Startup involves a great deal of effort and teamwork. We people at TBS highly appreciate the work a startup puts in. Today the superhero badge goes to team Tark for their commendable work.
1. Tell us something about you and your startup.
Tark Systems is a tech-savvy company that deals with smart robots and watches. Under Robotics branch we made a robot that resembles and moves like a biological snake, purely by flexing its body: SURP. Surp is most useful in a situation where their unique characteristic gives them an advantage over their environment like including long and thin pipe- like structures, highly cluttered rubble or it can also act as an support system for solider and doctors. Considering this Surp is currently being developed to assist search and rescue teams. It has an implementation in animatronics, search and rescue, space technology, solider support system, medical surgery support system, pipeline leakage detection and security and surveillance.
One of the section of Tark System is in Smart watches and Bands. The watches help people track their fitness and keep them notified. We have an exclusive range of smart wears listed on the website. The wearable is Sleek, trendy and technology loaded.
The Mission statement of Tark Systems is: Use our pioneering spirit to unlock the potentials of technology so as to deliver innovative solutions to the world and improve the qualities of life. We use social media platforms to connect with customers. We also use YouTube to showcase their prototypes. It is due to cost-effective products and an effective solution when it comes to the field of Animatronics, Military, Rescue & search and Pipeline leakage detection for Robotics and Price, looks and features for Smart watch that people choose Tark Systems over others.
2. What was your motivation behind venturing into this?
The major source of inspiration was our passion toward robotics and technology and we got the push to pursue it one we felt our un-satisfaction boiling with our current jobs. And transforming our passion into a product was a greatest challenge, as the product should be made to solve a problem and make life easier for the user. We took the challenge bit more seriously and got one step ahead of it. We made a product which will not only solve a single problem but multiple problems and can provide various solutions for multiple scenarios.
