I'm delighted to introduce Erle-Spider as the first legged drone powered by
ROS and running Snappy Ubuntu Core. This smart robot with a 900 MHz
quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor runs Linux natively and embeds several
sensors onboard.

The hexapod has been designed to meet the increasing demand of robot kits
to learn, research and develop while being subject to low levels of
regulation. The drone is also capable of accessing hard-to-reach places
such as pipes and disaster areas, bringing cameras on board and supporting
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, as well as 3G and 4G networks to provide connectivity
where needed.

Besides support for ROS, our team has been working with Canonical over last
months to provide access to a cloud-based app store that would allow anyone
to enhance the intelligence of this robot directly by installing new apps.

Erle-Spider has been launched together with Indiegogo at
will be delivered this Christmas for only 399 $.
