Telepresence Platform Streamlines Custom Robot Design

The new Ohmni DevKit is based on the production-grade Ohmni telepresence robot.  Any developer can plug in custom hardware (such as Arduino-based electronics, servos, lights), as well as their own USB devices. The in-call Ohmni API allegedly makes it easy to remotely control these devices, with no networking, signaling, or cloud development required. With Ohmni coding framework for robotics, developers can build rich, interactive HTML5/CSS/JS overlays to Ohmni's browser-based calls that can send and receive commands in real time with Ohmni and your custom devices. 


Kit includes:
