We cooperated with Computer Aided Design Innovation & Engineering Lab at Stony Brook University to build the ArduinoBlue app as a free app. This application is provided at no cost and is intended to use as is.

The app does not collect any information from users.

We created MicroBlue to make it easy for everyone to connect to their smartphones via bluetooth to their robots. It is available as a free app on the App Store and Google Play Store. This application is provided at no cost and is intended to use as is.

The app does not collect any information from users.


MotionGen is a web-based software, which requires a registration on our website before it can be used. Most users with access to email are required to provide their name, email, role (student, teacher, or personal), and affiliation. Users can edit any of their personal information anytime. They can also request deletion of their account by sending an email at

Since MotionGen is often used in educational settings where younger students may not have access to email for confirming their accounts, a teacher can securely create classes and user accounts for their students. Teachers can also edit or delete classes or student accounts as per their requirements. We do not share any personally identifiable information of any user with anyone outside our organization. Neither do we sell or advertise any of this information. We also do not advertise on our MotionGen platform. We care about our users privacy and remain transparent about our privacy practices.

MotionGen uses Google cloud services and storage for managing users’ personal information and also for storing their personal projects that they create using MotionGen. Students’ projects are private by default. Teachers using MotionGen Classrooms control what is shared and with whom. Unless teachers choose to share, no student work is visible outside of the MotionGen Class, or to other students within the Class. The only third party service that we use for MotionGen is Google cloud hosting and storage  services, which provides state-of-the-art security and compliance in data storage. They undergo independent verification of their security, privacy, and compliance controls to help meet regulatory and policy objectives. See their data security page at for more details.
