Ian Bernstein

Misty Robotics
Founder & Head of Product
Being homeschooled in New Mexico left Ian with a lot of time to explore. He became fascinated by taking things apart, examining them, and building new things – mostly robots. He built robot after robot. Some of his robots flashed their lights, some could make sounds, others could move around. He started sharing his creations online, and eventually at robotics conventions. When the iPhone came out, Ian teamed up with his friend Adam to create a robotic ball controlled by your phone. That ball became known as Sphero, an educational toy used in over 10,000 schools. They went on to create BB-8, the lovable, remote-controlled robot modeled after the one that starred in Star Wars, which became among the highest selling robots in the world.

But he wanted a robot that was more than a toy. Ian imagined a robot that was friendly and helpful, and a community that would span the world. And that’s how Misty Robotics was born. Misty is a robust and technologically sophisticated platform that democratizes access to building for robots. Let’s figure out how robots will be used in our lives.
