About
About the company
The company is a fast-growing start-up that is working on the development and mass production of a robot avatar that transmits sight, hearing and touch. Their mission is to “create a world where every single person at every corner of the planet can benefit from the robotic revolution.” The main objective is to free people from time and space constraints by using remotely operated robots to interact with the remote environment. The technology that they are applying and continuously developing was first proposed in the 1980s at the University of Tokyo by one of the current chairmans of the company. The company started in 2017 and is backed by one of Japan’s giant corporations. They have also secured partnerships with international companies like NVIDIA.

The key technologies the company works on are the combination of ultra-low latency screening, hybrid intelligent control, mobile cockpit design, and unique mechanical design. The applications the company are developing includes gaming and entertainment applications, and remote work applications.

Corporate Culture:

The fast growing start-up has a flat organizational structure that promotes the increased involvement of each and every member of the team. Since the company is rapidly developing marketable avatar robots, control cockpits, and the cloud infrastructure necessary to connect human operations with motion data, the efficiency of the team’s coordination, speed of communication and decision making process is very important. The company’s environment is very flexible but they push and motivate their employees to continuously pursue growth and development.
