More than just a robot.

Build - Play - Learn. OPSORO is an open platform for creating social robots. It is a modular system that allows the building and programming of different robotic creatures that provide affective face-to-face communication. With the upcoming demand for social robots, OPSORO is there to help anyone build and program their own robot-friend.

Create your own modules, 3D-print a pair of extra eyes, adjust an app to your own needs,… that’s what we want to achieve with OPSORO. Go to our Github to download our sources. The platform consists of standard parts that can be bought in any DIY shop combined with adjustable parts that can be 3D-printed or laser-cut at home or in any local Fablab (find yours here).

The modularity of OPSORO allows you to start small and expand in unlimited ways following your own imagination. You can use an OPSORO robot to learn how to code in a fun and interactive way, program the right scenario for your funny character, expand its capabilities to control the lights in your home or grab the latest jokes from your twitter feed. You can even expand the hardware with new sensors and motors implemented in your own designs.

Beginners can start straight away building the starters-kit, following the basic instructions and program the robot’s behaviour with an easy scenario editor. Soon enough you will be able to visually program your own robot and assemble the modules. Write your first lines of lua-code and assemble your own modules. Become an advanced OPSORO developer and write your own apps in Python or even design a new set of special eye-modules that can be 3D-printed or lasered. All this is supported and shared within the online OPSORO community.
