Integrating elegant design with artificial intelligence, Konpanion pioneers a unique direction for social robot companions and creates an entirely new species of alternative pets. Drawing inspiration from fashion, nature and art, Konpanion is a hybrid being that truly realizes the promise of form-meets-function with intelligence and grace.
Konpanion, a family of domestic social robot pets, offers an alternative and an opportunity in each of these markets, tackling key challenges and offering novel solutions. Our focus in building Konpanion as a holistic lifestyle luxury brand creates endless possibilities for expansion and adaptation through its ecosystem of integrated apps and the introduction of personalization, design options, and accessories.
Powered by a newly-developed AI architecture capable of learning and expressing meaningful emotions through body language and sound, Konpanion replicates human empathy, beautifully. Unlike robots that offer poor attempts at conversation, Konpanion plays with your senses and bonds with you through more natural, non-verbal communication.
Konpanion unveiled Maah for the Central Saint Martins degree Show the 19th of June 2018.
Maah represents a new generation of domestic robots. Is unconventional shape, mechanism, and interaction module, exists to interrogate the industry. It represents another ways of making future sentient machines, using a new range of material and technique. Finally it questions the true function of companionship, what makes us being attached to non-familiar entities. Set up as a cabinet of curiosity, the display was meant to create a critic and trigger a discussion about the actual state of domestic robot design.
Interior design is the central focus of Konpanion.
Our mission is to seamlessly integrate technology, because we believe aesthetics must rule over technicity. Sentient domestic artefacts represents a new frontier in robotics, their relations to the world and functionality needs to be challenged by our vision.
