KUBI is a sleek, motion controlled robot that turns your tablet into a portable, affordable and interactive solution for video conferencing. With a tablet mounted in KUBI, a remote user can log into a control web page over the internet and pan & tilt.
See more, and get more from video calls - During a face-to-face conversation, an often overlooked yet essential component of the interaction is non-verbal communication. KUBI brings video conferencing closer to natural human interaction by giving you control over where you look. 300° of pan and 90° of tilt allow you to see and speak to everyone in the room.
KUBI means “neck” in Japanese, and that’s what it is, a neck for your tablet that allows remote users to look where they want by panning & tilting the display. Intuitive, internet based controls can be accessed through any web browser. Create a virtual layout of your conference room with saved camera positions that can be shared with other remote participants using conference mode for a more curated meeting experience, or enjoy the precision, tap to center simplicity of grid mode.
