The Oddwerx Autonomous Smartphone Robot transforms the iPhone or Android phone into an autonomous robot. Oddwerx is OLogic’s brainchild and supports a majority of advanced robotics R&D projects including Google Cellbots project, Willow Garage’s ROS, and MyRobots’ Cloud Robotics.
Oddwerx’s developer library provides access to the development of sociable robots by anyone. Oddwerx is multiplatform, modular, wireless, small, hackable and extendable.
Due to its massive funding platform for creative projects, Kickstarter has been selected by OLogic. Regarding the launch of Kickstarter, the CEO and Co-Founder of OLogic, Ted Larson says that Kickstarter will be the suitable location for OLogic to achieve capital investment for robotic components. Kickstarter achieved an instant customer base on completing the product and also enabled pre-selling of finished robots based on the only the design and prototypes. In addition, it facilitates OLogic to market product test demand prior to manufacture.
The COO and Co-Founder of OLogic, Bob Allen explains that the strategy behind Oddwerx begins with the emergence of smartphone, followed by the launch of compelling products that will revolutionize the smartphone into a mobile robotic platform. Using smartphones, OLogic can bring upgrades to consumer robotics. This new operating paradigm will enable the development of a series of brands.
Oddwerx Smartphone Robot accepts funds through websites, the Kickstarter funding period continues for about a month. The Oddwerx robot, once completed can readily be adapted for use in mobile phones.
