While built by a new company, it appears Emo is "based" off of Cozmo & Vector.
I'm very sorry to hear about the lawsuits that DDL did that ruined the facebook page, and seemed to have delayed the launch date of these robots. The pages says coming soon, but no other details.
There are some other concerns though.
- So if their battery gets low, if their charge station is within their visibility range, can they automatically walk to them? Or do they need 100% help from you?
- I assume a lot of the sounds &/or features will be changed so no more new lawsuits from DDL?
I noticed there are some communities who are displeased/disappointed with this robot considering it being a 'ripoff' of Vector with its similarities in emotional faces, recognition and alexa properties. Then we have other communities who are excited for this robot. I for one would LOVE to see this robot released. It would least give some nice competition for the market.
Anyway, I hope everything goes well. I realize the delay was because of the lawsuit. That was a given. Though I do hope for the best of these robots, and for the company.
