A team of engineers from a UK company has developed a robot designed for beauty and wellness classes and the beauty and wellness classes of schools.
The system is powered by a Raspberry PI-powered ARM microcontroller.
It can be controlled by voice commands, with instructions provided in text-to-speech software.
A video posted on YouTube shows the system interacting with students and a teacher using a voice-controlled voice assistant.
The team says the software has a range of features that are “comparable to those of the human eye.”
The project has been dubbed “beautybot” by the BBC and “wellnessbot” on Reddit.
The device is a “microcontroller with an ARM Cortex-M0 SoC,” according to a news release.
Its power is supplied by a 3.5V microUSB power port.
The beautybot is designed to offer a platform for the “beautiful” to be created by the “well-rounded” and to offer “a platform for students to learn from,” according the release.
The platform “will allow people to develop their own jewelry design, design their own fashion and lifestyle,” according one of the researchers.
The beautybot was built using the open-source Raspberry Pi OS.
