Swedish Furhat Robotics acquires US-based company Misty Robotics

Furhat Robotics, the company behind the world’s most advanced social robot, Furhat, aquired Colorado-based social robotics startup Misty.

The acquisition establishes an American base of operations for Furhat Robotics, and will enable further expansion and development of the next-generation of social robots.

Misty Robotics, founded in 2017 by Ian Bernstein (the Co-Founder of consumer robotics company, Sphero) is the developer of Misty robot.

They built Misty as an advanced platform to provide researchers and high-end developers with all the tools required to build and test prototypes of social robot applications

Misty is an incredibly well designed and engineered robot that one falls in love with at first sight. Very likable and social, yet highly sophisticated in terms of hardware and software. There are more than 1000 Mistys out in the world, says CEO and Co-founder of Furhat Robotics, Samer Al Moubayed

Furhat Robotics will continue to support the Misty Robotics brand, and help to develop and expand the product range.

Also, they will gradually integrate Furhat and Misty technical features and SDK to bring the power of both platforms to all users.
