Note: all customers receive our standard range of demo content where RoboThespian or SociBot perform famous scenes from movies such as RoboCop, Terminator, C3PO impressions, songs like Singing in the rain, and more.
You will probably want to personalise your robot with your own content:
- Adding sound and movement - Song and dance routines, venue information, product promotions etc.
- Changing touch screen buttons - adding new library items, live screen actions etc.
- Making new faces for projected face robots like SociBot.
- Making new eye graphics for robots with LCD screen eyes like RoboThespian.
- Changing robot behaviours by editing or creating Control Functions
- Connecting multiple robots together to make a stage show.
There are a number of tools provided for you to make these tasks as quick, easy and enjoyable as possible.
Engineered Arts provide a powerful web based tool for creating movement routines with audio, it's called Virtual Robot find out all about it here >
It works for all the Robots EA make, and can also work with third party robots. Please ask
Customising the Touchscreen Interface
On earlier robots the Asset manager can be used to arrange touch screen content, add button images and text labels.
Custom Faces for Projected Face Robots
Custom faces can be created and added to Projected Face robots
A 'Guise' is a bitmap texture which can be applied to the robot face. This is usually a human character, but does not have to be! A selection of pre-constructed guises are included by default on Socibot and Socibot-Mini. These include a range of ages, races and genders (including a 'gender neutral' face), as well as several more fanciful characters.
A guide to creating guises can be found here >
