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. Misty will begin its mission with the release of its first robot and a collaborative ecosystem for robotic development. Ian Bernstein, co-founder and CTO of Sphero and Head of Product at Misty Robotics, tells you all about it on eDay. And he takes some of his new robotic friends with him!
Our future with bots
“Soon robots will be a constant touchpoint throughout our lives, becoming commonplace and serving a variety of purposes that are very different than what exists today. We have a rough idea as to what this will look like from science fiction and glimpses of brilliance that have happened in this space,” says Ian. “My vision is for Misty Robotics to lead this charge toward delivering the future we were all promised.”
Misty Robotics: a new project for Ian Bergstein
In 2010 Ian and co-founder Adam Wilson started the Connected Play company Sphero. Sphero is best known as the creator of toy robots including the Star Wars BB-8, Cars Lighting McQueen, SPRK, Sphero, and others. Recently, Bernstein launched Misty Robotics, with the mission of putting a personal robot in every home and office. Their first robot will be on the market in early 2018.
