InnoTechnix, a Sainte-Adele based company specializing in the manufacture of small robots accessible to the general public, is proud to announce the launch of MandleBot. MandleBot is a robotic arm made of aluminum with a gripper, the first in a wide range of specialized robots. Developed and assembled in Canada, this robot can be controlled manually or automatically from a USB port with InnoTechnix-designed software (for Windows). One of the main features of MandleBot is that it can be disassembled using a simple Allen key, and reassembled by an 8-year-old child in a few hours.
InnoTechnix is targeting three main markets for MandleBot. It can be used in the education field, with robotics workshops being developed according to the age of the students. It will have a niche in specialty shops such as science centers and premium toy stores, as well as in corporations, where robots can be used in different learning environments and for entertainment.
Inspired by NASA and sci-fi movies, InnoTechnix wants to democratize access to robots, entertain fans of construction and technological games, stimulate the imaginations of young and old, and why not, help create interest in scientific and technology-oriented vocations among young people.
MandleBot is available in two options:
- MandleBot Premium: the robot is delivered mounted with a sturdy carrying case. Special Introductory Price: $ 1,549.00
- MandleBot Geek: the robot is delivered in parts and must be assembled according to the instructions. Special Introductory Price: $ 1,149.00
For geeks, we also provide an API protocol (available for Windows, OS X, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows CE) with full documentation and code samples. InnoTechnix had the privilege of presenting the project on “Dans l’oeil du Dragon” (the French-Canadian version of Dragon’s Den). More than one million viewers were able to see the InnoTechnix robots in action.
