Labrador, a 2020 graduate of the HAX program, announced its 'retriever' robot would move into the home in 2023 at CES this month. Retriever is a robot meant to enable populations who struggle to maintain independence in their own home.

“There’s a significant portion of our society that’s massively underserved,” said Mike Dooley, founder and CEO of Labrador. “When pain or other health issues start interfering with your ability to move yourself or other things, even short distances can have a major impact on your independence, quality of life and overall health. The Retriever is meant to help physically bridge some of that gap and empower individuals to be more active and do more on their own.”
