Choose Maths

Teleport appeared in this video for the Choose Maths campaign, funded by the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) to encourage girls in Australia to “choose maths” in their final years of high school.

DST Scindicate

Our team took a Teleport to Defense Science Technology’s (DST) Scindicate event for DST staff from all over the country to participate and enjoy the expo, even if they couldn’t physically be there themselves.  The robots were very popular and used by many members of DST over the two-day event.

Here’s aubot engineer Sarah with a Teleport at Scindicate.

Robogals 10-Year Gala

At the 10-year Robogals Anniversary Gala on 14 July 2018, Marita appeared via Teleport to deliver a speech.  Marita was in San Francisco and the gala was in Melbourne.  Teleport and the Gala were both a huge success.

TEDxSydney

We demonstrated our first prototype of our entire V2 robot at TEDxSydney on 15 June.

Here’s our Teleport version 1 robot next to our Teleport version 2 robot at TEDxSydney.

Australian Water Association

We flew a robot from Melbourne to Brisbane to appear one stage at the Australian Water Association conference.

We had our mechanical engineer Mack from Melbourne control the robot on stage with Marita and explain the work he’s doing with our version 2 robots.

Here’s a snippet of the interaction below!

Hot Desq completed

Aubot has finished a 6-month stint in Queensland (Qld) at the Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT) Bluebox.  It was a great experience to be immersed in the Qld startup scene.  We enjoyed being welcomed into QUT’s Bluebox space.  We enjoyed contributing to the startup scene through participating in panels and giving talks throughout Brisbane, the Gold Coast and during trips to Cairns and Aurukun.  It was an amazing adventure!

Here’s a photo of kids at Aurukun State School (from all the way up north in remote Aurukun!) controlling a Teleport in our office.  Talk about the power of technology!  The teachers were so excited about using Teleports so their kids could visit museums remotely.

The Project

Missing School’s work with our robots was covered by Channel 10’s The Project.  (Starts  at 1’45).

A sensitive Santa, the Nigerian women's bobsled team, a classroom return and a long lost family – all in Carrie’s good news! ☀️
