Archive Your Life with ROBONOTE!

Robonote web page

  • Evernote extends your brain.

  • Robonote gives Evernote eyes and ears

Liberate your mind as you extend its reach across the globe, instantly archiving all you experience in full motion video, saved instantly to Evernote so you can enjoy those memories for many years to come and share them easily with others.

Robonote leverages the power of Evernote’s incredible storage, sharing, and retrieval capabilities by using it to warehouse your sessions with a telepresence robot. As you control a robot remotely, from anywhere you have a web connection, everything you witness will be immediately saved to Evernote, including important conversations with loved ones or precious moments with pets who are far away, whenever you are away at work or traveling.

Robonote uses the robust Skype network so the quality of your archival videos is excellent. Any Skype chat messages typed during a session become part of the Note. The chat messages are automatically time-stamped so you can create an instant table of contents of the movie by making quick topical annotations during a session, making it easy to return to important points in the video later.

Robonote supports the Emotiv EPOC EEG headset for a completely hands free telepresence experience. Instead of using Robonote’s mouse-based point and click interface, you can use the EPOC to pilot the robot using head movements, eye blinks, and a strong thought or feeling. This also makes the system accessible to those with severe physical disabilities. For others it is a unique and intuitive alternative method to control a telepresence robot. Note, use of the Emotiv EPOC EEG headset is optional and is not necessary to use Robonote (but it is exciting!).
