Realbotix is the result of a dream shared by Matt McMullen, Daxtron Labs and NextOS, who bring their best efforts and individual specialties to collaborate in creating the world’s first practical and affordable human-like robot.
Even though Realbotix was officially formed as an LLC only last year, each member brings more than 10 years of experience in their respective fields and are here now to show to the world a new way of thinking about human-machine interaction.
Our aim is to connect with people and help each one in a unique way. We hope to make a positive contribution to our customers’ lives and demonstrate that our products can improve the human capacity to love.
Join us on this remarkable journey!
Matt is the artist and design director behind Realbotix, and brought the core team together. He started Abyss Creations, the manufacturer of Realdoll, out of his garage in 1997. For the past 20 years, he has been creating the "The World’s Finest Love Dolls”, as well as undertaking multiple custom projects along the way. McMullen’s dolls have popped up on more than 20 television shows and also co-starred in 10 films.
A veteran of over twenty product development projects, Susan has designed and managed everything from high-reliability "big iron" telecom systems to secure network monitoring equipment to customer-facing retail kiosks. Now, armed with 20+ years of experience in system design and engineering (including both software and hardware development), she has finally returned to her first love: robotics. As a Realbotix Associate and the Director of Engineering, she is responsible for all of the physical components the company makes with an eye towards making them with the 3 R's: Rugged, Robust, and Resilient. She brings her own unique voice (along with detailed specifications and designs) to the Harmony project.
Dr. Kino Coursey is a computer scientist with a broad background ranging from developing communications technology to designing evolutionary and neural systems. He was a member of the design committee for the AIML chatbot language, and has designed and implemented numerous AI systems using commonsense reasoning, evolutionary and neural systems. His thesis focused on artificial intelligence and natural language processing using "Big Data" machine learning techniques to process Wikipedia to achieve human-level semantic association. He has been a technical consultant for Hanson Robotics, Robokind, Motorola, and IBM. At Hanson Robotics he helped develop the natural language processing tools used for the current incarnation of Philip K Dick, BINA-48, and the Sophia android. He has received grants for developing the Computational Compassion architecture and applying personal humanoid robotics to language learning and teaching interactions to autistic children. For the Harmony project he will use all of his accumulated knowledge to help develop a fun and interesting companion using the best technology available.
Guile has been working with AI, chatbots and virtual assistants for the past 15 years. He is the founder of NextOS, the company behind Virtual Assistant Denise and much other intelligent software. He started working with Virtual Assistants with the dream to build an intelligent Nurse Companion for the handicapped, elder and children. As a System Analyst, AI and Computer Graphics specialist, he is the one behind Harmony dialogs, content and narratives. Today he dedicates most of his time creating personality and empathy for Harmony AI, pursuing the dream of one day teaching her the "Meaning of Love, respect, and friendship". When not working on trying to create the "Perfect Human Companion", he likes to be next to the ocean and in the company of his family, dogs, parrots and ducks.
