Lo-Robot helps workers in Depot centers. In this kind of scenario, the workers that are not helped by robot generally lift and carry a lot of weight in a day. The goal of the robots here is to alleviate a part of the burden. By providing robots that are precisely designed as being at the height of an average Korean worker (this could be personalized depending on the market) and following workers or set on an independent track, Hills Robotics makes the workers’ life a bit easier.

We were surprised to see how much experience in the domain the team had. This led to careful design of their robot, and this is what we like to see when we are talking to startups. We hope they will keep up the good work.

The goal here is to provide a little bit of structure to the stories but let the children be as imaginative as they can be. They will provide the background, the characters, the scripts and all the thing needed to create a story and then an AI will generate the rendering as video.

While the app was pretty simple and not as personalizable as we thought when we heard the idea, It’s still an amazing product. Children finally have a tool to work on their imagination and story-telling skills.

While talking to one employee in the company, he did a demonstration of their vaccum cleaner.
