About

Our children grow up in a world full of technology, but how do they learn to assess and use it properly?

Unsere Kinder wachsen in einer Welt voller Technologie auf, aber wie lernen sie diese richtig einzuschätzen und anzuwenden?

To answer this question we created our first book "Superhero Glasses" in which Roboy & Lucy help a child from the autistic spectrum to connect to society through Superhero glasses invented by Catalin Voss in Stanford. 

Um diese Frage zu beantworten, haben wir unser erstes Buch "Der Nachbar mit der Magischen Brille" erstellt, in dem Roboy & Lucy einem autistischen Kind helfen sich einfacher in die Gesellschaft zu integrieren. Dank einer speziellen Brille, entwickelt von dem Erfinder Catalin Voss, ist es dem autistischen Kind möglich Emotionen seiner Mitmenschen zu erkennen und dadurch besser mit ihnen zu interagieren.

Roboy & Lucy are stories of two young friends exploring the world together. Being adventurous and curious they discover problems that we have not yet managed to solve as humanity, and then they go on a search for a young innovator that uses technology to tackle this problem.

These innovators are young, driven and motivated individuals that actually exists in the real world and push to solve the problem with their technology. This way our two friends find relatable young heroes that prove that technology can be used responsibly and for the good - and can even make them their personal idols to grow up with.  

Die Roboy & Lucy Geschichten erzählen von zwei jungen Freunden, die gemeinsam die Welt erkunden. Abenteuerlustig und neugierig entdecken die beiden Probleme, die wir als Menschheit noch nicht gelöst haben und machen sich anschließend auf die Suche nach einem jungen innovativen Menschen, der mit Hilfe von Technologie dieses Problem löst. 

Dies sind junge und motivierte Innovatoren, die tatsächlich in der realen Welt existieren und sich bemühen, das Problem mit ihrer Technologie zu lösen. Auf diese Weise finden unsere beiden Freunde junge Helden, die beweisen, dass ihre Technologie verantwortungsbewusst und zum Guten eingesetzt werden kann und wachsen mit ihnen als Vorbilder auf.

Roboy & Lucy is not just for children: Can you gauge the impact of AI on our society or your business? Have you really grasped its potential? Can you tell science fact from science fiction? It‘s hard.

Technology is moving at such a breath-taking speed, that what was inconceivable yesterday, might transform society tomorrow. Roboy & Lucy explain complex concepts in an easy and applicable way. That‘s great for children, but for beginners and executives just as well. 

Roboy & Lucy ist nicht nur für Kinder: Können Sie die Auswirkungen von KI auf unsere Gesellschaft oder Ihr Unternehmen abschätzen? Haben Sie ihr Potential wirklich erkannt? Können Sie Science Fact von Science Fiction unterscheiden? Es ist gar nicht so einfach.

Die Technologie bewegt sich in einer atemberaubenden Geschwindigkeit, was gestern noch unvorstellbar war, könnte die Gesellschaft schon morgen verändern. Roboy & Lucy erklären komplexe Konzepte auf einfache und anwendbare Weise. Das ist großartig für Kinder, aber auch für Laien und Vorstände.

Roboy & Lucy is inspired by a real robot: The Roboy Project is doing basic research in robotics towards the goal of building robots as good as the human body. The project‘s insights will not only make robots more capable and natural to interact with but also teach us how to build better prosthetics & exoskeletons.   

Roboy & Lucy ist von einem echten Roboter inspiriert: Das Roboy-Projekt betreibt Grundlagenforschung in der Robotik mit dem Ziel, Roboter so gut wie den menschlichen Körper zu bauen. Die Erkenntnisse des Projekts helfen dabei nicht nur die Interaktion mit Robotern zu verbessern, sondern zeigen auch, wie wir bessere Prothesen und Exoskelette bauen können. 

We don't just accept any project: In 2015 the UN accepted 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the world. To be a good candidate for Roboy & Lucy, a project has to use technology to significantly further these goals.  

Roboy & Lucy ist nicht einfach jedes Projekt: Im Jahr 2015 akzeptierten die Vereinten Nationen 17 nachhaltige Entwicklungsziele für die Welt. Jedes Projekt, das Technologie einsetzt, um diese Ziele deutlich voranzutreiben, ist ein guter Kandidat im Roboy & Lucy Kontext.

The "Superhero Glasses" story, for example, goes in line with Goal 8: "Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all". 

The aim is to achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value by 2030.

Die Geschichte von der  „Der Nachbar mit der Magischen Brille“ steht beispielsweise im Einklang mit dem Ziel 8: „Förderung von integrativem und nachhaltigem Wirtschaftswachstum, Beschäftigung und menschenwürdiger Arbeit für alle“.

Bis 2030 ist das Ziel, Vollbeschäftigung und menschenwürdige Arbeit für alle Frauen und Männer, auch für junge Menschen und Menschen mit Behinderungen, sowie gleiches Entgelt für gleichwertige Arbeit zu erreichen.


Risks and challenges

The story and comics script are finished in both – English and German language, storyboards are confirmed, and coloured illustrations are currently in production, we will keep our backers updated. We also have selected a book production company according to our requirements to the hardcover version of the book.

We have been working with an outside illustrator for more than six months and have reached an agreement with them for the rest of the work on the project. They have already developed our characters, storyboard, and is currently engaged working on the final illustrations. However, as an outside party, we do run the risk of losing them to other projects.

There could be publishing or manufacturing delays on the book or merchandise due to unforeseen circumstances. We will keep all Kickstarter participants informed about the publication and shipping process.
