Did you know?
Did you know that almost 1 in 4 Americans today are taking care of someone in a home with a disability like Alzheimers or Autism?
We at Bestie Bot do.
The co-founders of Bestie Bot, Richard and Sugey, have over 15 years experience leading an internationally recognized non-profit that works with individuals with disabilities. They personally also have a son with a form of autism that requires life-long attention and care. They have many friends facing the same challenges with either Alzheimers or autism, with many of the same questions being asked.
“What else can I do?”, “Are we making the right decisions?”, or the big one: “What happens if I die?”
This is why they started Bestie Bot.
Bestie Bot builds tools that help individuals live with dignity, whether that is by protecting their identities and data, or by building environments that fully support their daily lives.
The Bestie I (and Bestie II)
While developing the full platform, Bestie Bot decided to release the first part of the platform as a developer tool to free those that work on the cutting edge of technology to play with a truly open home data system. We take inspiration from the initials builds of the Apple I which used wood casing for housing and were made for the tech hobbyist’s at the local Homebrew Computer Club.
Bestie Bot can’t disclose much at this time about the Bestie II, however, we can say that we are building the next step in utilizing a centralized brain within the home.
