Loved Sox in ‘Lightyear’? Well, this remote-controlled robot cat can respond to your commands too!

Dubbed the Nybble, this adorable little steampunk cat is the perfect companion for curious people looking to build and learn something new every day.

Just like Sox from the Pixar movie Lightyear (in cinemas now), Nybble is a clever, compact compadre that’s much more friendly than your average house cat. With 11 servo motors, a proprietary NyBoard processor, and open-source software OpenCat, Nybble can sit, stretch, sleep, balance, greet, and do pushups. Try getting your regular cat to follow those commands… I dare you!

Designed to be a robot that you can build, play, and explore with, Nybble comes with a laser-cut plywood body that you must put together first. The entire process takes about 4 hours including the assembly, software and calibration configuration time, and once you’re done, Nybble is ready to play with! Nybble’s architecture makes it a rather nimble, flexible little cat, as it borrows bionic concepts from a cat’s skeleton. The robot cat comes outfitted with two ultrasonic sensors on its front that act as the robot’s “eyes”. It sports a USB input that lets you connect it to a device to tinker around with its open-source code and teach it new tricks (in Python, C++ or a graphical user interface via the Petoi desktop app), and even comes with Bluetooth and WiFi dongles as well as an infrared remote controller. Other parts include a holder for two 14500 Li-ion rechargeable 3.7V batteries that give Nybble up to 45 minutes of play-time, and even silicone covers for the cat’s feet, to give it friction as well as prevent it from accidentally scratching your furniture!

While Nybble can’t do as much as Sox can in the movie, it’s definitely a step in the right direction given that it’s one of the few robot cats that have such flexible movements (the official Sox plush toy can’t move). However, just like the Pixar feline, Nybble too is a personal companion robot capable of delighting you with its antics. It can be trained via its open-source programmable API, and even physically modified to give it a different character or unique abilities.

The cat is highly extensible with support for Raspberry Pi and Arduino ecosystems to make your robot cat even more advanced! A perfect toy for youngsters, animal/animation lovers, or anyone with an inclination toward coding and robot-building, you can bring home your own Nybble for just $223 during the OpenCat 6th Birthday sale.
