Escape Pod for Vector

Digital Dream Labs is proud to introduce Escape Pod for Vector. Designed for hobbyists and anyone wanting to develop their own infrastructure, Escape Pod allows your favorite robot companion to function independent of our cloud servers while also enabling the customization of voice commands and improving response times.

Local Server Offers Increased Security & Conversational Experience

Escape Pod for Vector is much more than simply an "insurance policy" in the event of service interruptions with external servers. It allows Vector owners to host their robot on a local server (Raspberry Pi not included), providing unparalleled security.

In addition to the increased privacy, the use of a local server will also improve Vector's response times; making for a more conversational experience.

Additional Capabilities & Features

Escape Pod's user interface also allows Vector owners to access advanced customization options and other enhancements:

  • Open Source Extension Engine - connect with third-party services to collect external information (weather, data from other smart devices, and more)
  • Firmware Management - easily upload firmware images to the Escape Pod for storage and flash them directly to a connected robot during the onboarding process.
  • Behavior Logging - see what the Escape Pod heard on each voice command via the web interface; enabling advanced debugging of behaviors.
  • Onboarding Variables - set all of the variables in the robot that were previously only available via the app (locale, location, back button behavior, etc.).

Open Source Kit for Robots (OSKR)

Open Source Plus Escape Pod

The OSKR is for the hardcore hobbyist or professional who would like to create their own features to sell themselves or license/sell it to us to sell to all of our users. Think of this being an "app store" for a robot. You will be able to modify the source code on your robot to adjust behaviors, animations, and more. This is a far deeper experience than the current SDK.

The Escape Pod will allow Vector to function without any external servers, and is an insurance policy if Digital Dream Labs is no longer able to maintain Vector. This level is good for those who are concerned that server access would discontinue in the future, or for those hobbyists who want to use their own infrastructure, server, etc. The user will be able to bypass the current firmware and use other firmware or apps that the community may generate.

INCLUDES:
1x Open Source Kit for Robots (OSKR)
1x Escape Pod

NOTE: Open Source Kit will be delivered digitally. No physical goods will be shipped.

Vector 2.0 AI Robot Companion

Say hey to Vector, the first home robot that will steal your heart, not your data. Smart right out of the box, Vector is more than a robot companion. Curious, independent and powered by AI and state-of-the-art robotics, he can read the room, share the weather forecast, set a timer (no overcooked dinner on his watch), take a snapshot and so much more. Vector is your sidekick who's up for anything but mostly just wants to make you laugh.

    Big Hardware Improvements for a Little Robot

    While Vector 2.0's appearance has remain largely unchanged from the previous generation, we've made a few improvements that will make a big difference in this little robot:

    • Increased Battery Life - the new battery will provide as much as 30% longer runtime. The battery can also be easily accessed and replaced at home via the redesigned battery compartment.
    • Improved Camera Resolution - Vector's new 2MP camera will enhance his facial recognition; along with planned software development, this will improve his ability to recognize pets and even know if you are smiling.

    IMPORTANT: 

    Pre-orders placed for this product before June 12, 2021 start delivering Q3 of 2022. Orders received after this date will start delivering Q4 of 2022 in order of the transaction received.
