P3-DX robot is not $40k

Jeanne Dietsch of MobileRobots said several robotics bloggers have been chattering about a line in my robotics story earlier this week that suggested the price of the company’s P3-DX is $40,000. Turns out, it’s more like $4,000. The executive at Microsoft who told me the price of the robot was apparently wrong. (I placed a call to him today to check that he wasn’t referring to something else, but I haven’t heard back so far.) Sorry for the confusion.

Update: Both the Microsoft exec, Tandy Trower, and Dietsch said today that $4,000 is the base price for the P3-DX. Microsoft bought four of them outfitted with “advanced laser mapping and autonomous navigation software, laser bumpers, gyros, wireless, etc, etc for $76,000, or $19,000 each,” Dietsch said, adding, “We did give them a reduced price, however. We didn’t charge them for the Windows OS!”
