Nexi is a MDS or Mobile, Dexterous and Social robot. She was created by MIT, Xitome and UMASS Amherst. The most amazing thing about Nexi is the expressive face. She can show a variety of emotions like angry, bored, confused and happy.
This unique robotic platform combines a number of technologies (sensing, computation, actuation, control and design) to provide a first-in-class offering for those looking for the future of robotics. The balancing 2 wheeled base (RMP-200) provides a small footprint and ultimate maneuverability. The 7DOF Xitome 322c Hands and high DOF arms and torso provide dexterous end effectors that allow the system to interact with humans and the environments they live in.
No word on how much a Nexi will cost you, but expect to pay a small fortune.
