Shape Robotics had the vision to develop a robot system, extremely easy-to-use, even for younger school pupils. The developers Moises and David were inspired by previous projects with modular robots that could repair themselves, as well as a project they had in progress with LEGO® to develop new digital products. The project became Moises’ Ph.D. project, and as the years passed interest in using Fable grew ever greater. Therefore, at the end of 2015, David, Moises and Helene Christensen, a project manager, set up the spin-out company Shape Robotics. Their mission is to make Fable as widely available as possible, and with funding from the Technical University of Denmark and the Danish Ministry of Education, they are well on the way.
