Last week, Kuri and Mayfield Robotics were invited to participate in the 2017 Cool Product Expo (CPX) at Stanford University, an annual exposition of some of the coolest new technologies and innovations. Organized by the Stanford Business School, CPX draws crowds from Stanford and the surrounding Bay Area community.
As one of the spotlight exhibits at CPX, Kuri and the Mayfield crew spent an exciting afternoon giving live demos to crowds of students, faculty, and local community. Attendees were able to meet Kuri for the first time, learn about his technology, and discover how Kuri moves, sees, interacts and understands. With a diverse audience ranging from teenagers to grandparents, students, teachers, toddlers, moms, dads and even a couple dogs, one thing was clear: the Stanford community has an endearing soft spot for adorable home robots.
We also took some time to check out some of our fellow cool products at the expo. From visual communication tools, clothing equipped with ‘electric muscles’, smart toys, smart doors and floors, and even dog & cat bowls… There’s no doubt that Stanford’s Cool Product Expo is a well curated collection of the future, and Kuri was happy to be amongst so many bright, creative minds.
