Revolution JD

$499.00 USD

JD is a fully functional humanoid robot kit built with ez-bits. This humanoid design is fun and educational! JD boasts 16 degrees of freedom with metal gear heavy duty servo motors!

The camera in the head of this robot can be used for vision recognition (color, motion, glyphs, QR codes, faces and more). There are 18 RGB LEDs in the eyes of JD, which can be programmed and animated for unlimited expressions. The included EZ-Builder Software makes it easy to create customize movements and programs.

JD includes apps that allows him to walk, right away. The EZ-Builder Software includes an amazing GAIT feature called Auto Positioner. This allows you to create frames and actions to animate servo positions. The actions can be linked to any other control, such as Speech Recognition, Vision Tracking, Joysticks, Wii Controllers, and more.

Interactive and social.

JD's eyes have 18 LEDs (9 per eye), which can be configured for up to 1 million color combinations. The head contains a camera which can track colors, faces, motion, glyphs, and more.

ezrobots are visual learners.

The camera features advanced vision learning, detection and tracking abilities. Your ezrobot can interact with objects, colors, faces, motion, glyphs, and QR codes!

Grippers provide interaction.

The compact grippers are powered by strong metal geared servo motors, allowing your robot to interact with soft, light objects. We recommend colored foam balls – the kind you can find at any value, hobby, or department store. They are perfect for your robot to grip and interact with.

Simply clip'n'play.

Customize your robot with ez-bits. All ezrobot Revolution parts include ez-bit connections. Simply slide the tab into the slot to establish a secure bond. The parts may be separated by sliding them apart. Multiple ez-bits can be connected together to make arms, legs, or anything else you dream up!

In the classroom, and at home.

Children playing with robots at home, and at school.

In the classroom or at home, ezrobot Revolution has a big impact on learning. You will learn about robots, and have fun doing it! With hundreds of tutorials, no questions are left unanswered. Personalizing ezrobot behaviours teaches students how robots walk, see, hear and interact with their surroundings.

Software that's easy to use.

The ez-bv4 is the world's most powerful and compact robot brain, suitable for all skill levels – from beginner to advanced. It consists of two boards, sandwiched together in a compact 2-square inch package. The stylish white plastic shell protects the speaker and electronics, with a speaker chamber for clear, enhanced audio. For advanced users, the ez-bv4 may be removed from its casing and mounted directly in your custom robot.
