Buy a Robot and Save AmericaThe company has high robotics and patriotic ambitions with their "touchable" robots that "will reinvigorate industry and inject new life into the economy. Making businesses more competitive. Keeping jobs from moving overseas. Demonstrating the power of American ingenuity."
There is still secrecy about the new industrial robot technology. At RIA Homepage it is reported that they develop a light-weight robot with a torso, one or two arms with grippers, camera as head, and on a rolling base. This robot with a price point at $ 5000 will make U.S. manufacturing more productive and efficient.
Secret Robotleaks?Well, it isn´t hard to find out that this robot concept was born at MIT CSAIL Robotics Center, where Brooks has worked in many years with smart guys like Aaron Edsinger and Eduardo Torres-Jara devoping robots like upper-torso humanoid robot DOMO and Obrero humanoid robot especialized in sensitive manipulation. Edsinger co-founded robotics startups HeeHeeHee Labs and Meka Robotics. Meka is developing lightweight compliant robot arms, hands, grippers, humanoid heads and torsos, mobile robotic platform capable of omnidirectional motion.
