BUDDY : Your Family’s Companion Robot


Today, crowdfunding begins for BUDDY, the world’s first affordable companion robot. BUDDY’S campaign seeks to raise $100,000 and will last 35 days, with funds going towards bringing BUDDY to mass market.

At heart, BUDDY is a friendly companion. BUDDY entertains and educates, makes video calls & sends messages to family & friends, acts as your calendar and alarm clock and monitors your home. BUDDY augments the care of younger, older and less mobile people by providing companionship and help with day to day activities.

With BUDDY, carers can use video to check in remotely with their loved ones. Additionally, BUDDY is an open-source technology platform, meaning that developers across the world can collaborate to build software and hardware for BUDDY.

Rodolphe Hasselvander, creator of BUDDY, says: “It’s been a long time dream of mine to bring a companion robot to mass market. BUDDY is the manifestation of this dream: a friendly robot that helps with day to day life, but also boasts the latest in robotics technology. I’m excited to bring it to the crowdfunding community today.”
