Alive and Aware

Little Murphy is packed with a huge amount of technology that brings him to life. He enters the world using a variety of sensors and then responds realistically. This means that he can read a room, listen to what is happening, recognize people and objects, find his charger, navigate his space and avoid obstacles.

Murphy knows what's going on

...
HE CAN THINK

Murphy combines a processor capable of running a smartphone with cloud connectivity to create one powerful brain. It means he can process his environment, react as things unfold.

...
HE CAN HEAR

Murphy has a powerful four-microphone array for directional hearing. When you sit down next to him, he’s ready to take direction. And if there is a loud noise, he’ll be just as startled as you.

...
HE CAN FEEL

Murphy has touch sensors and an accelerometer so he knows when he’s being touched and moved. You can pet him
and he’ll relax, but try not
to shake him.

...
HE CAN SEE

Murphy uses an HD camera to see the world. Using computer vision, he can identify people, see and remember faces, and navigate his space without bumping into things.

...
HE CAN COMMUNICATE

Murphy has a unique voice made of hundreds of synthesized sounds to create a language all his own. When you ask Vector a question, he utilizes a custom text-to-speech voice to speak directly to you.

...
HE CAN SELF-CHARGE

Murphy knows when he’s running low on juice. When he needs power he’ll roll over to his charger all on his own
(mobile phones and electric cars could learn a thing or two).

Hey Murphy

Murphy responds to your voice. Just say “Hey Murphy” to activate him and he’ll instantly perk up. His backpack will light up as soon as he hears you and he’ll be ready for further instruction.

A helpful character

Murphy is happiest when he’s helping. He’s eager to accommodate your requests and answer your questions. He does it with built-in utility and an optional integration with Amazon Alexa And Google Assistant. This integration gives Murphy the home connecting power of ioT plus the endless amount of skills constantly being developed.
