As predicted last week, DJI released the RoboMaster EP on March 9th. This is DJI’s second educational robot and it is compatible with multi-party hardware, supports multiple software platforms, and has an open SDK.
Today, DJI releases its latest product, the DJI RoboMaster S1. An educational robot for techies of all ages. We had the change to play around with it in DJI’s offices in NYC last Friday and these things are a lot of fun! First off, check out those wheels. These guys spin, drift and move in any direction you want. The can also shoot infrared lasers and beads. So yes, you can play your own version of RoboWars with your friends and family. You can build them yourself. Fight against each other. Race each other, and program the S1. It comes with sensing technology and has a camera for FPV mode. The DJI RoboMaster S1 is priced at $499 and is available at the official DJI online store and official resellers as of tomorrow. I know it is not a drone, but you have to give DJI credit for bringing this awesome robot to the market!
