Digit's most recent iteration includes a head and a set of dynamic LED eyes.

Agility Robotics, a leading robotics company, has recently revealed its next-generation bipedal robot, Digit. The latest model of this innovative machine comes with several upgrades that are aimed at enhancing its capabilities and improving its interaction with humans. One of the most notable changes is the addition of a cylindrical head and two animated LED "eyes," which will provide information to observers and enable them to understand the robot's actions better.

In a press release, the company stated that the modifications were made to improve the human-robot interaction, which is becoming increasingly important in various industries. The robot's ability to convey useful information, such as changing direction and other actions, through its eyes will enable humans to interact more efficiently with the robot, thereby improving its overall functionality.

Digit was first introduced in 2020 and was marketed as a versatile tool suitable for use in various industries, including logistics, telepresence, and industrial inspection. The robot is designed to work in the same space as humans, and its size and height (5 feet 9 inches) are similar to that of an average person. Digit's latest upgrades, however, go beyond cosmetics, and include redesigned hands that make it easier to pick up plastic totes used inside warehouses.

The robot's sensor-equipped head is expected to make it easier for humans to understand Digit's actions. For example, the eyes can help convey useful information, such as changing direction or other actions while at work. Additionally, Digit can perform simple actions, such as walking, stepping up on curbs, and crouching, as well as picking up and putting down various types of objects weighing up to 35 pounds.

Agility Robotics is also opening up its Agility Partner Program, which provides partners with an exclusive opportunity to shape the development of Digit's skills and abilities. This program will initially be the only way to purchase the latest generation of Digit. While the cost of the robot has not been disclosed, this program will provide companies with access to the latest technology and enable them to customize the robot's functionality to their specific needs.

Overall, Agility Robotics' latest generation of Digit represents a significant step forward in the development of bipedal robots. With its enhanced human-robot interaction, improved functionality, and redesigned hands, Digit is poised to revolutionize a wide range of industries, from logistics to telepresence, and beyond.
