UBTECH update!!!!

I sure hope the Amazon Alexa features they are showing on their new Lynx robot are going to be added to our Alpha 2 being that they look to be the same robot just a different color!!!!

Well Ubtech already replied to my Facebook post asking if the Amazon Alexa feature from the newly announced Lynx robot would be coming to Alpha 2 owners here is their response "UBTECH Robotics Thanks for your question, for now Lynx is the only platform with the Alexa technology."

That looks like the same robot!   I don't see any reason why we couldn't run the same software.  It would be nice infact if we could add Alexa ourselves.. I'm sure there must be some instructions / open source software somewhere which we could use.

Question,

We can use Google speech Engine in Alpha 2 ?

Steve you are actually the master at this subject.

Because I get install google translate in Alpha 2, but the thing is used the speech recognition engine from google .

ouch they just did their Live stream from their CES booth and they did not even show Alpha 2 at all in fact it looks like it was not even at the booth he walked all around it and not one spotted in the back ground only showed LYNX, alpha 1, Jimu and Cruzr. not even a mention of Alpha 2!!!

Do you think Alpha 2 is a dead project for UBtech now? have we been screwed?

will see i just posted this to the indiegogo commnents

Ubtech/Rover Lu you just did your live stream from CES and not a mention or showing of Alpha 2 robot at all just Lynx, Jimu, Alpha 1 and Cruzr! where did the development money for Lynx come from being that it looks exactly like Alpha 2 other than color? your not going to give us the Amazon Alexa on our Alpha 2? I can not believe this! I was recommending Jimu to my tech friends that will stop as of now and in fact I will be explaining to them how all this has played out!!!!

I've had my Alpha 2 up for sale for a while but I don't really want to sell... its just the lack of info with the the backers has been terrible with UBtech , i'm just disappointed and now we hear this so screw them tbh.

It is looking to me like they used part of the money to improve Alpha 2 and make it Lynx, I and other early indiegogo and Ubtech Forum members suggested that they add Alexa type functions to Alpha 2 before Amazon announced that they would have a SDK so that companies could put Alexa in other devices. I sent direct messages to them about this when they first announced Alpha 2 I was the 7th indiegogo backer.

It wouldn't surprise me if it was 100% the same bot though... not like alpha 2 couldn't run it, let's be honest.
