PARROT JUMPING SUMO: MAKE THE WORLD YOUR PLAYGROUND
A life-sized arcade game
The Parrot Jumping Sumo is a connected robot of a new kind, with a strong character and colourful attitude. With the Parrot Jumping Sumo, every element of your environment becomes a new challenge!
It is as speedy, responsive and manoeuvrable as a racing car. It can run at full speed (2 m/s) inside the house, take on 90 degree turns and weave in and out of everywhere!
It can also perform a 180 degree turn in a flash, demonstrating unrivalled technical prowess, unique in the world of toys.
Its two large retractable wheels ensure perfect road control and allow it to adapt to all driving styles: the wheels can be extended for greater stability at high speeds or retracted for 'compact' mode, increasing its agility and ability to speed through narrow areas...
It is piloted using Wi-Fi 2.4 or 5 Ghz via the FreeFlight 3 application for iOS and Android Smartphones or tablets, and for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1.
- The tumbler robot that nothing can stop
Jump on to a chair? On to a table? Jump into your arms? Avoid an obstacle? No problem, the Parrot Jumping Sumo can obey and always lands on its wheels!
Make all sorts of movements and impress with acrobatics without any training, using the FreeFlight 3 application:
- Spin around and jump up;
- Roll upside down;
- Beat time;
- Push or hit an object;
Thanks to a patented spring-mounted system, the Parrot Jumping Sumo can jump up to 80cm high and long! Your entire environment becomes its playground and nothing is off limits when designing new and entertaining courses and challenges to take on!
A 'road plan' enables you to plot a course and series of actions. Once entered into the application, the commands appear as pre-defined a movements for the Jumping Sumo. You just have to click on a new icon to see the Jumping Sumo drive itself autonomously.
- The world in an immersive view
The Parrot Jumping Sumo is equipped with a wide angle camera that streams live immersive views onto the screen of the piloting Smartphone or Tablet.
You can discover the world at the height of the Jumping Sumo and explore areas that were previously inaccessible...
It can also capture pictures and videos which are stored on a USB stick formerly plugged on the robot.
- The connected robot that expresses its emotions
The Parrot Jumping Sumo is a robot like no other. It expresses its emotions. When everything is fine and it is ready to play, its eyes shine green.
A problem? An irritation? They turn red.
The Parrot Jumping Sumo also makes "noises" each time it is woken up, when it falls correctly on its wheels or when it is in an "uncomfortable" position. Pet its head or pat its body and it will react affectionately!
The Parrot Jumping Sumo is available in three different variations: black & red, khaki & yellow and white & black. It can be personalised with a set of stickers to change its style or mood.
The Parrot Jumping Sumo works with a rechargeable Lithium Polymer 550 mAH battery (also compatible with the Parrot Rolling Spider)
