Professor Einstein is the first personal robot from Hanson Robotics. He 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. He 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.
