After showing it off to the world in a series of tantalizing videos, Willow Garage has finally announced that they will be making their PR2 robot available for sale next month.
This is the humanoid robot that we’ve seen shooting pool, folding laundry, fetching beer from the fridge, and even finding an outlet and plugging itself in for a well-deserved recharge. We’ve compiled a gallery of our favorite PR2 moments.
Disclaimer: Willow Garage has not sent or offered PopSci any cool gifts, such as an awesome free robot, in exchange for our continued objective coverage of their creations. We would like one with the beer software preloaded, please.
