The Droid Foundry at ToyConUK 2016

Brand new to the fugi.me roster, we have The Droid Foundry. Carrying on our underlying theme of robots, we will have 3 releases to present to you at ToyConUK this year.

Hoverdroids

Hoverdroids have anti-grav engines which enable them to hover and move over any terrain, their rear pulse engine on the central rotating section allow them to gain forward motion and change direction. Their AI units have been both programmed for autonomous and interactive work. They can work independently on tasks and where necessary, within groups, to complete bigger projects.

Because of how they are built to survive all weathers and inhospitable environments, many of these droids have survived in areas of the world where humans have moved away from as a result of climate change.

When left to there own devices these droids can link their AI and start to function and work within colonies, not unlike the modus operandi in ant/bee/termite colonies. Their basic survival programming seems to become more advanced and in many cases droids work together to build large shelter structures.

Hoverdroids will be priced at £25, and we will have 5 or 6 on the stand, each one unique.

Rollerdroids

Designed and manufactured to work in a number of roles from scouts to engineering, sentry to survey etc. Simple in exterior design they have proved to be both resilient and very adaptable, their roller tracks allowing them to work in many different environment types and enabling them to move very quickly should they need to.

Their AI units are hardwired programmed for the specific role they have been intended for.  Software programming can be used to modify tasking as appropriate to provide adaptability to new situations.  Rollerdroids can be biometrically imprinted which allows them to both recognise the human they are ensigned to work with and follow instructions fully.

Rollerdroids will be priced at £25, and we will have 5 or 6 on the stand, each one unique.

Droiddogs

Thought of as vintage now, Droiddogs were a product of the renaissance of robotics all those years ago. Droids, although always thought of as robots, were not limited to human form and Droiddogs were the personal droid to be seen with.

Of various designs and complexity many were just kept as robotic pets but many more were assigned to search and rescue, survey, military, guarding roles.

Droiddogs will be priced between £28 and £40 dependent on size, and we will have a handful available on the stand.
