We Build
Embodied Intelligence

Scalable AI models for universal robotic manipulation. Intuitively automate your most complex and tedious manual labor tasks from retail to manufacturing.

We provide a flexible and intuitive answer to your labor shortage, fitting seamlessly into human workplaces.

Our scalable foundation AI model enables truly dexterous robotic manipulation by learning from the best. Humans.

We break the scaling laws for AI in robotics by training our robots on diverse, large scale human video data. This allows us to swiftly generalize to new, unseen tasks with minimal fine-tuning



From Humans

Dexterity Made Simple

Our dexterous robotic hand hardware bridges the embodiment gap between humans and robots.

This universal robotic manipulator is designed to handle environments and tools made for humans.

Engineered to reliably handle tough work conditions just as well as fragile objects, it is the perfect platform to enable our AI models to act with human-like manipulation skills

Robots that Speak Your Language

Imagine teaching autonomous robots by showing them human workflows. Imagine commanding your robot with simple natural language commands.
We give your workforce a helping hand to be used, self determined and democratic, where they really need it.
Unparalleled flexibility and versatility allow you to simply switch between different tasks, making automation economical even for low to medium volume and temporary applications.
