This AI robot arm can do everything from making coffee to 3D printing
Supernova, a South Korean startup, has designed HUENIT, a robotic arm to help people with various household chores and creative tasks. Supernova showcased its AI Camera and Robot Arm at CES 2023. The company has been developing innovative robots to help people with everyday tasks.
Although many innovative technologies were showcased at the CES 2023, the Huenit Robot Arm captured the attention of visitors. HUENIT is an easy-to-use AI-based multi-functional robotic arm that combines advanced AI technologies with a modular arm to work on complex tasks with high precision. The robot can do everything from making coffee to 3D printing a prototype.
The AI camera
It features an AI camera in the robot arm that can capture up to 30 frames per second. It comes equipped with RISK-V-based processors and AI accelerators to support features like real-time face recognition, voice recognition, and object detection. Other features in AI cameras include image classification, color recognition, line tracking, human segmentation, and more.
Display and connectivity
The robot arm works with Wi-Fi, and the Bluetooth feature allows users to pair their smartphones with it. It features an intuitive 2.4" touchscreen display and a microphone with voice recognition. In addition, it has a speaker to help users chat with the device. Using Bluetooth, you can create Internet of Things (IoT) functions via the web or control Huenit wirelessly.
Huenit robot arm can rotate 220 degrees and lift up to 26.5 ounces of weight. It can stretch up to 15.4 inches and can aim with an accuracy of 0.002 inches. Users can add various tools to the arm, like a 3D printer or a high-power laser, to cut or engrave various materials. The high-power laser has an automatic cooling system for temperature control. Users can use the laser module to create artwork with materials like paper, wood, balsa, plywood, foam paper, anodized aluminum, and more.
Other features include a 3D printer with an auto-leveling system, a 40w hot-end heater, and a dual-fan cooling system. The 3D printer comes with a pen module that can be used to write or draw. The robot arm can work with colorful pens using the pen holder module. You can use it to draw sketches, vectors, or calligraphy.
The robot arm comes with an inbuilt vacuum pump that users can use without needing an extra connection. It’s possible to rotate the arm with an inbuilt servo motor. Huenit has a customizable creator tool that enables users to design their modules for various tasks.
Huenit AI Robot Arm allows you to add special attachments to perform household chores. You can attach a special attachment that can hold a spoon or cup. The attachment module has inbuilt ports and power outputs to plug in the things you want to attach to Huenit.
Auto tool change
Huenit is capable of replacing the module by itself using the electromagnet. The auto tool changing feature enables it to handle a workload equivalent to 2 to 3 standard robot arms. The noise reduction feature offers quiet operation in addition to speed, precision, and performance.
Amazon maintains that employees and robots will continue to collaborate within its warehouses, however, according to specialists in robotics, the business may eventually be able to rely on robots to carry out much of the jobs that it currently delegates to human workers.
