Dual-Mode Humanoid Robots


Avatar technology is a full-size humanoid robot controlled wirelessly by a remote operator equipped with a compact on-body interface. The avatar transports your human senses and physical ability to a remote location in real-time. The avatar is also capable of independent behavior including conversational use and teachable tasks.

Status: Functional prototype done (complete task-capable avatar-operator system with vision, 2-way audio, neck/arm/end-effector motion control, general mobility, integrated head-mounted interface, control suit). Pilot prototype in active development.

Zero Commute

In seconds, wear the operator interface then link to your avatar that is already where you need to be. Less driving to work and back, even for physical jobs. More freedom to live and work where you want. Save time and reduce commute exhaustion. The future of work-from-home.

Perfect Safety

Your avatar is a second body that is repairable and replaceable. Work in hazardous environments with complete personal health-and-safety from afar. More confidence to work without personal risk or worry. The future of workplace safety.

A-Z Automation

Teach your avatar how to perform many simple tasks from start to finish by doing the task through its body, moving it manually, or downloading the skill from our avatar-skill library. Finally, basic tasks can be completely automated. More time to do what you really want. The future of versatile robotics.

Global Reach

Access avatars around the world to provide critical help regardless of distance. Multiply your impact with sequential and semi-simultaneous multi-avatar control. Team up with other operators and visit anywhere through the physical internet. Convenient opportunities to be a real hero.

Immersive Learning

Train with real-time visual cues, automatic assistance, automatic error prevention, and shared avatar control with expert teachers. The future of learning-by-doing.

About Us

We understand the possibility space. We care about systems that work. We value truth, efficiency, and real-world consequences.

Knowledge Base

Information drives every thought, decision, and action. In our increasingly complex world where logic and trust are hard to weave confidently, it is easy to be misled by noise, incur unknown risks, and waste valuable resources. Truth is the fundamental solution.
