A voice-controlled, palm-size robot dog has been unveiled, designed as a small-scale companion and toy for robot enthusiasts.

Created by Petoi, a designer of robotic “pets,” the Bittle X is designed to resemble Boston Dynamics’ quadruped robot dog Spot, and can record, program and follow voice commands. 

Described by the company as a STEM and robotics learning toy for “educators, students, engineers, hackers and makers,” the small-scale robot is the second iteration of a larger design, Bittle, that was unveiled in 2020.

Bittle X’s open-source architecture allows it to be programmed with voice commands and is designed to move and act like a real dog, with a video showing it sitting, jumping, kicking and even scratching itself. 

The robot is powered by BiBoard, Petoi’s quadruped robot microcontroller. It also comes with the option to integrate various smart sensors, like Petoi’s intelligent camera module, its motion sensor or its distance sensor, for enhanced navigation capabilities.
