Kambria Tries To Combine Robotics and Blockchain
In our Quick reviews series we introduce interesting initial coin offering projects that might inspire you to do your own research and decide whether an idea and its development is worth your investment. It's not an endorsement.
Today we are looking at Kambria.
What problem(s) does it target?
Kambria is a distributed innovation platform working towards creating a collaborative ecosystem for development and advancement of next-generation robotic technology. The platform's goal is to redesign the robotics industry to enable it to deliver more affordable consumers robotics technology with more efficiency, ease and at ten times the speed compared to the existing systems.
The project is an open robotics platform that is similar to Android or Linux but would include both hardware and software components. Over time, the team aims to grow the platform into a network of thousands of repositories, spanning across many technology verticals, not just robotics.
Who the team members are?
The project is comprised of a team of at least 9 members. Core team members include: CEO Dr. Thuc Vu, serial entrepreneur with multiple company acquisitions, the last one by Google; Jared Go, also CTO of OhmniLabs; Tingxi Tan, also a co-founder of OhmniLabs. All three are co-founders of Kambria. Blockchain venture capital firm Hashed has invested in the project.
At what stage the project is?
Voting is live for testing, and they are working on Open Innovation, as well as building Kambria Beta.
