Meet BitbeamBot, an Angry Birds playing robot, which was seen at the PyCon 2012, a conference on computer programming language Python in Santa Clara, CA. It is a tiny robot that was basically meant to interact with touchscreen gadgets. But, it has grabbed interest as an Angry Birds player robot rather than anything else. The robot is designed by an anonymous designer, who can be seen presenting the product in the video clip below the article.
BitbeamBot is designed to do any tasks that require repetitive touches of fingers on the touchscreen display of a device. The creator has launched an SDK as well for the robot, which will help developers design the tasks for the bot to perform. It seems that apart from playing games, the robot can be made a tool for doing many jobs that people might feel tedious due to repetitive steps and actions.
Anyway, it is quite funny to watch the robot playing the famous online game, Angry Birds. The four-legged BitbeamBot stands over a tablet and uses its middle stylus-like tool to play the game. The original design of the robot was in LEGO bricks. The designer has now utilized Bitbeams to shape the robot, which is powered by Arduino and some homemade software.
Bitbeams are poles to build toys, tablet stands and other products. They are described as building toys for grown-ups. The LEGO-shaped stuffs come in long poles and need to be screwed to build awesome creations. Bitbeams are widely used to build tablet stands and various computer accessories. The BitbeamBot owes its very name to the Bitbeams.
