Our value proposition
We offer the fastest, cheapest, easiest and most compelling way to get skilled up in robotics.
To skill up 1 billion people in robotics and AI so we all have jobs in the future.
We make robotics extremely exciting and easy to learn.
We stimulate curiosity in robotics and then convert that curiosity to obsession.
We put on a spectacular event that makes robotics exciting:
A battle race in the desert, between autonomous cars.
We offer courses, that let you build self driving cars in 1 day (for small ones), or 20 days (for real cars), that you can then battle in the desert. The cars are very cheap: toy cars from $300-$8,000, real cars as cheap as $2,000.
Our main physical product is a development platform for universities (undergraduate and post docs). It allows you to build autonomous systems, like cars, drones, and industrial robots.
Attached to this product are:
1 day course:
5,000 students 2018
full university classes in mechatronics (150 hours).
1,500 students for 2018
Major course (300 hours with a real car):
200 students for 2018
SDK and great examples that make it easy to get up and running.
Use this hardware to run real cars at our high octane events
25,000+ in person spectators for 2018,
10,000,000+ spectators via streaming/online video
