Dimitris Chatzis

Student & Innovator

High school student Dimitris is one of a few people worldwide to have built a 3D printed, life-size humanoid InMoov robot. It all started when he was still in fifth grade and saw the movie “Real Steel,” which is about robots battling in the boxing ring.

After 1,400 hours of experimentation, adjustments and repairs, and with the help of a 3D printer he built himself, Troopy, a functioning open-source humanoid robot, came to life.

Dimitris was recently presented with the Young Innovators and Entrepreneurs prize, a special category of the acclaimed Kouros entrepreneurship awards.
