Teleport yourself to real places around the world by beaming into robot avatars

Challau is the world’s first teleportation service – that’s right! Teleportation has long been a purely sci-fi concept where you can instantly transport yourself thousands of miles away at the click of button. We’re making this a reality. Through Challau, you can now ‘teleport’ from anywhere around the world into a real-life robot avatar which lets you see, hear, interact, and move around, in remote places in real-time. Simply ‘teleport’ into a robot using your computer or smartphone to instantly explore the world like never before.

The Challau platform is made up of a shared fleet of robots that anyone, anywhere, can discover, access and interact through. Our robots are fitted with an array of sensors, and powered by our advanced Telepresence technology with ultra-fast communication systems, making it possible to beam yourself to places around the world in an instant.

Introducing Challau

See what its like to 'teleport' through Challau

Challau lets you ‘teleport’ yourself to fascinating places and experience them as if you were physically there. You can explore through your robot avatar, giving it instruction to move around thousands of miles away in real-time.

Once you have ‘teleported’ into a robot avatar, you can see and speak to people in the places you are visiting, and people around your avatar can also see and hear you.
