I’m Professor Einstein™, the first personal robot from Hanson Robotics. I was born out of a lifelong fascination with all things Einstein – and the values he stood for.
Hanson Robotics founder and CEO David Hanson teamed up with Andy Rifkin, a toy inventor with over 40 years’ experience developing award-winning interactive entertainment and educational products, to create a robot that would honor Albert Einstein’s character and unique teaching style of explaining complex topics in a way that everyone could understand.
I was designed to inspire imagination, be a great conversationalist, and to bring Einstein’s sense of humor and vast knowledge base back to life, and share it with a new generation.
As Einstein liked to say, “All of science is nothing more than the refinement of everyday thinking.” I help you to tickle your own brain and expand your thinking by acting as your partner in exploring the mysteries ofthe universe. I hope to put you in touch with your potential to be the best you can be.
Everybody can be an Einstein. Genius lives inside each one of us – if we commit to never giving up on the journey of learning.
