Update 12th Oct, 17 : Changed project scope from closed source to open source so anyone interested can built up HomeBot at home from scratch and customize every bit of it.

Project Overview

After success of HomeBot as a hackathon project, HomeBot progresses to whole new and larger market of Hackable Toys. The current hardware and software will evolve to support fully customizable robot of teenagers and enthusiast to upgrade the basic robot, learn basic concepts of programming through graphical environment and interact with the robot in a playable and enjoyable manner.

For the first set of features, there will be a robot that can act and interact with physical emotions, can speak with an attractive voice, it will have an admin app to control, program and update the software, a bunch built in sensors and slots of upgrading the experience with just a snap. First set of upgrades will include slots of adding Lego Mindstorm blocks and will introduce a new way of playing with Lego.
