Many robotic prototypes built, few arrive to the market

one comment

I really enjoyed  the following video from iRobot that shows their museum of all of the robotic prototypes and applications they’ve been working on over the years.

It’s amazing stuff, and very important to realize the amount of work that needs to be done to prove a concept. Even when proven, the robot may not meet some of the needs of the user, and not a best seller anyway.

Next time you buy a sophisticated toy or a small (not so intelligent) vacuum cleaner, remember all of the time, money, research and work behind it!

Thank you iRobot for showing us this treasure!
