MU is a gadget that can be used with IR toys including LEGO Power Functions and some HexBug robots to turn them into autonomous robots. You can use MU to get a HEXBUG spider to follow a line or a LEGO Power Functions and vehicle to follow a person. For children who already own LEGO Power Functions, HexBug Robots or Edison Robot, Mu can be a smart eye for all of them. For maker, they can work directly with the Mu via a cable, then get sensor data from Mu and handle it using additional hardware like Arduino. By realize these functions, the small round device integrates a rechargeable battery, a camera, a processorthat's programmed to interpret what the camera sees, a speaker for sound and voice output and an IR transmitter that is used to send IR remote commands to existing toys.
For now MU can only support 3 kinds of IR toys from Morpx's official anouncement, however you may find some other IR toys can also work with MU, for more information about toys that support MU, welcome to visit the Forum of MU.
