[DEMO Fall 2011] OLogic is launching the Automated Music Personality (A.M.P.), a two-wheeled, self balancing “robotic” music player that can be operated using a Smartphone (only android for now). The company will be able to ship it for $400 or less, which is an incredible low price for a self-balancing robot.
Self-funded to-date via consulting revenue, OLogic is looking for funding to help build efficient distribution channels and bring the A.M.P. to the market.
A.M.P. boasts a powerful audio system located in it chest, a cradle in the back to attach any type of music player, a cup holder, and several command buttons to control volume for example. Using the proprietary remote control or your Android phone you can make A.M.P. follow you, make it dance or stream music via Bluetooth.
Check out the demo video. Pictures coming soon.
Down the road, OLogic expect to add more features like the baility to replace the A.M.P. head with an iPad to offer an affordable telepresence robot.
