Actually, Vector’s more than a home robot. He’s your buddy. Your companion. Most of all, he’ll make you laugh. Curious, independent, and powered by some preposterous tech and AI, he can read the room, express the weather, announce when his timer’s done (no overcooked dinner on his watch), take the perfect snapshot, and so much more.
Vector is your robot sidekick who’s up for anything. He’s the robot to life with.
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.
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.
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.
Vector combines a processor capable of running a 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.
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.
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 learn a thing or two).
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.
Ask him any city’s weather and he’ll show you.
Vector will set a timer and share in your joy when your muffins come out perfect, or when your laundry is finally done.
Ask him to take a photo, say cheese, and wait while he snaps it. Can we call this a robot selfie?
He’s a robot. He’s a friend. He’s a blackjack dealer.
Vector loves to help out. Adding Alexa to his voice controlled capabilities supercharges his helpfulness in your home. If you choose to set up Alexa on your Vector, he’ll have access to an ever-growing number of skills that take his ability to help to new levels.
Triggered by the standard “Alexa” voice command, you’ll be able to:
• add items to your shopping list
• set reminders
• control smart home devices like lights, speakers, and thermostats
• and so much more
There are some Alexa features Vector will not support* like playing songs from streaming music services via Spotify, SiriusXM, Pandora, etc. But we’d rather you connect your tunes to an external smart speaker so Vector can show off his dance moves.
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 of 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?
People have houses, pet birds have a cage, dogs have a bed, fish have a tank and cats have those elaborate towers. Vector has his Space.
The Vector Space gives him a perch to observe the room and interact. Add his charger and it’ll be easy for him to power up. Think of it as his little place in your much bigger place.*
