  With the help of ARbot and special ARtank App you can plunge into augmented reality, making real tank battles in your office, at home, or anywhere you want!  

Augmented reality

What exactly is augmented reality? It is actually very simple. Imagine you point a smartphone or tablet pc camera at an object and see not only the object itself, but also all information about it on the screen of your device. You can also add some real-time effects that change the look of that object beyond recognition. For example, you point the camera of the smartphone on the ruins of the ancient castle, and the screen at once displays when the castle was built, who lived there, what happened to it, etc. And then, with the aid of an App these ruins are magically transformed into a new building, taking you several centuries back and giving you the possibility of getting insight into the Middle Ages. This is exactly what we call augmented reality, and ARbot and ARtank give us access to it.

Or you come into a fitting-room, choose the image of the suit you like, and on the screen of the device you see how the suit fits you without actually having to try it on. Seriously cool, isn’t it?!

Nowadays, augmented reality penetrates actively into daily life, and our ambitious project is a good example. Soon everyone will be able to buy the ARbot robot and take part in tank battles. The reality is explained by the material character of the robot, and its movements in the real environment.  The virtual world is shown by the real manipulations on the mobile device.

For the last few years the line between reality and the virtual world has become more and more blurred. This fact is supported by the phenomena of augmented reality – modern technology used by millions of people.  

Great For The Kids in Your Life

Fully Interactive 

Live Objects  Appear Normal 

Create Your Own Tank Battles and Battlefields


The ARbot robot is high-quality entertainment for grown-ups and children that combines reality with a virtual world. It has a spherical form (13 cm in diameter and 350 grams of weight) and moves via rotation of its two hemispheres that operate together with a shifted center of gravity to help it surmount different obstacles.

The robot is remotely controlled, charged with either a micro USB device or inductive wireless charge (carbon version). The battery charge usually lasts between 1.5-3 hours.

This robot is a great present for children and adults! Anyone can create real tank battles at home, at the office or at special playing grounds. ARbot can also be transformed into a racing car that can go up to 1.2 meters per second, which means you can have Formula 1 racing at home, or in the office during the break-time. 

The play will last till the end of the robot’s battery. The set also includes a special cube that functions as a tank regulation base.

Sound unreal? This is possible thanks to augmented reality! ARbot robot and ARtank app are designed to work together for robot regulation. How does it work in practice? First, you need to buy the robot, and download the App to your smartphone or tablet pc. Then you simply point your camera on the robot and see a real tank on the screen that can shoot and be equipped with different armament, features,  etc. The tank moves in a real world, for example, on the floor of the sitting-room between the objects of the interior.

INTRODUCING OUR ARTANK APP 

Nowadays many of us despite age and economic status are keen on virtual tank battles because of the popularity of one online-game. Now these battles can be held in a real world at home or at your office. Can you imagine tank fights, lots of munitions, explosions, and at the same time tanks are real but the battle itself is virtual?

 MAIN MENU

The App has two game modes: in Single mode one has to fight against ARtank rivals, and in a Multi-Play mode – fight with a real owner of ARbot. All battles are held in both the real world and in a virtual reality world. This means that the floor in the sitting-room can become a battlefield, and your slippers can be a barrier for the fighters. What is more, you can arrange grand tank battles, as ARbot can maintain about 64 devices in Multi-Play mode.

In order to play in a Multi-Play mode, you will need one more ARbot that will be controlled via the ARtank app for the other mobile device.  Both devices are synchronized, so that all participants see the same image on their screens. ARtank can support about 64 players, so that the game can turn into a grand tank battle! 

PERSONAL GARAGE/TANKS STORAGE AND UPGRADE

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS 

You will definitely ask where augmented reality is. To see more, you need to download a special ARtank app on your smartphone or tablet pc, install and run it, after that you can point the camera on the robot and see a real tank, instead of spherical toy, which moves and shoots like a combat vehicle. The robot will act like the tank that you will see on your smartphone!

What shall we do with it, you will ask me again? This robot would make a great present for a child that wants to play tanks at home without too much chaos or mess. However, nowadays millions of people are into “tanks”; and they can all make real tank battles at home, in the office or anywhere they choose! 

_____________________________________________________________________________

FRIENDLY with any operating system: IOS, ANDROID, WINDOWS 

This innovation is remarkable for its realistic graphics and object refinement, as well as for the opportunity to choose, buy and obtain various kinds of ammunition for the virtual tank. In the long term the founders of the ARbot are planning to integrate the robot with Google glass, so that one can put the glasses on and see the tank instead of spherical robot.

                       

       

And now, how much does this innovation cost? Standard ARbot will cost you ONLY $89, and ARtank app can be downloaded for FREE via Google Play or Apple Store!  However, if you want you can get a carbon version of ARbot as well. 

At the moment we work hard every day to improve and master ARbot so it has a stronger body, extended battery life, new features and new applications.

We have spent a lot of our efforts and savings to bring this interesting idea to life. It started as a thought expressed during a conversation with friends, when a dream of a unique and interesting bot (robot) that allows you to have almost any toy you could even imagine (using Augmented reality). It will bring a lot of joy and fun for your family, friends or at a party.  Imagine the fun of throwing an ARbot tank party!                      

We have a working model of ARbot and the first ARtank App.  We are almost ready to start mass production to bring Augmented reality to everyone as a new interesting tech gaming and education device.
 

OUR FOCUS IS NOW ON: 

                                                  1) DEVELOPING 3 MORE APPS

                            2) CREATING ARBOT MOLDS FOR MASS PRODUCTION

                               3) FINALIZING DESIGN AND TESTING ITS IMPACT

                          4) PREPARING API DOCUMENTATION FOR OPEN SOURCE

                           5) PREPARING LOGIC BOARD FOR MASS PRODUCTION
