AND there are lots of exciting things that we will be announcing throughout the year on all things robot and robot hire. So keep your eyes peeled.

If you are new to Robots Direct, you might be wondering who we are and what we do, so here is a bit of background:

Where did it all begin?
Our founder and managing director Iain Londesborough – About Us  has proudly been involved in the field of robots and robotics since 1997. He set up Robots Direct in 2005 while completing his Open University Degree. His dissertation was about personal robotics, specifically; The Robomow.

Robot hire
I get why I might want to buy a robot, but why would I want to hire one?
Some of our robots are very impressive, which means they are also very expensive! It’s much cheaper to hire a robot to impress people at your next; party, conference, launch event or festival. A robot would definitely make your company stand out and help with promoting your product or brand, you will certainly leave a lasting impression.

Famous robots
“The word ‘robot’ was first used to denote a fictional humanoid in a 1920 play R.U.R. by the Czech writer, Karel Čapek but it was Karel’s brother Josef Čapek who was the word’s true inventor” (Wikipedia).
Fast forward to modern times and robots of amazing variety appear all over the media. Some of the most famous include R2-D2 and C-3PO of Star Wars fame, The Terminator and Daleks in Dr Who.
