Behind the Scenes at UGOBE Labs

UGOBE is a small California robotics company that develops life-like animatronic creatures which they call “Life Forms.”

Their first creation is a cute, foot-long, green dinosaur-bot named Pleo. Pleo is an autonomous robot pet which incorporates a range of environment sensors, fluid mechanical movements, and a custom made “Life OS” AI operating system which allows all these elements to work together to simulate a living creature, reacting to and learning from its environment. Far out.

I really enjoyed the videos in which Caleb Chung, the toy-creation guru and UGOBE co-founder, gives a short tour of UGOBE Labs and talks about the development of Pleo. Looks like an awesome place to work!
