Rapyuta Robotics aims to use “cloud robotics” to transform autonomous technologies, such as sensors and robots, that were once considered too complex, too difficult, or too expensive into everyday solutions for businesses. They believe that cloud robotics not just a possibility, but a commercial reality -- even for people with minimal robotics expertise. Building on the willingness of Japanese companies to invest in game-changing technology and their desire for full-service solutions, the company launched in Tokyo as a global startup, and now has offices in Zurich and Bengaluru. They are working closely with Japanese co-development partners to make robotics technology more and more accessible.

Beverly’s famously high-pitched tone brings vocalism into a whole new level.

After rigorous training with famous Filipino composer, Vehnee Saturno, she was introduced to Japan in 2015. Now, she’s recognized not just in the Philippines, but has also been awarded several times in music festivals throughout America and Qatar.

At the A-Nation held in August, she was appointed as a starring act. She received huge applause from the audience, which is incredibly rare for newcomers. In addition, she’s also sung in 3 songs from the Disney Magical Pop Christmas Album.

Her debut album "Awesome" was released on May 31st, 2017.

After famous Japanese actor Shun Oguri attended one of Beverly's live performances, he became transfixed by her talent, and introduced her to a well-known TV drama producer. This led to the release of “I Need Your Love” and “Empty,” recorded for her album "Awesome,” as the opening theme and featured song, respectively, for Kantere Fuji TV's drama series ”CRISIS kouan-kidou-sousatai-tokusouhan.”
