“Brightening the Future through Robotics”

Just as we connect modules with different functions to make something new,
when we connect different people together, we can develop new interpersonal relationships in a creative world!
LUXROBO will make innovative connections smarter, simpler, and more convenient!

My dream when I was young was to build a Mars Rover. Having made robots in pursuit of that dream, today I am running a startup called LUXROBO. LUXROBO is a combination of the words lux (unit of light) and robot. This symbolizes LUXROBO’s aspiration to make the future smarter and brighter through robotics.

LUXROBO has developed a semiconductor operating system (OS) that can control robots in a stable and organic way. We also have robot-based technologies such as three-stage compression telecommunications technologies, virtualization parameters, and multi-compile technologies, which makes affordable semiconductors comparable to high-end models.

Using these technologies, we created a small modular robot called MODI in 2014. MODI is a modular robot software toolkit that allows young students to make anything they want. Children can naturally learn how a robot works as well as basic science and coding, while having fun playing with the toolkit. Small MODI, which can make a big difference in children’s futures, has been adopted by educational institutions in 50 countries around the world, including the Busan Metropolitan City Office of Education as a software toolkit. With MODI, we are contributing to realistic software education and unleashing children’s potential. That’s not all for LUXROBO! We are also putting a lot of effort into R&D to expand into the IoT business based on MODI’s success. In the future, Luxrobo will continue to move forward like we first planned! With all our determination and young energy, we endeavor make the future brighter through robotics.

Thank you.
