The future of the workforce is here today.

Beyond Imagination has developed a revolutionary AI-powered humanoid robot designed to eventually do autonomous technical tasks and integrate with LLMs such as ChatGPT and other Al high-compute infrastructure on the Cloud, Edge & more. Our product, "Beyond Manpower," offers a cost-effective solution for businesses looking to reduce labor expenses, improve productivity, and eliminate training costs. Our first application is in the healthcare field, where we are training the robot with the goal of taking on surgical tech duties.

We have received interest in advance orders and potential investments from many of the largest hospital systems and two US medical device makers.

Our long-term goal is to expand into various industries such as manufacturing, hospitality, retail, logistics, and more. The potential market for this technology is in the trillions of dollars. As Elon Musk has stated, robots like ours will be as valuable as cars. With our system, any worker can train the AI brain by using only a VR headset, without the need for gloves or other equipment. The AI brain then learns from the data gathered to perform the job.

Product Overview

  • Proprietary “AI Brain” that will learn from human pilots and evolve to full autonomy across industries
  • Piloted and trained via the company’s proprietary VR and haptic glove/sensory system
  • Highly advanced, dexterous arms, hands, and wrists
  • Fully Mobile system. All-terrain, stabilized via advanced gyroscope system that can rise up from 5’ 2” to 6’ 2” in height
  • Stereo + 360-degree vision
  • Eight issued patents, with more pending

Value Creation and Capture Business Model

Robots as a Service (RaaS): one simple monthly payment includes everything: the Beomni robot, the Cloud Platform, AI Brain and any needed maintenance

  • Each Beomni replaces at least 2.8 workers, saving up to 75% in labor costs
  • Labor costs decrease over time with economies of scale
  • Once a skill or occupation is learned, any number of AI robots can have that skill
  • New workers need no training and no signing bonus. They never quit, and all perform at peak efficiency from the start

Our First Target Market: Surgical Assist Robots

Beomni robots in the operating room are being designed with the eventual goal of providing “surgical tech” services, handing off scalpels, forceps, sponges and other tools to the surgeon in a timely, reliable and efficient manner.

We are partnered with Cobotic Surgical, Inc. (CSI), founded by surgeon Dr. Martin Roche and by Rony Abovitz, creator of Mako Robotics and Magic Leap.

CSI has already lined up four hospitals for early deployment of Beomni robots. Once Beomni establishes itself to perform duties as surgical techs and cleaning techs, CSI then intends to expand into nursing robots and laboratory techs

Return on Investment: Robots as a Service (RaaS)

One Beomni can work two full shifts, seven days a week, replacing 2.8 human workers.

Beomni cuts costs by nearly $1.5M per operating room over the projected 7-year life of the robot – $207K per year per OR per Beomni. Much of the revenue is from high-margin software and AI licenses. We plan to deploy our first units quickly into this market – two years after the close of this funding round.

Business Highlights

Founded in 2018 by Dr. Harry Kloor, Ray Kurzweil, Dean Kamen, Tony Robbins, and others, Beyond Imagination has developed one of the world’s leading general-purpose AI humanoid platform, Beomni, with the goal of reinventing the world’s workforce and creating a future where everyone can have a prosperous, healthy, productive life

The company has a group of outstanding employees and Executive Advisors that are proud to support Beomni in all aspects of its business

The company has a solid patent portfolio and numerous proprietary technologies that give it significant competitive advantages in the market

Business has been largely bootstrapped to date, raising $4.2M across two seed rounds, and $1.2M in our open Safe Note round

High RaaS Margins + Enormous Growth Potential = High ROI

"Robots as a Service" mean high-margin AI Brain/Cloud Platform license fees and Maintenance Contract fees that rise in time to over 50% of total revenues

Economies of scale will drive the percentage of these high-margin recurring revenues higher and higher.

Margin by 2028 > 41%

Margin by 2033 > 60%

We project revenue of nearly 1 billion dollars by 2027

As a manufacturer of hardware+software products, we will require enough funding to complete development of all components and then initiate deliveries to customers. We project 100 units in 2 years, 500 in Year 3 and 2,500 in Year 4, at which point we project profitability. We are seeking approximately $60M in additional funding over the next three years from accredited investors.

Forward-looking projections cannot be guaranteed. 

Limitless Markets

We are focused on surgical assist robotics; from there we can grow into numerous markets:

The restaurant workforce makes up 10% of the overall U.S. workforce. Three in 10 restaurateurs cite staffing as a challenge. Beomni can be trained fill many of these positions.

Retail and hospitality markets are hurting for employees. There are 5.5 million retail job vacancies in the US alone, an easy application after surgical assist.

With 72% of manufacturing being done by humans today, and with rising labor costs, Beomni is set to fill millions of such jobs around the world

IMPACT – Saving Lives

Beomni can take over dangerous and dirty jobs

  • These jobs are vital to the largest sectors of the economy – agriculture, construction, manufacturing, mining, logistics, etc.
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) and International Labor Organization (ILO) estimate 1.9 million lives are lost per year to occupational hazards globally.
  • Beomni will save lives by filling millions of vacant elder-care jobs.
  • Beomni can also supplement personnel, addressing the growing crisis in nursing care, where not enough nurses are available
