World Highest Paid Robotic Engineer Silas Adekunle Shuts Down His Business

Image may contain: 4 peopleEngineer Silas Adekunle, who is the highest paid Robotic Engineer in the world and also the founder of AR Robots Makers, has decided to shutdown his business operations in UK.
The Nigerian born Robotic Engineer shut down Reach Robotics, in Bristol, United Kingdom and this shocked his UK based robotics consumers. He said he’s going to focus on new things.
Silas Adekunle is a Nigerian inventor technology entrepreneur known for creating the world's first intelligent gaming robot.He earned a first class degree in Robotics from the University of the West of England. He is the co-founder of Reach Robotics, an augmented reality gaming company that creates robots for gaming and for STEM education. Adekunle
has partnered with Apple, signing an exclusive distribution deal to sell his product in both the United States and Britain.[5] Reach Robotics shut down on Sept. 2, 2019. In November 2018, he was named to the Financial Times' list of the 'Top 100 minority ethnic leaders in technology.
Adekunle made the announcement on LinkedIn. One of the Co-founders John Rees confirmed that “the decision has been made to close the business and appoint administrators, effective as of 02/09/2019,” according to a report by therobotreport.com.
Below is Adekunle’s LinkedIn post:
“Unfortunately, for Reach Robotics, in its current form at least, today marks the end of that journey.
“I am immensely proud of what we have achieved. Since founding Reach Robotics at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, we made huge strides in our technology both in terms of our hardware and app development. We took MekaMon from prototype to market, introduce the world to the first gaming robot with seamless AR integration, launched in dozens of territories and developed a unique education offering that will live on through many initiatives.
“This simply could not have happened without the highly skilled and creative people that have been part of the Reach Robotics journey. I speak for myself and my fellow co-founders Chris Beck and John Rees when I say it has been a privilege and we have no doubt that they will continue to innovate and enrich the sector. Personally, I am grateful for the experience, lessons learnt, the connections and the opportunity to inspire young people from under-represented backgrounds in STEM and entrepreneurship.
“I am thankful to everyone who has been a part of this journey, from my co-founders Chris and John, who have been there through thick and thin, to members of the management team who were supportive in the most difficult of times, Jonathan Quinn, Kathryn Green, Philip Green just to name a few.
“Thank you to all of our investors, advisers, mentors, family and friends over the years. Special thanks to UWE, Bristol Robotics Laboratory, Pervasive Media Studio, SetSquared and so many others who have supported our growth. Reach Robotics began with the vision of creating advanced and accessible robotics to entertain, inspire and educate. I hope to carry that vision forward into the future.
“Following some travel and much needed rest, the journey will continue in the Non consumer Robotics sector and the STEAM Education sector.”

I know this guy when he was young, we used to play together then, he would use chew gums to make robots and it was fun. His mum traveled to Canada via nursing profession and later came for the rest of the family and I later heard he is in the UK. A lot of you don't know that he has sold the robotic stuff to Apple, village people nor dey involved here.

Another theory is that this guy has discovered some secret of the defence apps and some web secret of the western world that's why they shot him down, that guy has broken the jinx of western technology,
