The Product

A bipedal home-servicing robot that can tend to the user’s basic home needs: setting room temperature, managing water and lights, turning on TVs, setting channel preferences, etc.

The Challenge

The challenge with a bipedal robot was taking into account the mobility and engineering constraints already in place to create a design that would operate at full functionality while still appearing friendly, approachable, and high-tech. The design would need to be completely mobile and as humanoid as possible. Additionally, it needed to include a large touchscreen display that would allow for videoconferencing.

The process

Speck’s team of engineers recognized to be as human-like and dexterous in its movements as possible, the robot would need to balance, bend its knees at certain angles, descend and ascend stairs without falling over, and move freely without any obstructions. The team carefully and deliberately worked the placement of sensors and motors into the design to appear intentional but also allow for full mobility and functionality of the robot. Using kinetic bio-mimicry of movement, the industrial design team created a robot that would not only walk but have a robust self-balancing capability.

the outcome

The final result was the world’s first commercialized biped robot, Walker. It bridges the gap between technologies that were once only available in scientific research institutions and everyday people. Its impact has been tangible and positive, providing services that people have never had access to before. As the world’s first biped robot of its kind, Walker is a futuristic technology already making a difference and having a positive impact.
