Robotics Startup Company

Sensori Robotics

I founded Sensori Robotics with my brother David Melbourne to fulfill my career long ambition to work on robotics. David and I grew up in the UK making things like metal detectors and hardware based video games for fun and because buying was not an option. Our combined technology experience and spirit of innovation made Sensori Robotics inevitable. 

The Sensori Robotics lawn mowing solution is a small, electric, location-aware robot that operates on cloud-based software. The Sensori robot mows more like a human instead of in random patterns, via patent-pending, artificial intelligence-based location methodologies that can “mow any lawn anywhere,” including under trees and near buildings. Sensori Robotics makes robots easy to use for landscapers. Simply drop off a Sensori Robot Mower on a customer's site and press play on the mobile app. Come back when the app tells you to and redeploy the robot to the next customer. 

David built the initial prototype electronics and hardware needed and I designed and managed the development of the patent pending robot control system. 


Moral Code

Over the years Lois and I had often discussed what kind of fictional story each of us would write but had not been told yet.  I would keep returning to the same concept and idea time and time again.  What could happen when computers are so small they are as light as dust? What would happen if the dust could form robots of varying sizes and could morph into machines suited to be able to do any job imaginable? Then imagine an AI able to control the dust which is so advanced it not only can think like a person, but also has the parental instinctive drive that humans have?  I imagined a future world where such an invention would become omni present and could protect every child on earth from trauma and serious harm.  How might that change the world? Would it change humanity itself?  



Elly is an artificial intelligent character from the book Moral Code by Lois and Ross Melbourne. Using the very latest technology available today you can now have a conversation with Elly. Just like most AIs, Elly is in perpetual training. Conversations can yield interesting results at time. If you have questions about your chat with Elly or about the book please contact Lois Melbourne at  lois at loismelbourne dot com.

EllyBot is based upon OpenAI's GPT-3, one of the largest and most advanced neural networks every created.

Product Inventions


In 1989 I started coding the very first version of OrgPublisher which could draw organizational charts automatically from the human resource or personnel data every company already has.  Now OrgPublisher and automatic org charting have become industry standards.

World's First Mobile Game using real 3D city model

Save Dallas

Before Save Dallas, the worlds seen in video games were hand crafted to resemble either a real place or a fantasy place.  Save Dallas was revolutionary because it used a real 3d model of downtown Dallas and the game ran on a mobile phone, including iPhone and Android.
