"It's absolutely 100% weird to turn into a robot."
Chris Gorman, Head of Office Experience, Square

"I feel like we're on the cusp of a revolution. Fifty years from now, when someone is writing a book on the history of robotics, I think Willow Garage and ROS will have played a big role in getting robots into our homes."
– Andrew Ng, Associate Professor of Computer Science, Stanford University

"Instead of creating products that are incrementally superior, Willow Garage is developing the underlying technologies that a robotics industry will require. If Willow Garage succeeds, it will exponentially increase the pace of robotics development."
Stefan Schaal, Professor of Computer Science, Neuroscience, and Biomedical Engineering, USC

"At the center of the open source ideal is the concept that we can get more done if we work together than if we work separately. You can go to the Moon on that attitude."
– ZDNet, "Willow Garage shows how open source is supposed to work"
