Episode Tease

Robotics is the next area for true innovation. At several of our special events we have had the opportunity to speak to middle and high school students who get to learn it as a sport. One of the current issues is in transitioning from small-scale to large-scale robotics is in the controller. When learning, you can use something like a LEGO NXT, but when you go larger, you're forced to build your own platform of sorts.

That is, until now. Redtree Robotics has developed the first advanced computer platform for robotics: Hydra. The controller is designed more like the NXT than an Arduino, meaning that connecting is incredibly easy. It also has a powerful processor, allowing for live sensor processing of many sensors. The controller is also configured to communicate with other controllers, meaning they can process together and create a robot swarm. With enough computing power to run high-end sensors and ease of connecting those sensors, this device is definitely positioned to be a great controller.

The Hydra is available for pre-order now.
