Revolve Robotics is a San Francisco based partner that makes Kubi. They design smart, simple solutions to real problems with an elevated level of practicality and functionality. Kubi means “neck” in Japanese, and the Kubi robotic tablet stand gives you the freedom to interact while video conferencing. Kubi offers robotic Telepresence for Telehealth, distance learning, remote working, concierge and other applications.
Kubi makes remote education simpler and more engaging for classes, teachers and students. The Kubi Telepresence robot has a variety of K-12 and Higher Education applications in the classroom. In K-12, popular applications include homebound and remote teaching as well as observations and interventions. In HE, a hybrid/blended learning environment is a perfect fit for a Kubi. Some applications are a fit for both environments, such as a Kubi robotic cart help to keep a student engaged in classroom activities even when they can’t be physically in the classroom. A Kubi is also a great tool in professional assessment environments when physical presence is a distraction or not possible.
A Kubi is great for connecting students to classrooms and teachers across long distances.
