Haddington Dynamics Founding Team Includes Prominent Scientific, Tech
and Business Leaders
LAS VEGAS & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Haddington Dynamics (HD) today announced that the company will
officially launch September 24 at the 2015 MakerCon event in New York
City. The company will unveil “Dexter,” HD’s open-source haptic robot,
at both MakerCon and Maker Faire, September 26-27.
Dexter, powered by advanced supercomputing technology, was created by
Haddington Dynamics co-founder Kent Gilson, prolific inventor, serial
entrepreneur and global pioneer in FPGA-based reconfigurable computing.
A winner of multiple high-profile technology innovation awards, Gilson
launched seven entrepreneurial ventures before joining Haddington
“Kent was the number one expert in reconfigurable computing that I’ve
known,” said Lloyd Reshard, CEO of Cognitive Big Data Systems and former
Branch Chief at the Air Force Research Laboratory. “We are excited to
partner with Haddington Dynamics to provide an intelligent vision
system, enabling Dexter to easily recognize objects for pick-and-place
tasks and to identify defects through quality inspections.”
Gilson is joined on the Haddington Dynamics leadership team by two
highly-respected, seasoned professionals. President and CEO Richard Fu
is a prominent leader in global investment banking and financial
services throughout North America and the Asia Pacific Rim. COO Todd
Enerson is a multifaceted leader with a strong scientific background,
and exceptional success in high-level professional recruitment, sales,
marketing and strategic partnerships.
“I could not be happier for the opportunity to work with Richard and
Todd to bring truly transformational technology to market,” said Gilson.
“ We are building this company to have real and enduring impact through
the creation of robots that enable people to expand their capacity to
develop whatever they want to bring into being.”
Haddington Dynamics leadership envisions that Dexter will develop into
an open-source, collaborative global resource that radically bends cost
curves for high-performance robotics.
“We can foresee a time when robots will be as much a part of the
societal landscape as tablets and smartphones are now,” said Fu. “We are
excited for the opportunity for Haddington Dynamics and Dexter to be
part of this extraordinary time of growth for robotics.”
“The maturation of Dexter is extremely promising and encouraging,” said
Enerson. “As the platform progresses, we look forward to establishing
productive strategic development partnerships worldwide.“
Makers and other interested individuals are invited to visit the
Haddington Dynamics booth at MakerCon and Maker Faire.
