Robot Revolutionaries!

I'm sitting right now with MIT Media Lab alumnus roboticist Cory Kidd at the MIT Muddy Charles Pub. Cory's visiting from Hong Kong where he and partner Erica have founded Intuitive Automata to commercialize Cory's weight loss coachbot, Autom. His work was also just mentioned in a US News & World Report in an article entitled The Robot Revolution May Finally Be Here. The article showcases a couple MIT spinoff companies, iRobot and Myomo. Very cool!
