Luna

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE : May 2011

RoboDynamics Headquarters, Santa Monica, CA

SchultzeWORKS designstudio (www.schultzeworks.com) of Pasadena, CA is proud to announce a breakthrough in robot design. Commissioned by RoboDynamics of Santa Monica, CA, ‘Luna’ is the world’s first personal robot integrating three unique feature sets : Luna is (1) completely expandable via expansion ports, (2) fully programmable with open standards and, above all, (3) affordable.

The industrial design work for Luna addressed dual and conflicting demands between design and engineering. The engineering challenge was to incorporate the client’s existing and proven TiLR robot hardware, firmware, and drive train. The design challenge was to create an original and compelling techno-beauty that would engage users and invite interaction.

“We conducted an exhaustive search for a design studio who could deliver exceptional design within the context of a technical and engineering challenge that is inherently entailed in bringing world’s first personal robot to market.” said Fred Nikgohar, CEO of RoboDynamics. “With SchultzeWORKS, we found a partner who has enabled our company to articulate an exceptional visual and artistic design, while simultaneously helping us mitigate the stringent technical and quality standards contained within Luna. This ability to work both within an artistic and technical framework is indeed a rare gift that Dave and his team brought to the table for us.”
