Some of our readers will remember the Kuri home robot that we featured on the site previously, the creators of the device, Mayfield Robotics has announced that the device has been cancelled.
The company will stop making the robot and they have also revealed that the ones they have already made will not be shipped to their customers. Anyone who has paid a pre-order deposit for the device will receive a full refund.
Startup Platform. From the beginning, we have been constantly looking for the best paths to achieve scale and continue to advance our innovative technology. Typically, startups in the Bosch Startup Platform are integrated into existing Bosch business units, but after extensive review, there was not a business fit within Bosch to support and scale our business.
Since Kuri’s award-winning launch at CES 2017, our adorable home robot has been demoed and celebrated at TED, SXSW, The Aspen Ideas Festival, The Economist Innovation Summit, and many other high-profile events. It’s an understatement to say that we are all hugely disappointed by this pause to operations. We remain proud of the work we’ve done to push home robotics forward.
