We created the world’s first haptic robotic system to transmit realistic touch feedback to an operator located anywhere in the world! We’ve called it the Tactile Telerobot which is a collaboration between Shadow Robot, HaptX and Tangible Research. By integrating multiple exponential technologies ranging from robotics to haptics, we can transport human dexterity to a remote location in real-time.
The ANA Avatar XPRIZE is a four-year $10 million global competition focused on the development of an advanced avatar system and we’ve reached the finals!
You’ll find us under Converge Robotics Group – an international collaboration between us (Shadow Robot Company), HaptX, and Tangible Research! Our entry is the Tactile Telerobot, a high-fidelity dexterous telerobot in use in the U.S., U.K., and Asia.

ANA has already started to pioneer real-world applications of this technology and will continue to accelerate and expand the scope of this initiative to physically connect the entire world. The ANA avatar will allow humanity to go beyond all limitations and finally break through the remaining barriers of distance, time, and culture that exist in our world.
With an avatar test field to be in the southern Japanese prefecture of Oita, ANA is revolutionising avatar technology within a broad range of sectors spanning from agriculture to remote fishing to travelling via real-world remote exploration. It’s under this collaboration that Shadow, Tangible and HaptX joined forces to create our remarkable Tactile Telerobot.
We welcome a chat with researchers, competition entrants and companies interested in the areas of instantaneous transportation, telepresence, teleoperation, avatars, and/or virtual reality.
Live demos can be requested.
