Roboticist Mark Schnittman felt disconnected with colleagues while working remotely. To keep him included, his team put a laptop on a swivel stool. Inspiration struck. In 2014, he partnered with his former iRobot colleague, Max Makeev, to found Owl Labs. After many late nights, crumpled sketches, and coffee stains, they introduced the world’s first-ever (and totally lovable) 360º camera, mic, and speaker device: the Meeting Owl.
