Trick-or-treat is a must do activity for every kid (and some adults) on Halloween. But have you ever imagined the person answering the door is not a human but a Superhero ROBOT?! We actually made this happened on Halloween by dressing up our robots as Superman and Batman to create an unforgettable experience for trick-or-treaters. When the group of kids from the tutoring center 2 doors down came by, they were pleasantly surprised and thrilled to see custom robots answering the door.
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.
Our team is geared up and ready to exhibit at Aging2.0 OPTIMIZE in San Francisco this week on October 12-14. During the past few months, we’ve been hard at work developing innovative robotic technologies that revolutionize senior home care. We’re working with our partners, such as Home Care Assistance, on breakthrough pilot programs that incorporate our robots into the daily lives of seniors. Our robots are designed to be fun, easy-to-use, and customizable and we hope that seniors and their families and caregivers have a spontaneous and delightful time using them.
The OhmniLabs team has been busy lately working with partners to pilot test our robots in different home care agencies and retirement communities across the San Francisco Bay Area. We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to interact with elders and caregivers at these facilities, while also learning about the pain points in their daily lives.
The Heritage Pointe, an independent senior living facility in Walnut Creek, CA is one of our new test sites. We are placing our robots in a common area where elders gather for their daily activities, which allows their family members to virtually visit and join them during these activities.
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.
