Home » The first Windows 10 IoT Core Robot Bamboo supports Intel Joule

Microsoft is reportedly attempting to improve its Windows 10 IoT Core with the Anniversary Edition. Intel’s CEO revealed it’s introducing the latest innovation platform called Intel Joule, which would support Windows 10 IoT Core. The development platform is described as “the most powerful and rigid” in terms of performance and functionality. Not just that, but the update also comes with improved app support and installation experience.

Microsoft today unveiled Bamboo, a robot running Intel Joule and utilizes cloud-based Microsoft Azure and Cognitive Services which impart an advanced sense of emotions, action and translation to the machine. Bamboo is a companion robotic Panda that analyzes sentiments and moods and responds accordingly. It also works as a translator, so it can translate any language into English and analyze user behavior via Twitter.

Microsoft claims the robot can “move around and understand the environment” with the help of a pre-installed Intel RealSense camera and Intel Joule grid. The lively animations are created via EZ-Robot EZ-B control system.

“Using the EZ-Builder software for Windows and the recently released library  EZ-robot UWP, you can design and give soul to your robot on a computer with Windows,” said Microsoft.

Microsoft inaugurated the idea at the Intel Developer Forum 2016 held in San Francisco and says it can be turned into reality with Intel Joule technology and the upcoming update of Windows 10 IoT Core, due in September.
