DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
PLEN Cube

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
A portable Assistant Robot

INSPIRATION:
We have been making humanoid robot PLEN2 for DIY and education use. We designed the PLEN Cube for a more common and home/personal level use, and the idea came up with "Where would you put your home robot when you are not using it?" PLEN Cube is made as small as you can take it everywhere even outdoor, and the simple cubic shape shows its existence with blending into interior surroundings.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
PLEN Cube is a portable robot that can consolidate your devices and web services, making them simpler to use and automate; capture moments with a smart camera that tracks your face and motions; and complement your life with hands-free activation and customization options. It's 3-inch-sized that can be kept in your palm and taken everywhere you go, as well as its simple cubic form with impressing motion that makes a lot of interactions with you.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
PLEN Cube recognize your voice, detect your gesture, track your face and interact with you both functional and emotional motion. For example, if you say "show me the weather." it nods its head (to say yes) and show the weather on its display.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2016 and we are still working on product design with mechanical design. We exhibited CES2017 at Las Vegas and started Kickstarter campaign from Feb 21st.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Digital and Electronic Devices Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We achieved to put all the mechanical parts inside this small cube since our mechanical designer is sharing all the 3D models with product designer on Fusion 360. About the product itself, we tried to make the 2-tone color in a simple way, and challenged a lot on materials of the surface(fabric, wood, etc.)

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimension: 72mm x 72mm x 72mm

TAGS:
Robot, Robotics, IoT, Camera

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
It was difficult to put all the mechanical and electrical parts into the small cube to make it move. And the meaning of motion also took a lot of time to design.
