A common theme in sci fi and visions of the future involve robots performing mundane and menial tasks around the house.

Thanks to AI and open source robotic components, we’re getting closer to that vision.

The robot uses machine learning and relies on Python, Tensorflow, and Snips for programming, machine learning, and voice processing respectively. OS-wise we don’t have any official information, but based on Tom’s hardware report Raspbian runs on the Raspberry Pi 4 board, while Luos “RTOS for microcontroller” powered modules from Luos Robotics which are used by Reachy. Everything will be made open-source on their Github account once they ship and each part is stable, and there’s also some information in Reachy repository about the robotics arm.
