WowWee Partners with Evolution

Evolution Robotics today announced a strategic alliance with WowWee Robotics(TM) to integrate Evolution's technologies for vision and navigation into the next generation of WowWee products.

WowWee will incorporate two of Evolution's unique technologies in their line of products: ViPR(TM) and Northstar(TM).
ViPR (Visual Pattern Recognition) is visual recognition technology, and provides reliable and fast recognition of patterns, objects, and locations in realistic environments.
Northstar, known as "Indoor GPS," is for position-awareness for consumer robots, and enables robots to navigate autonomously and intelligently.
Both of these technologies will be used by WowWee as they continue to create breakthrough robotic companions and entertainment products.

Evolution Robotics works with leading consumer brands to make their robots smarter using breakthrough solutions in vision and autonomous navigation. Earlier this year Evolution announced that they had been selected by Korean company Yujin Robotics for the navigation system of a household robot.

WowWee has recently been showing some of their new robots. They have both stationary and mobile home robots coming out soon.
