About Elysium Robotics

We are building a robotic arm to do what only humans can do today, but at a lower cost. Our unique advantage is replacing electric motors with our patented artificial muscles, allowing for unprecedented dexterity with low weight and low power. Combining high-dexterity with the current advances in AI will unleash the robotics revolution.

Problem statement

Mega industries depend on manual labor to deliver their products or services. They are experiencing unprecedented labor shortages and fierce competition. They know they must automate to survive global competitiveness, but there is a huge gap between the capabilities of current robotic systems and human labor.

Elysium solves THE fundamental problem holding back the robotics revolution: Actuation.
Through our innovative muscle-like actuators, we can build robots with human-level dexterity that are lightweight and, therefore, safe for human collaboration. By giving robots dexterous fingers, we extend their capabilities in automation environments, increasing their value. And because of the low cost of our systems, we reduce their total cost of ownership. Together, this greatly increases the ROI of robotic systems and enables massive-scale deployment.

In the short term, we will provide our 'Robots as a Service' to address low-skilled occupations that demand fine motor skills, such as fruit packing and machine tending. In the long term, we will integrate our robotic hands with generative AI to automate higher-skilled tasks like assembly, manufacturing and beyond.

Other opportunities include prosthetics, were our muscle-like actuators enable fully dexterous bionic hands that are lightweight, silent, low-cost, and uniquely personalized to each individual.

Traction information

1. Solved a DARPA problem by demonstrating muscle-like actuator modules that enable high-dexterity robotic hands.
2. Experts in robotics, defense, automation, and prosthetics are repeatedly blown away by the disruptive potential of our technology, including Eric Krotkov@DARPA/Toyota, Jerry Pratt@Figure Ai, Aaron Flores@Hanger Clinic, and Will Jackson@Engineered Arts - “Artificial muscles are the holy grail of robotics.”
3. Engaging with FESTO to supply them actuation modules, supported by Hanger Clinic for NIH SBIR, and supported by a strong core of advisors including seasoned founders (Naveen Rao/Nervana+Mosaic), the Global Head of HP’s Emerging Compute Lab (M. Anthony Lewis) and experienced entrepreneurs (Kevin Przybocki from CF).
