Project Rosie is an Augmented Reality startup project from ETH Zurich, currently incubated as an Associate Project at Wyss Zurich. We developed Rosie, an AR robot for iPhones. Kids of ages 8 and up teach Rosie programming and science. They teach by doing real-life science experiments, talking to her and physically moving through space. We offer immediately or by arrangement a position as a
