QUAN: Could Google Android Tablets Surpass the Apple iPad in Robotics Applications?
QUAN: Could Google Android Tablets Surpass the Apple iPad in Robotics Applications? Business Wire HOUSTON -- August 13, 2012 With the stunning interface, processing and connectivity capabilities of the Apple (AAPL) iPad pushing robotics in incredible new directions, Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) is also exploring emerging technologies leveraging similar capabilities from Apple’s greatest rivals—devices running Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) Android OS. Apple’s iPhone might lay claim to being the world’s first touchscreen smartphone, but Google owns the bragging right to the first smartphone to have assisted NASA astronauts on a space flight mission. Samsung’s Nexus One Android OS devices controlled spherical robots called SPHERES that were launched into space aboard the space shuttle Atlantis. Once deployed, SPHERES assisted astronauts in surveying routine maintenance work in orbit. There are promising new Android robotics innovations at work closer to home, as well. Surveyor recently debuted an open-source Android control interface for robots such as its SRV-1. Now, users can control Android smartphone-powered robots remotely. “Apple has garnered most of the headlines, but developers are quietly making astonishing robotics breatkthroughs using Android devices, as well,” said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. “Because Google Android is an open-source platform, it’s possible that Android tablets and smartphones could soon surpass Apple devices as the tech of choice among roboticists. Quantum International is hard at work seeking out the next great Android-powered robots ready for large-scale commercialization.” For more information on Quantum International’s robotics initiatives, please visit www.quantuminnovators.com/investors.html.
