Robot, Hanson Robotics
Professor Einstein™ is the first personal robot from Hanson Robotics. He was born out of a lifelong fascination with all things Einstein - and the values he stood for. Hanson Robotics founder and CEO David Hanson teamed up with Andy Rifkin, a toy inventor with over 40 years' experience developing award-winning interactive entertainment and educational products, to create a robot that would honour Albert Einstein's character and unique teaching style of explaining complex topics in a way that everyone could understand. Professor Einstein™ was designed to inspire imagination, be a great conversationalist, and to bring Einstein's sense of humour and vast knowledge base back to life, and share it with a new generation. Professor is an amazingly expressive humanoid robot who plays games to improve memory and teaches science. He loves to discuss the mysteries of the universe, maths, the weather, famous people and anything in-between! As Einstein liked to say, “All of science is nothing more than the refinement of everyday thinking.” Everybody can be an Einstein. Genius lives inside each one of us - if we commit to never giving up on the journey of learning.
