Vayyar Announces Walabot, a Handheld 3D Imaging System for Consumers, Developers, and Curious Inventors Everywhere
Available in April for Android devices, Walabot sees beyond the limits of human vision
The 3D- imaging sensor company whose technology makes it possible to see through objects, liquids, and materials, announced today the launch of Walabot, a consumer version of its 3D imaging system. Walabot’s powerful sensor technology can look through walls to detect structural foundations, track a person’s location and vital signs as they move through a Smart Home, measure the speed of a fast- moving ball, and help drones and cars avoid collisions. Walabot’s programmable sensors open up a world of possibilities for curious inventors and developers everywhere.
“Walabot instantly turns a smartphone into a powerful 3D-imaging system at your fingertips. Our advanced technology lets people see all kinds of things hidden in the world around them, adding yet another dimension to the way people use smart devices today,” said Raviv Melamed, CEO and co- founder, Vayyar Imaging. “Walabot makes highly sophisticated imaging technology approachable, affordable and usable for everyone. It can help the blind avoid obstacles, sense – and alert you – if your mother or father has fallen in the shower, help your robot become autonomous, and much more. We cannot wait to see what other kinds of applications makers and curious inventors around the world will create for Walabot.”
Walabot will be pre-installed with Vayyar-created apps at launch. Additionally, the Walabot API will also be made available to the public, giving makers and inventors around the world the opportunity to develop content that takes advantage of Walabot’s truly unique 3D imaging sensor technology. Not only can Walabot users play with existing apps, but they can also create their own or access apps available within the Walabot community. Walabot’s technology is simple and intuitive, so people with any level of experience can use it to enjoy and better the world around them.
