Did you heard? Jerome Monceaux posted on his blog the most waited "program" of the year, in the world of robotics, and I think I do not exaggerate at all !!!


Many robotic enthusiasts are now having a chance to part in one of the most important robotic research and development company in the world Aldebaran Robotics !


I remember the days when Wow Wee made something like that for RS Media PC Suite Beta Test but with ownerswho allready had the robot or for those to use only the software! That was my first ever contact with the fascinating world of robotics!


This is your chance ... go for it!

Dear siempre.aprendiendo,

you're right about the price for the Academic version for Universities (at the moment there is no General public version, that's the Beta future goal), but this Dev Program will have special prices! the last NAO Beta Test (it was one started last year) and the robot was sold to the selected Testers for 4000 EURO; not cheap but considering the original price and the opportunity to be part of the project and the fact they will receive a second robot at the end of the program when the general Public version will be released!

I will add more details about the program as it will start roll!

If you consider it as a development program for you also not only for the Aldebaran Robotics and the informations and people you'll have access to ... I think for a robotic enthusiast it's like an Internship. :wink:

The general terms and conditions for this program are unknown at the moment and what I said about the past program can only be taken as speculation ... regarding the prices and other conditions!

Keep in touch! :)

Thanks, Horia

It's not cheap, no, but receiving two NAOs it's more affordable and open some possibilities to "share" the program...

P.S. I will post your message in some spaniards forums

Thanks!

Take into consideration that this Developers Program can be different in terms and conditions than the NAO Beta Test and the price can differ and the second NAO at the end I'm not sure it will be available for this program too!

I think it's best to wait for the official release but need to keep an eye on this because the invitations are limited!

RESPECT!

Pev, keep us informed. By the way, when did you apply for the program?

I enquired just before Christmas and they forwarded me a link to more information and offered me an invitation. Once I had the invitiation it was a 20 minute online test to qualify. I had my result very quickly. Then it has just been a case of getting the banks etc to get the fees transfered. I heard today that they will be checking everything during the first week of the new year (so in a few days time) and then dispatching the Developer's Robot.

Once I have the unit, and have had a chance to get to know it, I will post an introduction and my first thoughts.

It will be very interesting to know your opinion :)

Finally, how much is it?
