Over the past two years, we have seen a handful of home robots in China. However, humanoid robots are yet to come to our daily lives, and Ewaybot, a humanoid robot company, focuses on the education market, not consumers, for their near-term growth.

Ewaybot’s first flagship robot MoRo will debut this week at CES in Las Vegas to get user’s feedback, seek investment, and appeal to potential buyers. MoRo is a human-size assistant robot that can grasp and handle objects, designed for academic research and education, business activities, as well as home assistance.

“Robotic market in 2020 will be huge. People will be learning, knowing, and accepting the robots. Currently, the consumer robotic market is not mature enough,” CTO of Ewaybot Weijian Shang told TechNode. “The problem is the lack of robotic talent in China and in the world. Only a few people know robot technology as a whole, and that’s why we focus on the education market. We want to partner with leading universities and many regular universities to push the robotic market bigger and bigger.”
