Giving all the possibility
to stay connected with society

Concept

Our “Avatar Robot Cafe DAWN ver.β” opened in Nihonbashi, Tokyo on June 2021.
In our cafe, some of our staffs work using our avatar robots OriHime and OriHime-D from their homes and hospitals, giving an entirely new definition to remote working.
Our staffs who work using our avatar robots are all who feel hindered in social participation due to their conditions.
We aim to achieve a new form of social participation through the use of technology.
Please visit our cafe to see what the future has to offer for all of us.
Come and join us!

Introduction

Once bedridden, it is not possible to live a full life.
We are sure many people have felt this way.

Since 2012 Ory Laboratory has been working towards one goal:
the elimination of “loneliness” from the human race.

We have been working with people with disabilities, searching for ways to create a society where people can meet, work, and live like oneself even if one is bedridden or housebound.

In a time where people live longer than ever, we will all be bedridden at one point in our life. We therefore respectfully refer to our fellow individuals with disabilities as "Bedridden veterans." Despite the presence of our bedridden veterans, there is no role model for how to live life after being confined to a bed.
We believe that in searching for a life past being bound, together with our bedridden veterans, we can find this new way of life.

In 2020, the whole world came to a halt and many became confined to their homes.
The inability to go to places that we used to take for granted has caused many of us to lose our sense of community. As a result, new encounters and discoveries became scarce, and new ways of living are being sought. Casting a light on how many of our veterans have been living so far.

A year after the worldwide confinement has started, we are taking a new step forward in 2021.
Could OriHime be part of the answer to the new way of life past the pandemic?
Could people with disabilities participate in society as themselves, meet new people, and earn salaries?
Can we all, disabled and able-bodied, find new communities and participate whilst being confined to our homes?
Under the current situation, the line between "disabled" and "able-bodied" has been blurred. All of these questions have become very actual and their answers indispensable.
We are right now conducting an experiment to pave this new age, where we shape a new society together, for both those of us who can move about freely, and those who cannot. In doing so, we hope to create a shared sense of community and good memories even in difficult times like these.

Please look forward to our new adventures.
