This company was founded at the end of World War 2 in an attempt to undo the reputation that perpetrated by Nazi Scientist. Six German nationals came together to advance science and lure back German scientists who fled the country during the Nazi regime. In the late 1940s the group began advancing the work of Alan Turing and created the first electronic stored-program digital computer. The company continued to make advancements in computer technology for all of the 20th century.
Headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany and with manufacturing plants across the globe by the late 20th century. Sechs Kamfs plant in the United States was in Chattanooga, Tennessee which manufactured 85% of all products sold in the North Americas.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s Sechs Kamfs was one of the leading manufacturers of processors found in most cellular phones and home computers. The company focus was on the manufacturing of high end parts for larger manufacturers of high tech equipment, but that all changed in 2020 when Sechs Kamfs released the SK-1 the first home robotic servant.
Resembling a five legged spider the SK-1 was German engineering with function over form. The robot was capable of performing almost all household chores. The high price tag and unfriendly appearance resulted in slow sales to start. But hotels and businesses began to replace their human staff with the SK-1 as the need for human contact with the robots was minimal.
Later models would learn from the failings of the previous and eventually the release of the SK-12 models in 2024 had a human-like appearance. Though the SK-12s did possess a synthetic silicone flesh the skin tones had a range of metallic tones. Sechs Kamfs never felt that an exact replica of a human would sell as well.
The SK-12 was the best selling robots for home use. Its numbers even rivaled that of Chelm Systems’ C-10. Pre-End War numbers suggest that their was about one in every 12 homes in the United States and Europe.
