At ConnectEd Studios we had the pleasure of visiting the workshop of Marek Michalowski, a co-founder of BeatBots. BeatBots is the robotic design studio behind the Keepon, and creates dynamic robotic characters for therapy, research, education, and entertainment.
Beatbots and Wow! Stuff are partnering to convert Beatbot’s Keepon robot into a robotic toy that sells for $40 and will be available for the 2011 Christmas gift season.
“A percentage of the profit from each My Keepon toy will go towards subsidizing BeatBots’ research-grade robots to therapists and researchers,” said Wow! Stuff head of inventor relations Graham Taylor.
