When we saw Reachy we were immediately inspired to build it. As a platform, Reachy by Pollen Robotics has the potential to to deliver on the promise of interactive open source robotics. It has a good blend of bio-inspired welcoming form, and capable hardware for experimenting with human & robot interactions.
Circuit Launch is a community of individuals, students, startups, and established hardware companies coming together to develop hardware electronic innovation. We are based out of Oakland California USA, and are offering a new take on robotics education with our Robotics CoLab program.
For 12 weeks we are inviting students to join our program and participate in an experiential robotics education building Reachy! We will be collaborating with the developers and others to help build the Open Source community working on Reachy. We hope to expand the community involvement and will be actively and openly posting our work, to these forums, to the Github project, and as well as our public Wiki we are building.
We are looking forward to collaborating and inspiring more community involvement. We plan on publicly posting our project goals, progress, and any developments we make. There seems to be a lot we can contribute to from redesigning the models to be FDM 3D printable, to expanding the codebase to run on other hardware, and even tutorials to contribute to the documentation.
Thanks for reading our quick Introduction and we’d love to discuss more ways in which we can help and collaborate with Reachy.
