Introducing the Misty Solution Hub

A little less than three years ago, Misty Robotics emerged from the skunkworks lab at Sphero, became a separate entity, and started pursuing its own unique vision of a robotic future.

This acknowledgment was a clear disappointment for our backers and for us, as it’s a promise broken. Companies lose the opportunity to build trust and relationships every […]
