WELCOME TO YOUR FUTURE OUTDOORS

"Our products are the vehicle to creating a connected IoT ecosystem outdoors, powered by renewable energy, robotics and technology."
Founder & CEO
There is a problem with today's Internet of Things - it needs a hub outdoors. While companies flood people's homes with one "smart device" after another (some really useful, others not so much), we saw there was no viable robotic AI solution that enhances the way people interact with outdoor environments.
And so, after nearly a decade R&D, exploration and patents, SUNFLOWER was born: packing state of the art technology into an everyday object and introducing consumers to robotics in a practical, beautiful and easily usable way.
SUNFLOWER is the first outdoor, central hub for the smart home ecosystem that communicates, entertains, protects and provides ideal shade, all in an object already used by consumers.
We first debuted SUNFLOWER at CES 2017 as a concept and recently launched the product at CES 2018. With press coverage from over 250 global outlets, including CNN, BBC, Reuters, Bloomberg, Yahoo and many more, the worldwide buzz has been overwhelming.
SUNFLOWER is our first product to go to market, but is only the first of many product patents already filed that ShadeCraft will bring to market soon. We are at the beginning of an era where stoic objects will be replaced by smart autonomous robots. ShadeCraft is at the forefront, merging high-level industrial design and mechatronics.
ShadeCraft is a different kind of startup. Our team is hyper-productive - full of inventors, engineers, makers, humanists, artists, writers, and tinkerers - we are an elite team that conquers challenges and meets our deadlines.
Our Founder and CEO, Armen Gharabegian, is a seasoned CEO with two decades of experience in production, industrial design, and product development. Armen is an accomplished inventor, entrepreneur, and industrial designer and is also an author and a speaker on intelligence design, biomimicry, and robotics.
Here at ShadeCraft, we challenge ourselves everyday to Step Outside our preconceptions and push the boundaries of invention, production, and human experiences. We are here to lead a revolution in how you interact with the outdoors.
