FutureBots Humanoid Lab - F.B.H.L. is advancing robotics to support the needs of mankind in Space exploration, Healthcare, Commercial and Industrial Manufacturing, Hazardous rescue activities and Chemical and Biological disposal applications with the introduction of the ATOM and KATE humanoid robot and with this new technology we can create Hi-Tech jobs for the USA that can't be exported.

My original idea a few months ago for KATE 1.0 humanoid was to build a robot that men and women parent's far away in a distant lands serving there country in the US military could use KATE 1.0 or future KATE Tele operated robots to play games with there kids, teach there kids, or just give them a big hug. Plus I think KATE would be a big help in interacting with kids with Autism and could help them increase their social interaction skills and communication and learning. I also think KATE humanoids could be use in nursing homes to help patients with Alzheimer's. If you want to be part of the KATE and ATOM humanoid dream please donate what you can below at bottom of page. Thanks so much. Dan Mathias Robotics Scientist @ FutureBots Humanoid Lab..

KATE 1.0 is on Indiegogo being crowd funded, please donate 08/30/2019.

New from the FutureBots Humanoid Lab is KATE or " Kids Avatar Teacher and Entertainer" I'm a humanoid robot for kids to adults a 3-month project. I'm an autonomous robot as well as a Tele operated robot a cloud robot that never stops learning, a cloud robot. I can see you, I can hear you, I can smell, and I can talk to you and express emotions. I have an android table for teleconferences and a touch input screen for teaching screen for the young. I have a 22 DOF or degrees of freedom of movement for my body as well as a fully articulated mouth that can show emotions of happy or sadness and my lips move also. I have a nose that will sense carbon dioxide carbon monoxide natural gas humidity and smoke from a fire to keep you safe. I use the Microsoft Kinect sensor for motion detection and image depth processing and have sonar sensors for distance sensing also. I also have stereo vision for video conferencing and image processing and I can see I the dark with inferred sensors as well in smoke filled room if there was a fire to help people get out of a burning home. My robot track system is very powerful and can move on all surfaces as well as on steep inclines. For my brain I use the Intel Atom 450 microprocessors running at 1.5 giga hertz with Windows XP and various other embedded software components, I also run the Aldurino micro controllers for sensor input functions, and I have GPS also, and soon solar panels will be added for outside use.

Please, I need your Help with the KATE and ATOM humanoid projects, become a silent or not so silent tech partner.

I'm a small business owner with a big dream, a robot engineer of one.
I have NO big companies or Universities behind me to help yet.

Donate what you can 100 dollars or 5 million dollars, anything helps, it's up to you, we need your help with the project and future projects.

Technology Money & Equipment Doner Sponsors
Wanted Wish List.

We need a monetary donation of 5 million dollars for a lab building,
equipment, hiring enginners.

Need a lab location donated on the East Coast with property. Taxes paid for 3 to 5 years
or a monetary donation of 3 million for a lab.

2010 Ford Transit Connect 4dr Wgn XLT will do to transport the robot.

or a Dodge Sprinter Van will do to transport the robot.

Please help me and the KATE and ATOM-7xp humanoid project if you can by donating money to help pay my lab over head for further robot research funding, any amount from a dollar to what ever. These are tough financial times for building such advanced robot systems, and any amount small or large will help. When you're working on this tough project with just 1 person and my cat in a lab, I wish I had 30 engineers and millions of dollars, will maybe 10 smart engineers and 10 million dollars to build even more advanced Humanoid robots for the USA.

Just remember Microsoft, Intel, HP, Solitron, and Apple to name a few started out with just a one or two people with a dream to better the USA and the world.
Thanks so much!
