The new SCOUT WiFi Robot looks like it was put together in an hour by a Lego enthusiast, doesn’t it? All gangly and knobbly and thoroughly unlike the sleek white Japanese alternatives. But I’m sure in terms of functionality, if not price, it’s a match for any Tokyo Ro. Especially with those two gripping arms and cameras. $8050.00.
An improvement provided with the current model SCOUT is a wrist-mounted camera that greatly facilitates remote manipulation of objects. Optionally, you can choose to have cameras on both wrists, maximizing the robot’s ability to survey its surroundings. With their position coincident to the robot’s gripping digits, the cameras uniquely enable remote users to get an eye on whatever the robot is reaching toward.
