Behind the "Ohm" 

When you first hear “ohm”, you may first think of the mantra being chanted at the beginning and the end of yoga sessions. What you may not have know is that there are also other meanings attached to this word. Not surprisingly, each meaning fits well into our name: OhmniLabs!


  1. in Meditation -- This comes from Hinduism and Buddhism. It is considered to have high spiritual and creative power.
  2. in Science -- This is a unit of electrical resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference of one volt.
  3. in Latin -- "Omni", The ROOT-word is MONI which comes from the Latin omnis meaning ALL. 


When OhmniLabs was founded, one of the main goals was to reinvent the traditional robotics development process. We wanted to build a hardware company that was more like a software company in terms of flexibility and iteration speed. 

Looking at all three definitions, it's easy to see why "Ohm" and "Omni" is the base of our company's name! Especially, with "Omni" -- our goal with Ohmni was to ensure accessibility for families and loved ones, anywhere in the world! 

P.S. Our team members from Vietnam would also like to add that "Ohm" sounds very similar to "hug" in Vietnamese!
