The Next Generation of Companion Robots

A new paradigm of affordable robotics

Let’s be honest, there is an abundance of different “AI Companion” apps that sprung up like flowers after a long spring rainstorm. Except the rainstorm was ChatGPT, and instead of flowers, we’re left with “Chatbot” apps that are nothing more than a picture of your ‘character’ and a rip off UX of a bland messaging app. If it was 2006, this would be a pretty good compromise. These apps are like being on a grounded airplane. You have somewhere to sit, but you can’t actually go anywhere. With Ominous Industries, you have now been cleared for takeoff.

Our robots are different, very different. Designed with the sole purpose of being immersive companion robots, they stay true to their purpose. Sometimes our friends say naughty things. Sometimes we want to have a conversation that involves roleplaying. The Ominous Industries Robots can use any face and any personality, allowing your wildest fantasies to come to life before your eyes.
