The White House is Looking for a Few Good Robots
Listen up, roboticists who need funding. As part of the President's FY2012 Budget, the White House has combined five Fed agencies for small business research to create grants for Robotics Technology Development and Deployment. Specifically, your robotics company can apply for funding for developing service bots, drug discovery bots and those that can disarm military bombs. DARPA will be overseeing the funding of the latter and although the grant may not make you rich, it can certainly help you develop your ideas.
If you want more information on any of the three opportunities, check out the link to the entire announcement. Applications must be submitted by December 20, 2010. Let us know if yours is accepted and details as we promise to be almost as excited as you are.
