Thomas Burick on the Future of PC Bots

Posted 10 Jan 2004 at 03:16 UTC by steve Share This has posted a recent interview with Thomas Burick of White Box Robotics. According to the interview, it turns out Thomas got his start with the venerable Heathkit Hero robots. The interview provides some background on Burick as well as details on White Box Robotics' 912 series of PC based robots. If you haven't seen the 912 robots yet, take a look - they're some of the nicest looking robots currently available. They're based on the VIA Mini-ITX motherboard. The consumer version of the robots will ship with Windows and proprietary control software from Evolution robotics but the article suggests that a lower-cost "bare-bones" version might be available without the expensive software licenses for robot experimenters and researchers who want to run Linux and one of the more developer-friendly Open Source control systems.
