Indiegogo - Reaches $1M Stretch Goal on Indiegogo, Donates Alpha 2 Robots to Research Institutions, Developers

UBTECH will select 10 robotic research institutions and developers to receive Alpha 2, the first humanoid robot for the family

Due to tremendous consumer response, UBTECH Robotics has surpassed its stretch goal of $1 million on Indiegogo for Alpha 2, the first humanoid robot designed for practical household service and companionship.Shipping publicly in Feb. 2016, Alpha 2 is a family robot capable of accomplishing a wide range of typical household tasks, including managing weekly calendars and providing verbal reminders for scheduled tasks, performing home security monitoring and alerts, and following verbal instructions.


In celebration of surpassing the stretch goal, UBTECH is donating 10 Alpha 2 robots at no cost to robotic research institutions and developers around the world. In order to promote faster development and interest in the future of humanoid robotics, the company plans to select Alpha 2 recipients based on recommendations and interactions from UBTECH's home page as well as on the scale and focus of robotics and engineering programs.

"The overwhelming response for Alpha 2 is a dream come true," says UBTECH CEO James Chow. "We have long wanted to bring the world a humanoid robot designed for the family, and clearly the world is ready."

With funding from the Indiegogo campaign, the company intends to expand its talented engineering team and to encourage feedback and interest in the Alpha 2 from the wider developer community. With both the campaign and the donation program, the company hopes to attract a community of developers who will take Alpha 2's capabilities to the next level, leveraging its open application platform and support for VAPP application development.

Educational institutions and developers interested in the donation program can get more information by registering at campaign@ubtrobot.com or visithttp://www.ubtrobot.com/en/html/archive/2015111747.html
