Silas Adekunle - The world's first gaming robots developer

Silas Adekunle is a Nigerian inventor technology entrepreneur known for creating the world's first intelligent gaming robot.

Silas Adekunle was born in Nigeria and moved to England when he was 11 years old. As a kid, he obsessed with technology, playing with Lego robot kits and watching YouTube videos to get ideas for simple robots he could build himself at home.

At 27, Adekunle is the CEO and founder of a robotics company that he says has raised $10 million in funding. He also built what he calls the world’s first gaming robot, which impressed Apple executives enough that, in 2017, the tech giant signed an exclusive distribution deal with Adekunle’s UK-based company, Reach Robotics. Apple now sells the robots at $250 a pop.

He earned a first-class degree in Robotics from the University of the West of England.

He is the co-founder of Reach Robotics, an augmented reality gaming company that creates robots for gaming and STEM education. Adekunle has partnered with Apple, signing an exclusive distribution deal to sell his product in both the United States and Britain. Reach Robotics shut down on Sept. 2, 2019.

In November 2018, he was named to the Financial Times list of the 'Top 100 minority ethnic leaders in technology'.
