Ally is building a dead-simple, no-code robot arm – Yahoo! Voices

“Both my dad and mom had their own business,” Ally Robotics founder and CEO Mitch Tolson tells TechCrunch. “My mom had a sign company. Every single weekend and nights during the week, I was installing neon signs, welding up frames, digging trenches, holes for electrical, all of it.”
The executive says those formative years on construction sites were part of the inspiration behind the Washington-based startup’s formation. The central conceit behind the company is simple enough: What if we could train robots more like we train people?
The company, which pitched today onstage in Startup Battlefield at TechCrunch Disrupt, has developed a combination hardware and software solution designed to make it easier to deploy these automated solutions for those without coding/robotics experience. The perfect example is Ally’s first major partner, Miso Robotics. The company behind the Flippy robotic fry chef signed a $30 million letter of intent to adopt Ally’s technology. That’s a big win at this early stage.
The startup has also raised $4.7 million in crowdfunding, along with a $6.1 million Series A led by Joe Rodriguez of Pancho Ryan LLC. The company is currently in development for its robot arms, with plans to begin manufacturing late next year. Beyond the already announced Miso deal, the company has additional letters of intent, amounting to around $200,000/month, in a kind of RaaS (robotics-as-a-service) model.
Beyond flipping burgers, Tolson says construction workers — including a roofer — have expressed interest in the platform, along with Bobacino, an automated boba tea bar. Yet another firm has expressed interest in the technology to help paint Christmas ornaments.
The company says it’s developed both hardware and software components in tandem to lower the barrier of entry for non-robotics, creating a no-code solution in the process. Users show the robot how to perform a task by walking them through the steps, be it making a hamburger or affixing shingles to a roof.
“I think that to build a great product that really focuses on solving the real customer need and requirements, you can’t just be a software company or a hardware company,” says Tolson. “You have to do both.”

Germany has called for European Union states to work with countries that can develop new gas fields, prompting concern from campaigners over the climate change commitments of Europe's biggest economy as it scrambles to replace Russian gas. EU leaders are meeting on Thursday to debate new measures to tame high energy prices and plug the gap caused by plummeting deliveries of Russian gas – a response that Brussels has said should speed up, rather than slow, Europe's shift to green energy. In a draft document seen by Reuters, Germany said EU countries should agree at the summit to "work together with countries that have the capacity to develop new gas fields, as part of the Paris Climate Agreement commitments".
Since President Vladimir Putin shifted tactics last week to mount air strikes on infrastructure targets across Ukraine, Moscow has ramped up its use of two main weapons: long-range cruise missiles and so-called "suicide drones". Both are types of aircraft that fly to a target and explode when they get there, but they pose different threats. Russia may have used munitions worth hundreds of millions of dollars in a single day on Oct. 10 when Putin signalled his new tactic with the biggest air strikes since the start of the war, firing more than 80 cruise missiles at targets across Ukraine.
