Segway Robot–could be the real droid you are looking for #CES2016

Segway Robot

Segway, the makers of those two wheeler self balancing ride on transport, introduces a new Segway version that can turn into your personal robot companion. With this new tech added on a Segway, this can turn those hoverboards and self balancing two wheelers obsolete.

Segway teamed up with Intel and Ninebot for this project in building a Segway Robot that recognizes its master, do live video stream communication, answers your door, and be your artificial companion.

By looking at the Segway Robot, it reminds me of a Transformers robot, if the future can’t bring us yet a car that can transform a robot, then we can have Segway Robot for the moment, it’s a Segway and then it can turn into a robot with working arms and hands.

Segway Robot

What does it do?
- the Segway Robot see the world around as you drive it
- it can follow you and navigate on its own
- the robot's eye can view 3D, thanks to Intel RealSense RGB-D camera
for depth sensing
- Robot can balance itself while it moves
- it can connect to any smart mobile devices
- its on Android platform (developers can program an app with it)
- can follow voice commands
- powered by an Intel Atom processor
- there are three kinds of camera - the depth sensing camera, the fish eye tracking camera and the photo camera
- powered by a 800W double motors
- can roll up to max of 30Km on single trip and roll on 18km/h comfort speed
- the extendable arm can let you customize some add ons
- and of course…you can ride on it

This new version of this Segway is much smaller and compact, vs. the early Segway.

At first I thought that the arms will automatically move…but it still requires for the rider to attach it.
