    Obstacle Avoidance
    She knows when there is something in her path, from the cat to a flight of stairs.

    3D Mapping/SLAM
    She can map a room, resulting in detailed 3D maps.
    Customization

    Hardware Extensibility
    You can extend her functionality via third party components, e.g. Arduino, Raspberry Pi hardware, and sensors.

    Physical Expandability via 3D Printing
    You can expand her physical form via 3D printed accessories, e.g. custom arms, things she might tow from her tow hook, and costumes.
    Building for Misty

    Programmable Personality
    You can bring personality to Misty and her skills, through her body/head movement, eyes, sounds and voice (via third party integration).

    Easily Programmed
    Her tools and documentation make it easy to bring your ideas to life on Misty.
    Perception

    Video Capture
    She can take and share videos.

    Remote Video Streaming
