Earlier this year, we started a pilot program with Home Care Assistance to explore the benefits of using our home robot, Ohmni, with residents of The Heritage Downtown retirement living community in Walnut Creek, CA. Many residents signed up to test Ohmni as a new way to communicate with their families and they've been enjoying our robots ever since!
From Oct. 12-14th, the OhmniLabs team had an amazing time exhibiting at Aging 2.0 OPTIMIZE and dove into the key trends at the intersection of innovation and aging through insightful bootcamps, keynotes and panels of senior care executives, visionary thought leaders and game changers.

We just got back from an amazing trip to Taiwan, where impressive technology, wonderful people and delicious food all gather at one place. We participated in the Startup Global Program (SGP), hosted by Garage+, a top Taiwan startup accelerator. There were 60 startups applying for the program from 20 different countries, and only 15 startups got selected for this excellent 2-week all-paid-for program. During those two weeks, we were connected with many investors, potential partners, suppliers, and manufacturers. We learned about the Taiwanese and broader Asian markets and participated in press conferences and demos.
