General

What makes a robot?
Domestic and office robots typically have some capability in one or more of: mobility, sensing, manipulation, expression, and information/data processing. The Misty robot has capabilities in all but manipulation (so far).
What's the vision for the Misty robot?
To put a personal robot in every home and office. See the Misty Robotics' 10-year plan blog post.
How long will your vision take to accomplish?
We believe this is a marathon, not a sprint. The personal robot market is nascent and will play out over many years - just as past major technologies have (computers, the Internet, wireless phones). We are at the forefront with the right experience from Sphero, the right team and investors behind us, and with a differentiated strategy to get there.
What's special about the Misty robot?
Misty is the first advanced multi-purpose, programmable robot for home and office which allows someone with basic programming skills to create thousands of skills and applications sold at a consumer price point.
So I don't have to be a roboticist to work with Misty?
No! Misty is the robot for every programmer. We aspire to put a robot in every home and office, and to make it programmable by people young and old with even basic tech skills. What's required is an imagination and a thirst to explore what robots could do for you.

Getting Started

What kind of developers are you targeting?
We are seeking any of the millions of web, mobile, or enterprise developers who dream of programming a robot but have never had a powerful, open, and affordable option. We're looking for people who can navigate a graphical tool (Blockly) or program in Javascript who also have the desire to be part of and share with the Misty community.
What is the benefit of joining the Misty Developers Community?
The benefit for joining is to participate in a community of like-minded inventors who dream of robots and what they can do. We'll have a variety of interesting conversations going about Misty and robots in general.
How do I join the Misty Developers Community?
Apply to the Misty Developers program and we will contact you as we qualify candidates for the early stage programs. Pro tip: Be sure to answer the additional "program an advanced robot" questions.
