Budgee™ is an affordably priced robot designed for people who need help carrying things. It has been hailed as a breakthrough for disabled and elderly people who desire an independent lifestyle.

Budgee™ is also being actively sought by people from all walks of life, including retailers, city residents, and mothers with small children. 

DASH is a Retail Robotic Shopping cart designed for the retail stores and shopping malls. It leads people through the store to their desired items, scans in the items, and allows the customer to check out without waiting in line via an onboard Point of Purchase Payment System. DASH is being developed in cooperation with several of the world’s largest retailers.
