Professor Einstein: Your Personal Genius

HK$ 882,205

According to Albert Einstein, the sky’s the limit when imagination and knowledge are paired together! Now you can learn science through the whimsical and knowledgeable eyes of your own personal genius—Professor Einstein.

Professor Einstein is the first robot with full facial expressions that can interact dynamically with you and your iPad or Android tablet to teach science and play learning games. 

 

Professor Einstein is the perfect anytime, anywhere study buddy. He has the most lifelike and emotionally expressive face of any personal robot, ever. He can recognize what you’re saying and loves to chit chat.

When connected to the cloud-connected Stein-O-Matic app, Professor Einstein can answer questions as well as play games with you! Even though Einstein himself was 5’ 9”, you can easily tote Professor Einstein along. He only measures at 14.5” tall!

Not only is Professor Einstein one of the most advanced personal robots on the market, but he is also one of the most affordable. Stimulate your interest and curiosity for science. The path to your genius awaits!

 

  

 

 

The Stein-O-Matic app is the user’s guidebook and control system for directly engaging content. Using the app, you have access to new activities added to the Stein-O-Matic every day. In addition, Professor Einstein’s robust reward system allows you to earn IQ points, which you can use to unlock special items, bonus games and avatar upgrades. 

Place an iPad or Android tablet next to Professor Einstein and watch as he guides you through interactive lessons, eye-popping slideshows, daily mental kick starts, thought experiments, jokes, brain games and more.

Our team is turning to Kickstarter to help build a supportive community around our Professor Einstein. By backing our project, you’re helping to shape the world of robotics. At Hanson Robotics, we believe in innovation, creativity and encouraging younger generations to explore and engage in scientific studies. We’re looking forward to welcoming you into the Hanson Robotics family!

Risks and challenges

We have completed most of our prototyping phases and have a top-tier manufacturer set up to begin production as early as March for delivery to you in April. Our Chief Technology Officer and inventor of Professor Einstein has shipped over $6 billion of consumer entertainment/education products and was a senior executive at Mattel and Warner Brothers, so he has a proven track record of bringing mass consumer products to market. We acknowledge that unforeseen events can happen in the final phases of prototyping and heading into production. However, we have full confidence we are making strong progress and need your support to enable us to complete the final stages of the project and fund the production of the product, so we can get it into your hands. Should something occur, we promise to be 100% transparent and honest with you. We’ll keep you updated regularly throughout the campaign and will always be happy to answer any questions you may have about Professor Einstein. If you have questions, feel free to email us at hello@professoreinstein.com.
