I’ve been trying to keep track of industry news, and at the moment
it seems as to me as if everyone is either blogging about the Apple iPhone (Engadget blog) or Windows Vista (Windows Vista Team blog). However, the announcement that caught my attention recently was the launch of the ‘Microsoft Robotics Studio‘ (IET).
The story briefly mentions Microsoft’s plan to "establish standards for controlling robots", but didn’t go into technical details, although I managed to find some useful background in Bill Gates‘ article ‘A robot in every home‘ (Scientific American).
