RoboteX brings in $3.6M to build robotic avatars

RoboteX, maker of robotic platforms, has raised $3.6 million of an expected $6 million in equity, according to a filing with the SEC. The robotic platforms have the potential to be used as war robots, though the technology company claims its RoboteX Avatars can also be used for academic, personal and industrial use. Based in Palo Alto, Calif., the company last raised $2.6 million from undisclosed investors in January.
