Using facial recognition technology the First Order Stormtrooper app-controlled robot knows who is a friend of the First Order or who might be a member of Rebel Alliance. Cool? Let’s keep checking.
Ssimilar with the app-enabled R2-D2, it’s an advanced Star Wars themed app-controlled robot that measures 5 x 5.6 x 11 inches and weighs 4 pounds. As we can see from the images, the robot is designed based on First Order Stormtrooper from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the robotic Stormtrooper features meticulous detailing and accurate colors from the original First Order Stormtrooper’s armor suit, but the chibi-style appearance design makes it look more adorable.
Using built-in WiFi module the robotic Stormtrooper wirelessly communicates with your smartphone, and its custom app is available in two versions for both iOS and Android. Furthermore, the app-controlled robot features facial recognition technology, so you can use its app to create a database of up to three faces for customized interactions.
Moreover, using augmented reality technology and a built-in IR sensor the robotic Stormtrooper is able to detect and avoid objects in your room, and built-in tripod array microphone allows the robot to locate the source of a sound and receive your voice commands. In addition, the robotic Stormtrooper in sentry mode can patrol a designated area of your home. It will send you notifications when detecting intruders and will respond based on your command.
The Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper app-controlled robot has been available for preorder for $299.99 USD. If you’re interested, jump to Amazon for its more details.
