Submission + - Microsoft pushing limits for robotics?

vinitM writes: "Robotics is on a verge of another major revolution, and the only company that can push the robotics industry is Microsoft, claims Joe Pinto, robotics industry observer and angel investor who backs startup companies. Microsoft is well known for the boost it provided to the PC industry two decades ago. The firm has released Microsoft Robotics Studio 1.5 for free downloads on it's site. As of now software written for a specific robot cannot run on any other robot, but if MRS is widely adopted a third-party robotics software market could emerge. http://www.pclaunches.com/industry_buzz/microsoft_ pushing_limits_for_robotics.php"
