My name is George Fomichev. I am a founder of a startup. We create technologies, which, I am sure, will become in high demand in the future.

Our first task is to empower the younger generation, students and enthusiasts, with all the necessary stuff to study practical robotics.

That’s why we have developed a DIY SelfieBot and opened a free access to our technologies to create an open-source community.

We see robotics as a future popular trend, that’s why we want to involve in robotics as many students and enthusiasts as possible. We believe that by 2020 the robotics and loT market will become one of the most dynamic.

It’s very important to involve younger generation in practical robotics learning and help them acquire knowledge and experience in this field. Unlike Lego products and other robot-toy kits, our platforms allow a wider look at various problems and solving tasks not only in the field of micro controllers programming but also in the field of design (device’s exterior), applications programming for control as well as other.

Feedback from of our platforms users and their involvement in the process of our solutions improvement is very important for us. A DIY SelfieBot kit will allow acquiring skills and experience in 3D modeling and 3D printing, getting experience in making circuit boards, will allow mastering basics of creating control boards and getting practical application programming skills for iOS / Android.

All this is very valuable, and we hope that you will fully experience all the benefits of joining our community.

Kind regards,

George Fomitchev, Endurance founder.

Our products

Welcome to the world of robots and lasers!
Welcome to the world of Endurance!

Endurance is a growth-oriented Russian-American technological start-up, specializing in development and bringing on the market of technological products, mainly, lasers, engraving machines, robots and DIY kits.

Endurance presents:

L-Cheapo diode lasers 2.1 W, 3.5 W for 3D printers and CNC mills, which turn any 3D printer or CNS mill/router into a laser cutter/engraver. A perfect solution for enthusiastic people, do-it-yourselfers and for companies dealing with 3D printing or producing promotional items and souvenirs. The lasers are easy in use and service. Unlike Chinese analogues, they are powerful, fail-safe, and cheap.

Diode laser engravers (2.1 W and 3.5 W). An ideal solution for home and small offices to easily make beautiful engravings for your people and colleagues. This is a unique solution in the market for do-it-yourself cutting and engraving. “3 in 1”: 3D printer, laser cutter, and a laser engraver. Our product enables not just to easily and quickly create small plastic models but also to engrave, make personal inscriptions, do markings. The Endurance engraver will turn the user’s working place into a mini engraving workshop.

An Endurance DIY desktop laser cutter/engraver (2.1 W and 3.5 W). This Endurance engraving kit (“do it yourself”) is meant for those who need now and then to engrave this or that at work without leaving the office. Our cutter/engraver is easy to use and control. Just connect the device to your PC and cut/engrave whatever you like. The Endurance DIY desktop laser cutter/engraver cuts and engraves various materials: wood, plywood, cardboard, non-transparent acrylic, plastics. The Endurance DIY desktop laser cutter/engraver will be useful for home and office.

A telepresence system (telepresence robot) is a new way of communication, opening one more dimension of communication. A new dimension of reality during video calls. The telepresence system is an Android tablet on wheels, which you can take along and communicate on a new level. Telepresence is not just a way to see and hear your interlocutor but also to move and walk while talking, and the robot will follow you. The product is indispensable for small and medium businesses and for those who spend much time at conferences, meetings, negotiations. This product will save your time! A useful solution for business, which makes it possible to follow the interlocutor if he/she moves around.

A controlled “smart” holder for your telephone/tablet – SelfieBot. For home and office. A new degree of freedom of communication during a video call made from your mobile device.

A robot-waiter. Future of the restaurant and hotel business. Substitution of waiters in food service and lodging industry.

Endurance also works at:

  • Diode lasers (5W, 7W, 10 W) for 3D printers and CNC devices. With more powerful lasers we hope to successfully engrave metal and ceramics.
  • Desktop engravers of more than 0.5 m2 in size with additional cameras for a more accurate system of positioning.
  • «Smart» functions for the telepresence system: autonomous motion, «Follow me», automatic return to the charging doc station.
  • Autopilot for a robot-waiter to ensure its moving around a place bypassing obstacles (objects and people).
  • «Intellectual” systems of speech recognition in the narrow channel, object search and tracking at a low light level.

Product Advantages
Endurance L-Cheapo Lasers and engraving / cutting  machines are powerful, high performance, portable tools for cutting and engraving non-metal and nontransparent materials. They cut and engrave plywood, wood, acrylic, plastic, MDF, cardboard up to 10 mm thick. An accessory for a 3D printer or a CNC device. Cheaper than most of its analogues on the market (CO2 lasers incl.)
SelfieBot is a user-friendly holder for a mobile device (telephone/tablet). It helps make video calls hands free. This is not just a holder but an automatic and remote controlled holder with the function to distantly change the view angle of the camera. A “smart” video surveillance, keeping the speaker in the picture, responding to events (sound, image, movement) and recording. A great addition for easy video calls and a fine substitution of a WiFi camera.
A telepresence system (telepresence robot) is a robotized wheeled platform with the function of telepresence and “intellectual” control of the system by a distant operator. The robot is equipped with the following functions:  “follow me”, image (face) and speech recognition, 360 video recording and broadcasting, demonstration/advertising, autonomous consulting, interviewing, information collection, polling, etc. The “smart” functions allow the system to act as a consultant, salesperson, and waiter of a new generation able to work 7/24 without days off and salary! It will help save on low skilled staff. “Smart” terminals with the voice menu will improve business- customers interaction and increase sales.
Join our DIY Selfiebot educational pilot.
Endurance is excited to present a brand new, international initiative for schools and Universities to help educate their students in the field of robotics. Endurance provides teachers and students with the tools and resources to learn about robots and their applications in “hands on” environments, and offers a framework for students.READ MORE...
