Xitome Design, an MIT spin-off, is now offering the MDS robot Nexi for sale (see video above). The MDS-type robot, which stands for "mobile, dexterous, social", was developed by the Personal Robots Group at MIT.
The robot kind of looks pretty much the one we all saw on the movie iRobot. I guess that really will bring up the sales as well as the insurance for Xitome but then again the issue of getting past others who are in the same field ad that too in the same country is not as easy as one might expect. However, if they can promise the kind of battery health and performance that others can’t, I guess they might have a hope of coming on top!
