Oculus Laptop Kit has been retired, this page is for legacy information purposes only
OCULUS - The Laptop Mobilizer
OCULUS consists of an adjustable frame that holds a variety of small laptops, complete with powered wheels and a tilting periscope for the laptop's built-in webcam. You can control it over the internet using any desktop web browser, or iOS or Android device
Easy-to-install, open source control software is available as a free download.
Power and communication to the system is supplied entirely via USB. The laptop's battery is charged using its own stock charger, routed through the included charging dock.
Remote Surveillance - RELIABLE: correctly configured systems can be left running for weeks, waiting for remote-control
Telepresence - interact with others at home or in the office, from vast distances away, via 2-way audio and video
Low cost robotic sophistication - other bots with similar features often cost thousands of dollars
Expandable Robotics Platform - open-source software, with open-hardware electronics (API/SDK under development)
Best used on smooth, hard floors*
