Robai and Intelitek Join Forces to Bring NASA Robotics Technology to STEM Education

Intelitek to Offer the CytonE Humanoid Robot for the Classroom

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 24, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Robai and Intelitek have launched a new line of humanoid robots—the CytonE family—for education. The size of a human arm and weighing under five pounds, each CytonE arm has seven independent axes of motion plus a gripper.

The CytonE's brains come from powerful software licensed from Energid Technologies called Actin. Actin was originally developed for NASA and is used in industrial applications including robotic oil drilling and nuclear inspection. Actin allows the arms to be easily programmed, with motion reminiscent of human arm movement in its fluidity, efficiency, and power.

Intelitek will provide a comprehensive STEM curriculum around the CytonE robots as part of this worldwide launch. "We're confident the CytonE robots will teach students STEM skills and inspire them to be engineers and scientists," said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. "Technology like the CytonE inspires creativity and imagination and accelerates learning."

"The agreement with Intelitek is important for Robai as it moves us toward our goal of making robots available to everyone," said David Askey, Chief Business Development Officer at Robai.  "We look forward to having bright students contribute to the Cyton/Actin ecosystem through their creativity and ingenuity."

"Whether automating complex assembly lines, enabling robots in space, or powering lightweight robots for STEM education, we are pleased to see Actin evolve as a general purpose operating system for the next generation of robotics," said Neil Tardella, CEO of Energid.
