CES 2019: OhmniLabs Affordable Robotics
Monday January 28, 2019
Allison interviews Dr. Tra Vu, COO, and Jared Go, CTO of OhmniLabs about their innovative 3D printed robotic arms. OhmniLabs makes useful and affordable robots that bring people together. OhmniLabs’ robots are made in the USA using lean and scalable manufacturing via 3D printing to enable rapid and low-cost products. Their goal is to make affordable robotics more available to research labs and corporations for inclusion into products for everyday use.
OhmniLabs’ team is composed of technical experts from Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, and Google as well as experienced entrepreneurs who have grown and sold companies in the past. The setting is the CES show floor at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas.
OhmniLabs is changing the paradigm of robotics development. We thrive at creating flexible robotics modules and scalable additive manufacturing processes. Every engineer (software, electrical, mechanical) on our team is cross-trained on production engineering. This tight vertical integration ensures that we solve problems at the most efficient level.
Our flagship product, the Ohmni Robot, is an award-winning telepresence robot that transforms how people connect, from their homes, businesses, classrooms, to hospitals.
Our Ohmni Developer Edition is based on more than 200 mature hardware and software modules. It is an affordable human-scale open platform that includes our cloud-based JS framework OhmniAPI. We offer developers, researchers, and students the ability to program Ohmni robots as easily as developing web pages. We continually extend the capabilities of the framework to allow for high-level tasks through autonomous navigation and image/audio recognition.
