Apptronik is an Austin-based robotics startup that specializes in the development of exoskeletons and collaborative robotics systems. The company has recently unveiled Apollo, the world’s most capable humanoid robot. Apollo stands 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. It can lift up to 55 pounds and its primary function so far is moving boxes around in warehouses. But Apollo’s just getting started. The robot is like an iPhone in that it will be able to have new applications loaded to give it new functions. And, as it learns from new data it gleans from being in new settings and getting new instructions, it is expected to perform more dexterous tasks in complex situations.
What sets Apollo apart is its human-like form, which Apptronik said will allow it to work pretty much anywhere humans work. No need to confine it to customized environments. Apptronik has been building its initial models in Austin and is in conversations with manufacturers in Texas to build out many more Apollos as demand grows.
