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. We outlined that future in one of our very first blog posts, The 10 Year Plan. Now, we’re six months into our commercial journey. […]

Part 3 focuses on community-created tools, experiments, and other inventions that provide new ways to explore the platform and use Misty’s capabilities. Each […]

Misty Gets a Lift

One of the great advantages of being a working robotics company with a shipping product and hundreds of active customers is that we get to listen to the marketplace. We have attended Microsoft Build for three years, DeveloperWeek (Austin/SF/NY) for two, and Twilio SIGNAL for one. We’ve been the number one (or among the top […]
