Moley – The World’s First Robotic Kitchen Chef

The highly advanced, fully functional robot, using our Shadow Dexterous Hands, is integrated into a beautifully designed, professional kitchen, and cooks with the skill and flair of a master chef. The robot can do everything from assembling and chopping all the ingredients, cooking on the hob, or putting food in the oven, and finishing up by cleaning the dirty pans.

Prof Tickle – The Amorphous Dexterous Snake Arm Robot

This project provides consultancy to the prestigious University College London (UCL) and OC Robotics to create ‘Prof Tickle’ – a heroic snake-arm robot with our Dexterous Hand on the end. Capable of moving into difficult and inaccessible places, the results demonstrate the robot’s ability to perform dexterous tasks across large distances. Why the name? Well, it pays homage to the project’s inspiration Mr Tickle from the Mr Men children’s books. Like the character, the unique robot extends its arms to reach and perform everyday tasks. It’s featured on BBC Earth Lab (03:52-6:18).

How to Build a Bionic Man – Built Exclusively for Channel 4

Conceived as a literal response to the question: how close is bionic technology in catching up with – and even exceeding – the capabilities of the human body? Shadow takes on the role as a technical consultant for the project, responsible for designing the bionic man and the integration of parts from high-end manufacturers. The consultancy project captures immense media attention, later unveiling as an exhibit at London’s Science Museum.
