Willow Garage Turtlebot

Willow Garage has launched a programmmable robot called TurtleBot. The bot was made by combining iRobot's programmable robot, iRobot Create, with an Xbox 360 Kinect, an Asus 1215N laptop, battery pack and a gyro. Willow Garage says its bot can explore your house on its own, build 3D pictures, bring you food, take panoramas, and more. The bot was created with an open-source SDK so programmers can develop their own applications. TurtleBots will begin shipping this summer for $1199.99. Take a look:
