Our team is thrilled to announce that Kuri has been named a finalist in the product category for Fast Company’s 2017 Innovation by Design Awards! With more than 2,500 entries, we’re proud that our adorable home robot stood out from the pack to have received this distinguished honor.

Fast Company‘s Innovation by Design Awards program (now in its sixth year) honors the most innovative and disruptive design solutions created to resolve today’s most challenging business issues. This year’s judging panel, comprised of the world’s best design minds, included actor and furniture designer Terry Crews, Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler, and Roman Mars, Founder of 99% Invisible.

As a finalist, Kuri is in good company. Featured alongside Coding Awbie, Daydream View, Jamboard, and more — Kuri joins the ranks of Fast Company’s trailblazing products of 2017.

We’re thrilled that Kuri received a special acknowledgment from an innovative group such as this, and we can’t wait to see how Kuri continues to be received by the world when he starts shipping this December!
