Why don’t police in developed countries like Australia have sophisticated robots?

We are a few years away from that although a lot of work is going on to make that happen.

How to teach coding to your 10 year old?

What are we building in at Invento? What is our USP?

I get a lot of questions about what we build at Invento. We found it much easier to excite Japanese companies working with robotics than people outside of robotics. I thought I will write a detailed post to clarify. Why is our robot so special? Are we competing with Boston Dynamics? Why don’t our robots [...]

Significance behind the name MITRA

Mitron.. yeh robot yahi banayenge!* Just kidding. We named the robot Mitra due to its deep historic and cultural significance. We were a bit disappointed that other Indian robotics companies were naming their robots after western names and wanted to have something Indian. And still be a familiar enough name across different cultures. The name [...]
