back in 2016, founder and engineer Camilo Parra Palacio had an idea. While working in Shanghai for a multinational toy manufacturer, he wondered upon the very first Hackerspace in China. There he started playing and experimenting with DIY robots. To his surprise, DIY robots were only accessible to professionals, and not to the general public. After coming up short with finding an easy to make robot for all ages, he realized what he needed to do. Bring to the market a robot that anyone can make. Thus, Otto was born!
