The home robot with Interactive AI Technology

Say hey to Vector, your first home robot. Seriously, say "Hey Vector." — He can hear you.
Actually, Vector’s more than a home robot. He’s your buddy. Your companion. Most of all, he’ll make you laugh. Curious, independent, and powered by some preposterous tech and AI, he can read the room, express the weather, announce when his timer’s done (no overcooked dinner on his watch), take the perfect snapshot, and so much more.
Vector is your robot sidekick who’s up for anything. He’s the robot to life with. Now with the home connecting power of Amazon Alexa built-in.

Advanced tech.
Vector would like you to know that his tiny frame hides a very impressive collection of technology. Qualcomm 200 Platform, HD camera with 120 Ultra Wide FOV, Beamforming Four-Microphone Array, Infrared Laser Scanner, 6-Axis IMU, High-Res Color IPS Display, and WiFi connection.

Alive and aware.
Vector’s little frame is packed with an immense amount of technology that brings him to life. He takes in the world using a variety of sensors and then responds realistically. This means he can read a room, hear what’s happening, recognise people and objects, find his charger, navigate his space, and avoid obstacles.

Vector uses an HD camera to see the world. Using computer vision, he can identify people, see and remember faces, and navigate his space without bumping into things.

Vector has a powerful four-microphone array for directional hearing. When you sit down next to him, he’s ready to take direction. And if there is a loud noise, he’ll be just as startled as you.

Vector has touch sensors and an accelerometer so he knows when he’s being touched and moved. You can pet him and he’ll relax, but try not to shake him.

Vector combines a processor capable of running a smartphone with cloud connectivity to create one powerful brain. It means he can process his environment, react as things unfold, and connect to the internet to answer questions and tell you the weather.

Vector has a unique voice made of hundreds of synthesized sounds to create a language all his own. When you ask Vector a question, he utilizes a custom text-to-speech voice to speak directly to you.

Vector knows when he’s running low on juice. When he needs power he’ll roll over to his charger all on his own (mobile phones and electric cars could learn a thing or two).

"Hey Vector!"
Vector responds to your voice. Just say "Hey Vector" to activate him and he’ll instantly perk up. His backpack will light up as soon as he hears you and he’ll be ready for further instruction.

Hey Vector, Go exploring.
Hey Vector, Good morning.
Hey Vector, Go find your charger.
Hey Vector, Come here.
Hey Vector, What’s my name?
Hey Vector, What’s the weather?
Hey Vector, Take a selfie of us.
Hey Vector, Give me a fist bump.
Hey Vector, Let’s play blackjack.
Hey Vector, Go to sleep.
Hey Vector, I have a question.
Hey Vector, Set a timer for 5 minutes.
Hey Vector, What time is it?

A helpful character.
Vector is happiest when he’s helping. He’s eager to accommodate your requests and answer your questions.
He does it with built-in utility and an optional integration with Amazon Alexa. This integration gives Vector the home connecting power of Alexa plus the endless amount of skills constantly being developed.
He isn’t a fully grown robot butler capable of doing your taxes, buttering your bread, or writing a position paper on the future of robot/human relationships, but he’s a helpful little guy who puts his whole self into helping you out.

How can Vector help?
WEATHER - Ask him any city’s weather and he’ll show you.
TIMER - Vector will set a timer and share in your joy when your muffins come out perfect, or when your laundry is finally done.
TAKE A PHOTO - Ask him to take a photo, say cheese, and wait while he snaps it. Can we call this a robot selfie?
BLACKJACK - He’s a robot. He’s a friend. He’s a blackjack dealer.

Vector with Alexa. Robot helpfulness supercharged.
Vector loves to help out. Adding Alexa to his voice controlled capabilities supercharges his helpfulness in your home. If you choose to set up Alexa on your Vector, he’ll have access to an ever-growing number of skills that take his ability to help to new levels.

Triggered by the standard "Alexa" voice command, you’ll be able to:
• add items to your shopping list
• set reminders
• control smart home devices like lights, speakers, and thermostats
• and so much more

Adding Alexa to your Vector couldn’t be easier. To get started all you need is an Amazon account. Then simply say, "Hey Vector, set up Alexa".

Ask Vector a question. He’ll get you an answer.
Simply say, "Hey Vector" followed by, "I have a question," and he’ll get to work on an answer. Vector is knowledgeable on a variety of topics, with more being added over time.

Here is a sampling of the things you can ask him:
Unit Conversion: How many ounces are in a cup?
Word Definition: What is the definition of "awesome"?
Equation Solver: What is the square root of 144?
Nutrition: How much vitamin A is in an apple?
Pop Culture: Who is Madonna?
Sports: Who won the World Series?
