AvatarMind was founded in 2014. Our vision is to create highly capable, humanoid robots that are affordable for ordinary families, not just institutions.
The company was founded by a group of entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley, PhDs from top universities, and robot experts from robotic companies. We have an experienced research team with deep experience in artificial intelligence, motion control, sensors and power management technologies.
AvatarMind are the makers of iPAL® Robot. The iPAL has face and voice recognition software that lets it respond to and interact with people. Plus it’s got a built-in 6-inch Android tablet that may come complete with games and calendar software for alerts or medication reminders.
iPAL is a teacher for children with spoken language learning and tablet-based educational programs, providing educational content in an engaging manner that supports social development and encourages interest in science and technology.
iPAL also makes education fun and appealing for children. It can talk, dance, tell stories, play games, encourage physical activity, and enable them to chat with friends, share videos, and safely connect to the internet and social media.
Many elders are alone and lonely. They often have problems keeping track of everyday activities, such as taking their medicine. iPAL is a constant companion that supplements personal care services and provides security with alerts for many medical emergencies such as falling down.
An example is a chain of children’s stores where iPAL greets children when they come in the door, entertains them, tells them about products, etc. Another is as a concierge/greeter in hotels to provide guests with a higher level of personal service.
