Universal Remote Control: The Cutest Bearbot

UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROL

Bearbot is a new cutest amalgamation of bear and robot (bear+robot= Bearbot).

In fact, Bearbot isn’t actually a robot, it is a universal remote control. It is nothing like anything that you have ever seen before. There are no buttons and no giant touch screen in Bearbot.

What the Universal Remote Control do?

This bear in Bearbot is like a trained circus bear. In addition this very attentive little fellow waits patiently for you to issue instructions with your hand gestures.

He’ll perform an action just after you do a gesture in front of his face.

Furthermore, Bearbot can regulate your thermostat, raise and lower your blinds, dim the lights, or kindle a movie on your home theater.

Bearbot Built:

Hence Bearbot can control an extremely different assortment of devices. Appreciatively, setting them all up is not a complex process. Just get the Bearbot app and tap through the steps.

For more help, Bearbots come in groups.

The big fellow loves to follow your commands, but he might not always be within the range of the device you want him to manage.

That’s where the little Bearbot comes in.

The mini Bearbot is a screen less repeater that listens for commands from big one and beams them to a nearby device, which you want to be controlled, using an IR blaster.

Fundraising for Bearbot:

The creators of Bearbot are looking for €199,000 on Indiegogo (the largest global site for fundraisers), and it’s a fixed goal.

In case Bearbot is too far from the device (more than 5 meters) or is hidden behind an obstacle, mini Bearbot relays the infrared information. Image Courtesy: Google
