“Technology and robots are advancing faster than ever: voice assistance, pattern recognition, service robots, educational robots, industrial robots...They are designed to provide information and do repetitive work to make our life more efficient. But something crucial is missing. I have been dreaming of having a robot friend since I was a child, like R2-D2 from Star Wars, Rodney from Robots, Wall-E from the film, or Baymax from Big Hero 6." said the creator of Eilik, Shaw Yeung.
With this dream in mind, Shaw Yeung led Energize Lab team to build Eilik, a new kind of social robot that brings up a higher level of emotional social interactions between humans and robots. We hope Eilik can be your little companion and bring endless fun to your desktop.
Energize Lab has been developing robot toys and robot servos over the years. We use our core technology to give the robot driving energy. What we do is far from a certain type of robot toy, but an interactive companion. It is our mission to create robots that inject energy, happiness, and companionship into your life.
Who We Are
Funded in 2019, Energize Lab is an innovative startup made up of a team of passionate and dynamic individuals, including technology enthusiasts, designers, artists, engineers, animators, creatives, and product developers. We are also a company specializing in robotic technology and products, covering robotic servos, robotic control systems, brushless motors, and consumer robots. Together we are dedicated to exploring the integration of technology and art and creating robots with souls and endless fun.
The World We Build
700 years later, there is a distant Earth-like planet Trappist-1e. Although there is an atmosphere and liquid water on this mysterious planet, they contain toxic substances that will chronically harm the human body and make it impossible for human beings to survive there.
Scientists predict that some scarce mineral resources are concealed deep underground on this planet. So Wormhole, a company on the Earth dedicated to developing space resources, begins planning to apply robots to colonize Trappist-1e. The first batch of robots is dispatched as explorers with Hope Spacecraft to Trappist-1e. Several waves of robots land on the planet by Hope Spacecraft in the following years. Since then, Trappist-1e has been overrun with human-made robots.
All robots work repeatedly for 500 years, pointlessly under the control of the central computer in Hope Spacecraft. It is not until Eilik, a low-level security robot becomes self-aware that everything starts to change......
