V.e.r.a.1 Model from PolyopticsLabs

Brian Anderson, of PolyopticsLabs, has decided to create a limited run of the Vulpues Exploration Rover Alpha 1, or V.e.r.a.1. Since being first released 3 years ago, less than 30 of these handmade models have been created. Featuring more than 30 assembled parts, with working lights and a removable head panel, each V.e.r.a.1 is also hand painted with a military style finish. About the V.e.r.a.1:
The V.e.r.a.1 is designed to excel in dynamic scenarios by rapidly adapting to unknown environments.
Instinctual behavior blended with artificial intelligence, controlled by our on board systems, translates into a truly interactive operating experience.
When initialized and adequately powered, the V.e.r.a.1 will process information in the environment and intelligently respond to stimuli. In that state it will directly experience perceptions, sensations, and thoughts.
With a total of 11 pieces being made available, through preorder, the breakdown is as follows:
  • 6 Original Colorway V.e.r.a.1 - priced at $300 plus shipping
  • 1 Military Steel Colorway V.e.r.a.1 - priced at $400 plus shipping
  • 5 Unpainted Clear/Frosted Colorway V.e.r.a.1 - priced at $200 plus shipping
Overall, each V.e.r.a.1 measures around 10cm x 11.5cm x 9cm. With each V.e.r.a.1 being hand made by Brian, there will be differences in each one and should be handled and enjoyed with care. Also, keep in mind that this is a preorder and it is noted that shipment can be 4 months out. Be sure to check out PolyopticsLab for more info.
