robot.

The robot who hangs out and helps out. 

Alive and aware - Vector's little frame is packed with an immense amount of technology that brings him to life. He takes in the world using a variety of sensors and the responds realistically. This means he can read a room, hear what's happening, recognize people and objects, find his charger, navigate his space, and avoid obstacles. 

Vector knows what's going on.
He can SEE - Vector uses an HD camera to see the world. Using computer vision, he can identify people, see and remember faces, and navigate his space without bumping into things.

He can HEAR - Vector has a powerful four-microphone array for directional hearing. When you sit down next to him, he's ready to take direction. And if there is a loud noise, he'll be just as startled as you.

He can FEEL - Vector has touch sensors and an accelerometer so he knows when he's being touched and moved. You can pet him and he'll relax, but try not to shake him.

He can THINK - Vector combines a processor capable of running smartphone with cloud connectivity to create one powerful brain. It means he can process his environment, react as things unfold, and connect to the internet to answer questions and tell you the weather.

He can COMMUNICATE - Vector has a unique voice made of hundreds of synthesized sounds to create a language all his own. When you ask Vector a question, he utilizes a custom text-to speech voice to speak directly to you.

He can SELF-CHARGE - Vector knows when he's running low on juice. When he needs power he'll roll over to his charger all on his own (mobile phones and electric cars could lear a thing or two).

"Hey Vector!" - Vector responds to your voice. Just say "Hey Vector" to activate him and he'll instantly perk up. His backpack will light up as soon as he hears you and he'll be ready for further instruction.

A Helpful Character - Vector is happiest when he's helping. He's eager to accommodate your requests and answer your questions. He does it with built-in utility and an optional integration with Amazon Alexa-coming soon. This integration will give Vector the home  connecting power of Alexa plus the endless amount of skills constantly being developed. He isn't a fully grown robot butler capable of doing your taxes, buttering your bread, or writing a position paper on the future of robot/human relationships, but he's a helpful little guy who puts his whole self into helping you out.

How can Vector help? 
Weather: Ask him any city's weather and he'll show you.
Timer: Vector will set a timer and share in your joy when your muffins come out perfect, or when your laundry is finally done.
Take a photo: Ask him to take a photo, say cheese and wait while he snaps it. Can we call this a robot selfie?
Blackjack:  He's a robot. He's a friend. He's a blackjack dealer.

Ask Vector a question. He'll get you an answer - Simply say, "Hey Vector" followed by, "I have a question", and he'll get to work on an answer. Vector is knowledgeable on a variety to topics, with more being added over time.

Here is a sampling of the things you can ask him:
Unit Conversion: How many ounces are in a cup?
Word Definition: What is the definition of “awesome”?
Equation Solver: What is the square root of 144?
Nutrition: How much vitamin A is in an apple?
Pop Culture: Who is Madonna?
Sports: Who won the World Series?
