In a startling bit of news, Microsoft has just announced that their Robotics Developer Studio (RDS) software will be available to anyone… for free.



In the past, Microsoft RDS has been distributed in several versions, only the most limited of which was free. Now Microsoft intends to open the doors and bring RDS to the masses- a move which could prove hugely successful, or potentially fatal.

Microsoft believes that by opening up their software to the public, they’ll help to spark a revolution in consumer robotics, and begin a new era in technology.

Usually that can only mean that MS now has something that's orders of magnitudes better than this one they're now releasing for "free." (Yeah...sometimes you still get what you pay for).

But...hey...it is free for the tinkering and if it works then free is a good thing.

Nice find!!

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
