We Build Robots!

We believe that independence is obtainable for everyone. With technology, determination and some imagination, we can make affordable solutions to help those with a variety of needs. Life doesn't stop, so we believe that a change in physical ability shouldn't stop you from living it.

Our developer's value the role a personal relationship plays in building a product that fits your wants and needs. With a positive attitude and determination, our team will work with you to help you gain independence and improve quality of life.

Our motto is: If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you give a man a fishing robot, you feed him for life and free up his time.

Meet the Founders

Jack Acton


The mastermind behind the operation, Jack has always had a fascination with technology and robotics. His interest in using robotics to help people regain independence first began when his grandmother suffered from a stroke in 2009. It took away her ability to not only run her own company, but her ability to use her arms, her speech, and her legs. This inspired him to make a robotic arm, which was controlled by an electroencephalography (EEG) headset that was meant to help restore arm function for those who have lost it. Since then, he has continued creating robotics and mechanical aids to help restore independence for those who lack it.

John Acton


The mentor and the hardware expert, John well experienced hardware engineer with great attention to detail and a passion for technology. His creativity for technological designs has earned him 19 patents in various mechanical backgrounds. He introduced Jack to his love of computers at a young age and helps to mentor a FIRST robotics team sponsored by Nasa in his spare time. He first started building robotics with Jack in 2003 and they have been building ideas together ever since.

Mission Statement

Acton Robotics is a focused on offering quality robotic solutions to improve the lives of people who lack abilities to do things by themselves. We come up with solutions that economically reduce dependencies on other people and add efficiency into everyday life. Our goal is to be an affordable solution for those who wish to live independently.

Our Vision

Our vision is to make mechanical aids to assist those who are impaired in completing what seem to be simple day-to-day tasks that they would otherwise be unable to do independently.
