PR2s Headed to Korea, France, Seattle and Washington, DC.
When we first made the PR2 commercially available in September we knew that the day would come when we would be able to proudly announce our first sale. What we didn't realize was that our first announcement would involve multiple customers – four of them, in fact.
CNRS Laboratory of Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS-CNRS) in Toulouse, France; George Washington University in Washington, DC; Samsung Electronics in Suwon, Korea; and University of Washington in Seattle, WA are now the owners of their very own PR2 robots. At 5 ft and 450 pounds, more or less, PR2 isn't something that fits well under a Christmas tree. Nevertheless, there are four research institutions that are eagerly opening up their newest present.
The official press release is here, but we just couldn't wait to share it with the PR2 community.
