Digit is a humanoid robot with a unique leg design that helps it move in a more dynamic fashion than regular humanoid robots do. It has nimble limbs and a torso packed with sensors and computers that will allow it to navigate complex environments and carry out useful tasks in warehouses and other environments.

Founded in 2015, Agility Robotics develops highly capable bipedal robots for logistics and research applications. The company's goal is to build legged machines that can go anywhere a person can go. Its first robot, released in 2016, is a bipedal platform called Cassie, a dynamic walking robot that could traverse rough terrain and step over obstacles. Unveiled in 2019, Digit is Agility's second robot. Its legs are similar to Cassie's, but Digit is equipped with a torso full of sensors as well as a pair of arms, used for balance, mobility, and manipulation. Agility is working to bring Digit into factories, doing useful repetitive tasks so that humans can focus on more interesting things. A robot factory in Oregon will be able to produce 10,000 Digits per year to keep up with demand.
