Endurance is a Russian robotics startup company that not long ago opened an office in the US (Naples, Florida) and has started to donate their robot DIY SelfieBot for free. With claims that they want to assist young folks, especially students to jump into robotics, Endurance is delivering innovation to high school and colleges.
George Fomitchev – founder of the startup – says that they have turn it intod all source codes and schematics on the market so any student can reproduce the DIY SelfieBot on campus or at home. Endurance tries to manufacture sharing knowledge and experience as easy as possible. Theiridea is to manufacture robots and robotics innovation talked about one of software and mechanical engineers. SelfieBot is a basic (stationary) telepresence robot that can be turn it intod by yourself with preparedtutorials and guidance. DIY SelfieBot is a tool that turns your mobile device into a smart machine transforming it into a mobile driven robot.
George Fomitchev wants students to have advantageous access to additional high end tools in order to manufacture their own robotics, and it is complex to find practical open source code that can be done on a 3D printing device. He wants to bring consumer robots to our daily life.
The differences between the self turn it intod and commercial adaptations of a SelfieBot are not that massive. The DIY adaptation is quite easy to assemble and most of the trickier elements are excluded of the final complexware turn it into. Developing a SelfieBot can not need a lot of time or special knowledge.
It is in addition donated under a creative commons license, that means that anyone can manufacture it. Under this strategy the company is planning to bring enthusiasts and hobbyists together around this innovation. It means that folks can share their ideas, vision and thoughts on how to manufacture it advantageous.
George may like to get at very least 20-25 colleges getting eager to start building SelfieBot starting fall 2016 and he said that he is in a system of bargaining with colleges in CA right now. Endurance’s team can be on the market to assist control, donate advice and monitor the progress of students that are building DIY SelfieBot. They are in addition inviting students for a summer internship program.
Endurance is not selling any parts for the construction of a SelfieBot. Equitething that can be needed is listed on their website, and they are all on the market on Ebay and Amazon. Endurance are thinking the convenience of a DIY SelfieBot Kit where you can buy all parts in one box.
Endurance’s mission: “is to educate and encourage students and others by creating a friendly robotics network and to empower them by providing the skills necessary to turn it into and create their own robots that can assist folks in the field of Education.”
