It is capable of heavy computation thanks to its i7 based computer and can do indoor localisation therefore knowing where he is at a venue and thus able to measure geo-located parameters such as temperature, people density, ambient light and air quality. This data can be streamed for real-time analysis. Goes without saying his body is composed of 3D printed parts in addition to other fast prototyping machined components.
