Following a successful Kickstarter campaign which raised $455,000 from 743 backers, emerging family robotics company, Enabot, announces the availability of its family robot companion, EBO X.
The EBO X industry-first commercialised household robot is now officially available to purchase from the Enabot website with an RRP of $999/£999, with stock landing on Amazon and other major retailers soon.
A versatile three-in-one home guardian
The EBO X is an advanced home robot offering versatility with its powerful hardware and software. It is not only a mobile homebot with Alexa built in and V-SLAM navigation, but an all-round smart home device with a 4K stabilised camera supported by Colour Night Vision and a premium speaker customised by Harman AudioEFX.
While it serves as a guardian with its agile home security and health alert system, it can also be a companion and playmate, providing flexible remote communication and diverse home entertainment experiences.
A compact intelligent home robotics solution
The power of robotic intelligence of the EBO X relies on the computing components housed in its compact soccer-sized spherical body. It is equipped with the improved and powerful X3M chip, which is built using a dual-core BPU structure and can perform five trillion operations per second. This, in combination with the tens of thousands of hours of training data, enables the EBO X to quickly create a map of the home using V-SLAM technology, for precise area division and organisation.
The EBO X is built with a strong and sturdy structure, making it effortless to manoeuvre. Its unique two-wheeled self-balancing design gives it the ability to move around with great accuracy and flexibility. Furthermore, with the help of the integrated dTOF and ALS sensors, the EBO X can avoid any potential harm caused by accidentally crossing boundaries or running into objects.
To offer solid performance in computer vision, the EBO X features a 4K camera with a one-axis stabilisation system and an adjustable vertical angle within a range of 104°. It is equipped with an 8-megapixel ultra-low-light sensor and provides an impressive 106° super wide FOV. Complementing this outstanding visual capability, the EBO X also has a four-microphone array and reliable far-field sound sensors, enabling it to identify the source of the sound quickly and accurately. When a user talks to it, the device will turn towards them, getting ready to listen.
With all these advanced intelligent features in place, the EBO X can perform sophisticated tasks such as smart tracking. For example, if a child says ‘EBOEBO, follow me!’, the EBO X will follow them wherever they go, like a faithful companion.
An all-round home robot that keeps family safe, connected and entertained
The EBO X is designed to act as a ‘smart guardian’, offering users helpful features whilst away from their family. Particularly for elderly loved ones, the EBO X offers the Elderly Fall Alert feature, which can detect if an elderly person has fallen via its pose inspection algorithm. Through the App, a Medication Reminder can be set up that triggers the EBO X to identify the elderly family member through facial recognition and provide voice reminders about the medications.
Additionally, to secure from emergency, the EBO X's Certain Areas Intrusion Alert allows users to designate certain places on the map as off-limits and will notify them if someone unauthorised enters the area, such as a child. If a child is crying or anyone at home is experiencing an emergency and calling for ‘HELP’, the EBO X will detect it and trigger an App call to the users.
The EBO X connects people with those they care about by allowing for vivid and steady real-time two-way conversations with the EBO Home App, powered by a 4K Stabilised Camera. It permits multiple members of a family to log in and chat together at once. As each family member interacts, they can observe each other from the EBO X's point of view. Users can even leave relatives a message by typing a text that will be transformed into a voice message or set reminder tasks. In addition, the EBO X is a great pet companion and can capture photographs of them at a low angle.
Designed to be fun and engaging, logging into an Alexa account gives easy access to the EBO X and its ability to connect to any Alexa service. This connection allows the user to control any IOT devices in the home. The speaker, powered by Harman AudioEFX, will give an amazing sound experience while streaming music and, additionally, the dynamic lighting effect will alter in response to the rhythm of the song that's playing.
A commitment to protecting user data privacy
Enabot designed EBO X with privacy protection as a priority. All content can be stored on a local memory card, if desired. There are three ways to protect privacy while using the EBO X: an on-off toggle switch in the App to deactivate the camera, a physical shutter to cover the camera, and a privacy button on the EBO X to shut off both the camera and microphone.
