Currently the Head of Misty Robotics, Inc. Based in Boulder, CO, we are building the robot for everyone. Misty Robotics’ vision is to put a personal robot in every home and office. These robots will be seen and treated as our friends, our teammates, and a part of our families — performing helpful tasks, providing safety, and interacting with humans in entertaining and friendly ways that have only been seen before in science fiction. We are taking baby steps today towards this vision – building product that will hit the market soon.
