Reach Robotics CEO, Silas Adekunle is a 26 year old who has featured on Forbes 30 Under 30 List for European Technology and currently enjoys an exclusive distribution deal with Apple that has put his product, a robot known as mekamon in Apple stores across the US and UK.

Impressed by the quality of his robots and their ability to show emotion with subtly-calibrated movements, Apple priced his four-legged “battle-bots” at $300 and has put them in nearly all of its stores in the United States and Britain. Early customers skew towards male techies but a growing number of parents are buying the robots for their children to get them interested in STEM, Adekunle says.
