Mobile Robot Co. in Discussions with PC Mfgs. to Use Netbooks with Intel’s ‘Atom’ CPU

May 12, 2009

CONYERS, Ga., May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (Pink Sheets: GCKO) announced today that they have entered into substantive and confidential discussions with three of the top five personal computer manufacturers regarding usage and high volume purchase of their low cost, low power netbook computers using Intel’s Atom CPU in their “Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service(tm).”

“Because of the very favorable results in our evaluation of Intel’s Atom CPU this past year, we expect the cost/benefit ratio of netbooks to further lengthen battery life while lowering overall hardware costs for our first mobile service robot product, the CareBot(tm). We are very pleased that these first tier international manufacturers are excited and interested in this emerging marketplace, which a notable international market research firm has projected robotic component sales of $12B by 2015. These international manufacturers’ involvement will no doubt lower our costs, enhance value to the end user, and increase ROI for our investors,” stated Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.

“Our evaluations to date, in numerous fully autonomous, multitasking mobile robot prototypes, has convinced us that not only does this CPU meet our computational requirements, it also uses the least power of any x86 CPU we have evaluated to date. The low power requirements will further lengthen the battery life between chargings for our mobile service robots,” continued Spencer.

Each CareBot uses up to four computer systems such that the mobile robot can automatically self navigate, verbally interact, follow a designated person, and execute routine, timely tasks such as medication reminders, blood pressure, pulse rate checking, etc.
