Experience Advanced Humanoid Movement

With 13+ movable joints, the Alpha Mini can dance, move, and workout while the LCD eyes can show emotion and expression. These abilities are all made possible thanks to its sophisticated servos, which have timing accuracy within 0.01 sec, support 360° rotation, and can move with accuracy to 1°.

Alpha Coding

Embrace AI Whilst Coding

Unlike any other K-12 specific robot, Alpha Mini allows students to incorporate AI in the form of voice, face and object recognition into their coding and activities.

Students can program Alpha Mini to undertake a variety of different actions based on input from its sensors and object/facial recognition camera.

With a recent report from Oxford Economics stating that up to 20 million manufacturing jobs could be lost to robots by 2030, educating our students on the ethics of AI and how it applies to jobs of the future has never been more important.

Experiment with Programming

Program and customise Alpha Mini depending on the lessons and exercises you wish to use. Equipped with ROSA, an open platform integrating the Android SDK, you can easily add the applications and documents of your choice. Adding educational materials in this way allows Alpha Mini to assist you in tackling different subjects in a more engaging way.
