The robot fits on the new Ninebot Segway base released when Ninebot bought the company in April. This base is self-balancing just like the old scooter’s and it allows the little robot to scoot around with reckless abandon.

The robot is a joint partnership between Intel and Ninebot. A developer version will launch in 2016 followed by a commercial version.
