Make everywhere within your walking distance





We believe that walking should be an efficient alternative to owning a car, biking, or taking public transport, everywhere for everyone.

Our Solution

Nimbus Robotics are building robotic shoes to enable commuters walking faster without extra efforts. By strapping our bionic shoes over your everyday shoes, you can make walking a mile take half of the time.

  • Zero-learning curve

User controls the speed of shoes by their own gaits as our onboard AI detects user's current gait in real-time. The user experience is similar to walking on the moving walkway - the shoes adapt to your walking speed thereby making them a natural extension of your legs.

  • Light-weight

Each shoe weighs as much as a hiking boot.

  • Portability

Unlike bikes which can be dangerous and are theft prone, our shoes are safe enough to be used on sidewalks and small enough to be carried in your backpack.
