My name is Robert Oschler. I am an inventor and software programmer with a firm belief in the power of robots to improve our lives, especially for those with physical disabilities.  I recently completed a software package for quadriplegics that lets them pilot a robot using only eye blinks, head movement, and facial expressions.

I want to go further and create software that will allow those with even less physical movement capability to do the same.  To raise money I am selling a few domains my company bought over the years. Please look at the list and if you are interested in one of them, contact me with your offer. If you just want to contribute without buying a domain just use the Buy Now button to the left or the button below (and thank you!). You can watch some videos to see the EEG headset controlled robot in action and if you would like to read what important people have said about Robodance and myself, look at the Kudos & Quotes section below.

Mind Controlled Robot

In this video I use the Emotiv Systems 14-electrode EEG headset with built-in gyroscope to control my Rovio spy robot remotely over a Web connection.  The Web connection consists of a Skype video call and I use my mind, facial gestures, and head movements to drive my Rovio around my home.

Training Video for Emotiv EPOC version

This video shows the official training video for the version that uses the Emotiv EPOC 14-electrode headset to pilot the robot in a completely hands-free manner.  The video shows how easy it is to use the system using only head movement, eye-blinks, and your mind, making it suitable for the severely physically disabled like quadriplegics.  It also is a unique and natural way to control the robot for early adopters and those curious about the future of robotics and alternative user interfaces.

Kudos & Quotes about Robodance and my work

Quotes about me

Here are some quotes about me from some of the most talented inventors and entrepreneurs in the world:

"Robert Oschler has shown himself to be a 21st century media-robot renaissance man. Sing, program, video, and can pull it all together admirably. He's been a one-man pro-robot advocate and as such will be one of the last destroyed during the machine uprising."

--- Mark Tilden, Robotics Physicist and inventor of the best-selling Robosapien line of robots distributed by WowWee, Ltd.

"Robert is one of the few developers who really understands the future of Robotics."

--- Caleb Chung, inventor of the mega-hit Furby animatronic toy and the Pleo baby robot dinosaur.

(Regarding my Rovio spy robot demonstration with the EPOC EEG headset). 
"This is a great demonstration of the capabilities of the Emotiv EPOC. Robert has cleverly integrated several applications with the Emotiv SDK to provide a remote roving security robot under full hands-free control of the user. The application takes advantage of encrypted remote internet control and video acquisition using Skype to provide a secure and foolproof link to the robot, which could be in your apartment, inside a nuclear reactor or even on Mars (expect a bit of transmission lag for your Martian robot)."

--- Tan Le, CEO of Emotiv Systems Inc.

"Robert has a been a great supporter of WowWee's consumer robot products over the years. His program Robodance is an impressive software program that really highlights the features of our best-selling line of robot products, and also makes them easier to use. In addition, he has an unusual knack for getting the praise and attention of the top gadget blogs and web sites like Gizmodo, Engadget, SlashDot, and many others who have covered on numerous occasions his video reviews and high tech demonstrations involving our products. His best work though has been with Rovio, our WiFi enabled mobile spy cam robot, a revolutionary product for home telepresence. His recent video, where he used the Emotiv EEG headset to pilot a Rovio remotely over a Skype video call using only his thoughts and facial gestures, has become an instant favorite with us."

--- Amy Weltman, VP Marketing, WowWee USA Inc.

Industry Awards

In May of 2005 version 2 my Robodance software program won the coveted Project Of The Month award from, the largest open source repository in the world. Out of thousands and thousands of software projects, SourceForge awards just one of them the Project Of The Month award for the current month.


Quotes about Robodance

“Amazing i-SOBOT & WiiMote Mash-up (Video)”

--- Lem Fugitt, one of PC Magazine’s favorite robotics bloggers in his post about the Robodance 4 sneak peek video I released late last year.

"In my opinion this (Robodance, my software program) is the gold standard that all other PC based control programs should seek to emulate."

--- Jamie Samans popular book “The Robosapien Companion”, pp. 211

"Using Emotiv's SDK and his own Robodance software, RobotsRule resident mad scientist Robert Oschler hacked together a system that allows him to use the headset to control the robot remotely via Skype. We can't find a good reason to put this all together except one: it's totally awesome."

--- Matt Hickey, Crave blogger at C|Net and also a writer at Gizmodo.

"You've seen Rovio hackery before, but not like this. Not with MIND CONTROL and Skype both involved. In regards to my Robodance software and the Rovio spy robot."

--- Kat Hannaford staff writer at Gizmodo.
