By Ted Hall [Reporting from ShopBot], ShopBot Tools, January 15th, 2007

Over the holiday break, I happened to read a Scientific American [Jan., 2007, 58-65] article by Bill Gates in which he describes his views on emerging trends in consumer robotics. In the article, Gates makes the point that the field of consumer robotics is coming of age—particularly in having created around-the-house-helpers like Roomba—and that …
