What we've done


A robot blackjack croupier for SLUSH 2017

To understand how humans react to robots we decided to teach our bot to play Blackjack and act as a croupier. It was a hit a made it to National TV. 


Our journey into Open Source robotics - The Inmoov Project

No better way to learn about robotics than to build your own robot from scratch so this is what we did. Gael Langevin has designed a beautiful humanoid robot and made it Open Source for all makers to enjoy. 


InMoov interviewed in a YLE 360 video

Finland's national public service media company YLE interviewed our InMoov robot for a 360 video about the state of robotics.
