nuvo Code Being Shared With All – ZMP
ZMP, the Tokyo based “worldâ€™s first venture company focusing on robot technology” is selling the source code (Japanese site) for nuvo, one of its best-selling robots.
nuvo was unveiled in 2004 and ZMP says itâ€™s the first robot for home use.
The company are aiming to establish a research community focused on the findings from research with the nuvo source code.
They are targeting educational institutions, companies and individuals.
For $2,400, buyers will get one of the nuvo robots, the source code (in C++ and C) and an electrical circuit diagram.
3 days of instruction by ZMP employees (maintenance, system analysis etc.) is also (fortunately) included in the price.
ZMP hopes to make a contribution to next-generation robot technology as a whole – that’s a thing of beauty man!
This sounds all very neo-hippy but the number of participants in the â€œnuvo source code programâ€ is limited to 50, with the first one being a Japanese professor……..hmmmmmmm………
