Inventions

Mattrbot

Robotic Soft Material

Imagine a future where a material itself is a robot that can sense, actuate, compute and communicate! Mattrbot is an endeavour to invent such materials through machine learning. The custom designed robotic materials will not only revolutionize humanoids and exosuits, but also bring energy harvesting robots into existence.

Liwa

A Breathing Watch

A conscious wrist watch that is not to show time, but breath of the user. When it is put on wrist, it helps in sharing user’s breath with others while giving a sense of human bonding through non-verbal communication. When it is not on wrist, it helps in creating a bond between the user and user’s own breathing patterns.
