Linux Electrons says that VIA Technologies is demoing PC-Bots this week in Las Vegas. Via Technologies is a maker of Mini-ITX motherboards and has taken initiative in working with the robotics community to power the Robotics Revolution. Mini-ITX boards allow robots to utilize the powerful of x86 platform but still allow for efficient power and small size. These tiny PC boards are compatible with Linux or the Windows platforms and are great for robotics. The powerful PC-Bots that were showcased were the 912 Robot by White Box and the IO from RoboDynamics. They even had a robot petting zoo for the kiddies. If your robot is not PC based, perhaps now would be a great time to upgrade and make your bot be a PC-bot too?
