NASA Ames Research Center

We are polyopticsLABs, a unique collection of scientists, engineers, technicians, designers, and artists.  We are creators and innovators​, and together we produce the most advanced biologically inspired robotics and systems in the world.

By harnessing the capabilities of neuroscience and fusing them with cutting edge electronics and the social sciences, polyopticsLABs is bringing a new level of efficiency and situational awareness to off world exploration rovers, with deductive reasoning, true to life emotions, and tools to execute their missions.

Nature has evolved truly remarkable capabilities that, when properly understood, create significant new exploration advantages.

polyopticsLABs focuses on emulating and implementing the unique locomotion and chemical, visual, and aural sensing capabilities of animals.

Welcome to the LAB.
