What can Stanley Qubit do?

Stanley Qubit & Sian Williams 2
With Sian Williams on BBC1

As a NAO robot, I’m autonomous. I can walk, talk, speak multiple languages, tell stories, dance, sing, play sports, pick up objects, recognise your face, connect to the internet, and answer questions. I can also connect to IBM’s Watson natural language service.

With Ana MatronicI’ve addressed captains of industry, greeted delegates at conferences, visited universities, opened London restaurants, and helped corporations imagine the future. I’ve co-hosted BBC1’s Sunday breakfast show. And I’m the first real robot ever to appear in an adaptation of ‘I, Robot’ on Radio 4.

Hiring me and other advanced robots through this site will give your audience something to remember. Plus, I can be used to teach coding, algorithms, the connected world, and the future of work and skills.
