What's Misty?

Misty open-source platform and open hardware is designed to delight robotics enthusiasts and institutions while providing access to a high-tech tool.

Misty is designed to perform human to robot and robot to robot interactions using vision algorithms, supervised or autonomous control, and even voice recognition. Misty also has the ability to access the Internet or communicate via WiFi networks.

Advanced Features for a Fully-Programmable Robot

Deep Learning and AI: Qualcomm's Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine creates opportunities to use object detection for machine learning as well as supporting Misty's ability to perform autonomous tasks.

High-performance Computer Vision & 3D Mapping: With the state-of-the-art Occipital Structure Core, Misty recognizes faces and navigates her environment. Misty's 4K camera lets you to grab images and stream video. 

Advanced Mics & Speakers: A 3-mic array detects sound directionally. And Misty's speakers are placed in a carefully engineered sound box with bass port to give Misty amazing sound quality. 

6 Capacitive Touch Panels & 8 IR Time-of-Flight Sensors: Capacitive Touch means that Misty knows (and can react) when someone touches her. Her time-of-flight sensors give you distance data and keep Misty safe from falls. 

Customizable & and Expandable Hardware: Misty isn't just an amazing piece of tech on her own-she's designed for easy hardware modification with her many attachment points:

  • Backpack: Misty's basic "backpack" allows expendability via USB and serial. The Misty Arduino-Compatible Backpack (included in the Misty Starter Pack) turns Misty into a robotic base for your hardware imagination
  • Customizable Arms: Misty's emotive arms can be removed and replaced with creations you 3D print or build
  • Headpiece Attachment: A magnetized connection point on the side of Misty's head allows you to easily attach additional accessories
  • Trailer Hitch: Into the trailer lifestyle? Misty is too. Just hook her up via her built-in hitch port, and she'll tow the (reasonably weighted) trailer of your choice

Software

Misty is a great platform for beginners or advanced programmers who want to work with a fun, fully-programmable and expandable social robot.
 
For Beginners, Misty can be programmed using Blockly, the block-based visual programming language editor that runs in your browser.

For more Advanced Users, Misty is also fully-programmable in Python, JavaScript and ROS. She’s purpose-built for developers, has the tools and docs you need to easily build her skills, and is readily extensible via third-party APIs, hardware modifications, and additional sensors. For those with an interest in HRI (Human Robot Interaction), and researching critical topics of our time like Alzheimer's, Autism, Learning Disabilities, and Aging in place, Misty is ready to play a central role.
 

Misty for Education

Educators are telling us that it’s about time that STEM educators and students have an advanced but accessible robot to use, without having to build their own. And we agree. Misty II is a robot that:
 
  • Is not primarily about the mechanics. Kids are tired of building the same kit robots and doing the same basic tasks with them. Misty II is already built (but easy to take apart), so “non-builder” kids won’t feel bored by an initial assembly process. And, because Misty II is hardware extensible, the “maker” kids have very exciting opportunities to explore of their own 
  • Provides advanced capabilities and handles all the difficult parts of them. Students don’t have to know how to do face and object recognition or mapping, in order to work with a platform that does. They get the advanced technology experience while not getting bogged down in the really tricky parts
  • Feels friendly and fun to all kids, not just the ones who like mechanical objects
  • Supports students learning to code with age-appropriate, easy-to-use tools, from graphical block programming to simple APIs in standard programming languages. Complicated platforms like ROS are not required
  • Provides a platform for Ph.D.’s who are doing AI, ML, and robotics research. We’re not kidding about this. Our Ph.D. Head of Brain Engineering is ecstatic to finally have an expressive, easy to program, personal robot to experiment with
