A few days ago, Silicon Valley robot company OhmniLabs and its open innovation platform Kambria announced that they will launch a robot for the catwalk at London Fashion Week. The robot will be wearing the costumes designed by Los Angeles designer Honee and will make its debut at the House of iKons event on September 15th and September 16th. This is the first time that London Fashion Week has ushered in the robot show.
OhmniLabs is headquartered in Silicon Valley, California, and was founded in 2015 by robotics experts Jared Go, Tingxi Tan and serial entrepreneur Thuc Vu. The main goal is to reshape robotic development technologies for home, healthcare, and business. Other fields offer more forward-looking economical robotic solutions.
Jared Go, Tingxi Tan, and Thuc Vu are high-level students in computer science who graduated from Carnegie Mellon University, Stanford University, and Calgary University. They believe that consumer robots will be everyday for people. Life has a positive impact. As a result, they founded OhmniLabs based on their extensive experience in artificial intelligence, machine learning, multi-agent systems, industrial design, electromechanical engineering, and cloud infrastructure.
The telepresence robots developed by OhmniLabs are changing the way people communicate daily. People can use the robot to communicate with family or friends whenever and wherever they want, and to experience life together. With the help of telepresence robots, people will no longer miss special occasions such as birthdays or important meetings of family or friends.
Kambria is an open innovation platform created by the OhmniLabs team in 2016. It was established to promote the development of cutting-edge robotics and to introduce blockchain technology by developing its own public chain. Solve the waste and inefficiency in the current robot development process. Kambria’s ultimate goal is to develop into an ecosystem of cutting-edge technologies that create value for billions of people around the world.
Los Angeles Designer Honee is both a fashion designer and an industrial designer whose work combines multimedia and senses with a strong social theme.
