ISHN Magazine published two recent articles. The first provides an overview of Squishy Robotics and its technologies, and in the second, editor Dave Johnson describes how our robots "come to the rescue" in First responders get life-saving sensor readings, video surveillance. ISHN Magazine is published for safety and health professionals in high-hazard industrial and construction workplaces.
CEO Alice Agogino was interviewed for Episode 54 of the Smart Firefighting Podcast. Listen to the podcast and read the article about how Squishy Robotics is providing groundbreaking innovations to reduce risks and save lives during emergencies and disasters.
This magazine article, THE SQUISHY ROBOTS THAT COULD SAVE THE WORLD, explains how work for NASA led CEO Alice Agogino to the realization that everything that made our robots perfect for space exploration—their autonomous sensing power, remote control capabilities, and unprecedented impact durability—made our robots perfect for Earth-based disaster responders.
ZDNet's reporter Greg Nichols explains how robots can go where people can't during emergencies. Listen to an intrview with Nichols and read his article to learn more about how our robots can be rapidly deployed to disaster sites and quickly transmit videos and data to first responders.
CBRNe World magazine serves the information needs of professionals around the world charged with planning for or responding to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or explosives (CBRNe) threat or incident. The magazine's article, Dropping robots from the skies, explains how Squishy Robotics sensor robots enable first responders and the public to make crucial decisions about and respond to CBRNE threats faster.
Squishy Robotics demonstrated our robots at the TechCrunch Robotics+AI session that was held at UC Berkeley in late April. CEO Alice Agogino led the demo through backdrop videos of field testing and airdrops, supplemented with stage demos by the Squishy Robotics team.

Squishy Robotics participated in Operation Convergence Response 2018, demonstrating our life-saving innovations. In addition to participation in the Solutions Showcase, Squishy Robotics was featured at the Earthquake Scenario. Visual and chemical data gathered and transmitted from Squishy Robots enables disaster response teams to make better decisions, save lives, reduce costs and risks, and increase the effectiveness of the response, all while increasing safety of team members.
Alice M. Agogino, Co-Founder and CEO of Squishy Robotics and Professor of Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley, was honored with the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Established in 1995, the award honors is the highest US award for teachers and mentors.
Berkeley, CA, Squishy Robotics, Inc. at SkyDeck, June 2018 – has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $225,000 to conduct research and development (R&D) work on Shape-Shifting Robots for Disaster Rescue, Monitoring and Education.
