33rd Square | Heartland Robotics Will Release Their First Product In 2013

33rd Square | Heartland Robotics Will Release Their First Product In 2013 | Robotics Frontiers | Scoop.it

Rodney Brooks, the founder of Heartland has apparently told people that the company is working on the robotics industry's version of the iPhone — an affordable-enough device (their target price is about $5000) that will be intuitive to use, and that will spawn a community of app developers who write software for it. It'll be designed to perform a variety of packaging or light manufacturing tasks, sources have told me.
