Meet the founders of Robohood
In 2001, Robohood Founder Vladimir Tsimberg, a Physician, Entrepreneur, and an amateur artist, became the President/Owner of BioVitrum, a manufacturer and supplier of medical and laboratory diagnostic equipment that help doctors detect and diagnose various health conditions faster with greater accuracy. With BioVitrum located less than 20 minutes away from Russia’s iconic State Hermitage Museum, the second largest art museum in the world after the Louvre, Vladimir enjoys easy access to a massive art collection, from prehistoric art, to Egyptian and classic antiquities, to neoclassical, impressionist, and 19-20th century art.
Working alongside representatives of the world’s leading companies devoted to saving lives by advancing the medical diagnostic process while being located so close to the Hermitage Museum, it is no surprise that Vladimir Tsimberg is passionate about both art and science. BioVitrum’s team means a great deal to Vladimir; exercising creativity has become a traditional team-building exercise at BioVitrum. The whole team gathers to paint, thus unwinding while realizing their creative potential.
It is during these artistic team-building exercises that Vladimir first realized that an artist’s ability to put their ideas onto canvas can be inhibited by physical limitations, such as limited visual-spatial perception, a disability, or simply a lack of artistic experience and skills. Vladimir became convinced that an artist’s physical limitations should not limit their ability to imagine and create. What if everyone can paint, Vladimir said to himself, and set about testing his big idea.
In May 2021, Vladimir Tsimberg teamed up with engineers, programmers, and technology experts to establish Robohood LLC., a start-up that revolutionized the arts by introducing robotic painting technology worldwide. As their first foray into robotic art, Robohood created the Van Der Bot art collection using a UFACTORY xArm 5 Lite Robotic Arm. Robohood also painted with the well-known industrial robot, KUKA R900 x1, which produced the first large-scale robotic paintings.
Robohood settled on UFACTORY robotic arms, and in December of 2021, Robohood LLC. was established as a corporation now known as Robohood Inc. Robohood Inc headquarters is located in the United States, in the tropical, sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Robohood Mobile Robotic Art Studio is designed to give a helping hand in the traditional art making process to creators of any skill level. With Robohood’s Mobile Robotic Art Studio, any artist can watch their ideas manifest right before their eyes with little to no experience. Artists can also embark on a new journey by collaborating with a robot, as a collaborating professional artist; hence, adding new depth to the creative process.
