The Business Times recently interviewed OhmniLabs Co-founder and CPO, Tingxi Tan, who discussed the possible state of robotics after the pandemic.
Tan Tingxi, chief product officer and co-founder of OhmniLabs, says the current global situation has resulted in surging interest in the firm’s telepresence robots.
“You can think of telepresence as video calls on wheels, but it is more than that. The human-height of the unit, the tilting neck that allows the user to change his perspective… it all makes the experience more emotive and natural. And it beats paying neighbours to keep an eye on your family when you are far away!” says the Singaporean chief product officer and co-founder of OhmniLabs, a Silicon Valley-based telepresence robotics company.
