They recently unveiled their robot, Sophia, who has become very celebrated due to her expressiveness and empathy. They aim to disrupt the consumer and commercial robotics market with affordable robots that have applications in media, entertainment, university research and medical training. Their founder and CEO is Dr. David Hanson, a former Walt Disney designer with a PhD in interactive arts and engineering/aesthetic studies.
