By Team InOrbit

Like most geeks, we’re big fans of time-travel movies and stories that allow characters to go forward or backward in time to either right past wrongs, or see historical events from a different perspective. That was part of the motivation for Time Capsule™, a new offering from InOrbit.

How Will Robots Affect the Restaurant Business?

By Team InOrbit

A dark kitchen is not where we end up in search of a midnight snack. Rather, it’s a concept for restaurants, especially in bigger cities, that eliminates the front-of-house aspect of a restaurant (dining room, tables, chairs, waitstaff) to leave only food preparation tasks. Basically, it’s a restaurant that exists only to serve carry-out or delivery orders for customers.

Meet an InOrbiter: Barbara

By Team InOrbit

At InOrbit, most of our time is spent thinking about robots and how to make them perform better. But part of that vision includes robots and humans working together – without the human factor, robots are just a collection of metal and plastic parts. Here is another in a series of posts highlighting some of the outstanding humans on the InOrbit team, also known as InOrbiters. The posts aim to share details on some of the newest members of the team, what drove them to work here, and what they find most interesting about robotics and the development of the InOrbit platform.

May the Fourth Be With You (and Your Robots)...

By Team InOrbit

It’s not a surprise to hear that many of today’s roboticists were inspired by George Lucas and the Star Wars films to create their own “droids” and intelligent machines. As the world recognizes Star Wars Day (May 4, as in “May the Fourth” be with you), we noticed some similarities between the droids in a galaxy far, far away and the ones now populating planet Earth. We also realized that much of the universe-saving that goes on in the movies rely on the assistance of these mechanized beings.

Pobody's Nerfect: Reducing Robot Failures to Scale Efficiently

By Team InOrbit

We’ve said it here before, but it’s worth repeating – robots fail, and they fail more often than you think. When companies talk about the benefits of robotics, they tend to gloss over some of the downsides of autonomous systems, especially those that work in dynamic, changing and chaotic environments. Robots get stuck, they get lost, they break down … and occasionally they even catch fire or fall down an escalator.

Clara Sanchez, Software Engineer

How did you find out about InOrbit? 

I was working as a secretary in a physical therapy office while studying computer engineering. After seeing an Instagram ad for an academy called Henry that trains programmers without charging them anything during the course (the student pays when they get a job), I studied part-time for eight months to become a full stack developer. After finishing the course, I saw an ad for InOrbit and applied to become a programmer here.
