Red Robot Photo Booths
The Birth of Red Robot
The humble Photo Booth, reinvented for the digital age is where it all started for Red Robot. It started in a garage in 2008 with a simple idea to create an easy to operate Photo Booth that was portable and used new digital camera and fast printing technologies. The aim was to bring the fun concept of a classic Photo Booth to parties and events, where the traditional chemical tank-type ones just couldn’t go.
Co-founders Duncan Amos and Phil Preston cobbled together a prototype to test the business model, were then blown away by the success and popularity which then flowed on to bigger and greater things. This was the birth of their first company Picme Photobooths.
They re-invented and redesigned over and over, pushing for new efficiencies and better quality. The product they made became so popular that other’s wanted in. And so this paved the way for Red Robot – a Photo Booth manufacturer that could help others achieve what Picme Photobooths had done.
Fast forward to 2018 and Red Robot became the largest and most successful Photo Booth manufacturer in the Southern Hemisphere and has helped thousands of people start businesses that have generated millions in revenue.
Red Robot was acquired in 2019 by the global entertainment technology powerhouse; Foto Master.
Looking back – it wasn’t so much the Photo Booth that captivated their hearts and fueled their passion – it was the making of the product and the business that surrounded it – the legacy.
Today Red Robot operates as the Australian arm of Foto Master while focussing on road case design, industrial design and fabrication.
