HOUSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 26, 2012 — As Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) works to help deliver the next generation of personal assistance robots, consumers may soon be surprised to discover that cutting-edge ‘bots don’t need arms or legs to change lives.
In Buffalo, N.Y., a sleek and nimble robot on wheels produced by VGo Communications is allowing a seven-year-old boy confined by allergies to life in a bubble to attend school with other children his age. The fully mobile VGo machine is outfitted with two-way audio and video, allowing student Devon Carrow to interact with his classmates in the classroom, the library and school assemblies.
Another hot new project from a startup company called Galileo offers the promise of an iOS-controlled robotic iPhone platform capable of tilting and panning remotely during a video chat session. Upon its release, users chatting via iPhone can look around the room or follow a speaker during sessions.
Quantum is working on deals that could deliver similar robotics innovations soon.
“While not humanoid in appearance, these remote, wireless devices represent the future of consumer robotics,” said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. “We can’t wait to show our shareholders and robotics enthusiasts worldwide what we’ve got planned to compete.”
Quantum is already pursuing potentially lucrative new robotics targets around the globe. The company is working on a deal with the prestigious Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurements (PIAP) in Warsaw, Poland.
In addition, Quantum recently signed an NDA with university researchers in Houston to discuss a possible collaboration on an external brain-to-computer interface technology.
Quantum is focused on aggressive growth as it competes alongside robotics companies including iRobot Corp. (NASDAQ: IRBT), AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV) and Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISRG).
