+ - Microsoft Launches Robotics Developer Kit

Submitted by JPriest
JPriest (547211) writes "Microsoft on Wednesday launched 'Microsoft Robotics Studio SDK'. The software allows you to build your robot and test it in a virtual environment with physics that let it interact with other objects. The idea is that the platform will allow for greater code re-use and sharing. There is a video segment about the SDK here showing the virtual environment near the end. If you don't have the domain filtered yet, you can always find the project home page at http://microsoft.com/robotics/"
