Hoaloha_Tandy_Trower… Tandy Trower, the founder of Microsoft’s Robotics Studio software and initiative, and now founder and CEO of Seattle-based Hoaloha Robotics, wrote about his progress to date. His blog post is an important evaluation of the complexities of the process but is also illuminating of what we need and he proposes for the future regarding personal care robotics.
… He identifies many companies working on similar robots but concluded that Hoaloha should go it alone. Further, he concluded that there is value in managing both the hardware and software design to facilitate the best design and user experience.
… His story is worth reading. Click to read.
