Misty II robot now on sale

BOULDER — Misty Robotics Inc., a Boulder-based spinoff of Sphero Inc., has made its Misty II robot available for purchase by the general public.

The professional-grade programmable robot, which has business, educational, research and personal applications, had previously been available only to supporters of Misty’s past crowdfunding efforts. 

“We’re mass producing them now and have shipments coming into our distribution center every week,” Misty Robotics CEO Tim Enwall told BizWest. “We’re open for business without constraints.”

The company began shipping robots — about 450 in total — to crowdfunding supporters in September.

“It’s been great watching some of the amazing things [the early recipients of Misty II] have started to build,” he said.

Applications for the robot range from home inspections to environmental monitoring to autism-care therapy.

Now that Misty II is widely available for purchase, the firm is focused on “working with our developer customers to enable them to build robot solutions that can go into the health-care market, the service market, the hospitality and retail markets,” Enwall said. “We are 100 percent focused on enabling all of the software capabilities that people are going to need in order for Misty II to be very productive out in society. We’re listening to all of the people out there who are trying to solve problems with robots.”

Misty II retails for $3,199, and products are generally shipped within a week of being ordered. 

“There are more than 23 million developers around the world, and they are the key to unlocking the future of robots, previously only available to the world of roboticists,” Misty Robotics founder and head of products Ian Bernstein said in a prepared statement. “For the price of a computer, developers can bring their code to life and free it from the 2D world of a browser. We’ve already seen some of our crowdfunding backers start to solve real world problems. The possibilities are really endless, and we are excited to see what they build next.”
