The Ubbo Maker is manufactured by AXYN Robotique, in France, and can be used to help with many tasks and in many different scenarios.  Even more so due to its being one of the only open-source telepresence robots in any market.

What device does the remote user need?

Any device can be used to control the Ubbo as long as it can access the internet. PC users, tablet users, and smartphone users alike can use any web browser to control the Ubbo using the online interface. 

What device should be attached to the Ubbo Maker?

You can attach almost any Android tablet (version 3 or above) to the Ubbo to use as its "head."  Bear in mind that the capabilities of this tablet will define how well you see and are seen, and how well you hear and are heard.  AXYN Robotique, the maker of the Ubbo, have tested most tablets, and all of them work. However, they recommend Samsung tablets with screens around 10" in size with resolution of 1280x800, Android Version 4.4 and above, wifi of 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth version 3 or 4, a 2 megapixel or higher camera, and a USB port.  With Android devices, the Ubbo robot switches automatically to the best wi-fi source.

Are there any options/add-ons to the Ubbo?

The Ubbo can be customized by you, including the option to select from various colors.  Additionally, you can can choose to add on an android tablet, charging dock, 3D file and diagrams, a speaker, and more.  Contact us to get a personalized quote.
