I think this is crazy: Would you buy a toy, made by an overseas company, that's armed with a camera, connectivity and AI, and set it loose in your house for your child to play with?
That's the idea behind the UGOT Robotic Kit, by Hong-Kong-based UBTECH, an AI and robotics company. The Robotic Kit contains a modular series of parts that allows one to assemble seven different robot configurations. The resultant 'bots contain "powerful AI features, high computing power," voice recognition, and a host of other features to "provide users with a fun and interactive experience:"
"Featuring a main control unit integrating CPU, GPU, and NPU chips that provide 1TOPS of computing power, enabling gesture recognition, human posture recognition, face recognition, and text and object recognition, users can experience a full range of AI capabilities with UGOT's built-in offline computing power."
"UGOT has a variety of configurable peripherals, such as cameras, infrared and ranging sensors, which can be combined to create rich applications, such as FPV driving with UGOT, playing obstacle virtual games with UGOT, setting up tracks to create challenges together with UGOT, and more."
"With powerful speech recognition using a directional 3-microphone array, UGOT can hear what you say and respond via speaker while moving toward you when you speak. Perfect integration with ChatGPT, making UGOT Robot the latest personal AI assistant with voice commands."
Sounds like this thing can map out your home and memorize your child's voice.
