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.

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

Remarkable Accelerator

For the past 4 months, from 3 April – 31 July, aubot participated in the Remarkable Accelerator program.  Remarkable harnesses technology to build social and economic inclusion of people with disability. The Remarkable Accelerator program was created to encourage and foster technology companies in the disability space.  It was great to learn from and with other disability technology companies in Australia for the past few months!

Here are some photos from the final demonstration night in Sydney.

SBS Viceland The Feed

Our Teleport Brain Control continues to capture the public’s attention.  We filmed a segment with SBS Viceland’s The Feed with our friend Anthony Bartl who has been paralysed from the neck down since he was 6 and in a car accident.  He got to see the top floor of his house for the first time!

 

We also took Anthony and Teleport to the Melbourne War Memorial.
