I’ve had a great three years at Sandia National Laboratories, learning a lot about developing systems with the rigger to know that they’ll work the first time, getting seriously into FPGA programming and recently becoming an expert in electronics design for manufacturing (DFM). I am immensely grateful to the people who have taught me along the way.
Now I am excited to be heading back into robotics full time at Anki.
Anki builds products that are used by real people that include robotics technology to behave the way you want them too, not just the way physics says. Right now it’s semi-autonomous toy race cars that blur video games and board games. I describe it as the wizards’ chess version of Mario Kart. Keep an eye out for more clever objects in the future.
