Willow Garage PR2 Robot Can be Purchased Now for $400K

I like the idea of having my own robot as much as the next geek, but I draw the line at spending more than a nice home would cost. If you have been following the sweet PR2 robot from Willow Garage, you know the bot has only been offered to universities so far.

The PR2 is now available for purchase by anyone that has an extra $400,000 lying around to spend. That much loot gets you a big robot that can do stuff. It includes two arms with grippers, an omnidirectional mobile base, and a full sensor suite.

The sensors include a 5MP camera, a couple LIDAR sensors, and a lot more. The brains of the bot are a pair of onboard Xeon services with 8-cores each, 24GB of RAM each, and 2TB of storage apiece. The bot also comes with all the WiFi and networking stuff needed to control the robot.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
