Originally announced at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, the Moorebot Zeus Battle Robot kit from Pilot Labs is now available at Amazon and online. The kit includes the robot, wireless controller, battery and charger, as well as a library of mechanical design files for users who want to customise the robot armor with 3D printing with colours, shapes and designs. Gamers will love the Zeus Battle Robot. It is designed to be best robot battle fighter and robot Olympics competitor on the market!
In addition, it is also an educational tool for kids, families, and even serious robot technology developers. Not only can users customise the appearance of their robot via 3D printing, Zeus provides an opportunity to learn about robot development and programming by using the included programming tools and resources.
“This might be most competitive fighter and robot athlete in the world,” said Jun Ye, CEO of Pilot Labs. “Zeus brings the sport of robot fighting to an entirely new level. From Boxing, to Kung Fu, to Karate, to Robot Olympics, unleashing robot power is in the palm of your hand. Or at least in the wireless controller.”
“Zeus is an excellent robot for serious enthusiasts,” said Tristan Green, Editor at The Next Web. “It’s marketed as a fighting robot, but its articulation and customisation make it whatever your ingenuity and imagination want it to be. With this robot, Moorebot has provided everything you need except creativity. It’s a lot of fun, and I definitely think it’d be a great project for parents and children to build and play with together.”
Approximately 14in high and weighing in at 2.2Kg, the Zeus robot was specifically designed for battle competition. The standard configuration is comprised of 22 Servo motors with up to 25Kg punch force each, with up to 32 motors for the next advanced version.
All Servo motors are metal-geared for durability during battle and to sustain heavy forces. The punch speed can reach up to 150m/sec.
The heavy duty custom developed battery supports up to 50 minutes of continuous fighting. The product comes with many standard movements, with an additional graphical programming tool for users to customise more movements.
The current version uses a manual wireless controller but future versions will be more autonomous using built in intelligence, computer vision and even Alexa or other voice control.
