Text Quotes
I believe one day nano-robots will play an important role in medicine  (Colin Angle Quotes) You’re not going to talk to your vacuum cleaning robot: in fact, you may never see your vacuum cleaning robot because, ideally, you come home every day and your floors are freshly vacuumed  (Colin Angle Quotes) It’s going to be interesting to see how society deals with artificial intelligence, but it will definitely be cool.  (Colin Angle Quotes) I thought boxes were the best toy. When my parents got a new car, I ran to my mother and said, ‘Did it come in a box?’  (Colin Angle Quotes) It is clear as you look at the team why Data Point Capital has so quickly become one of the premier venture capital firms. I look forward to adding to the firm’s very bright future.  (Colin Angle Quotes) I grew up mostly in Schenectady, N.Y. From an early age, building and creating things was a real passion for me.  (Colin Angle Quotes) The utility of the robot needs to come first. It’s business model over technology.  (Colin Angle Quotes) You’re not going to talk to your vacuum cleaning robot: in fact, you may never see your vacuum cleaning robot because, ideally, you come home every day and your floors are freshly vacuumed.  (Colin Angle Quotes) I learned to canoe at summer camp and thought I’d pursue Olympic whitewater canoeing. In my senior year of high school, I instead decided to attend M.I.T. I like to say I’ve had only two jobs in my life: whitewater canoeing instructor and wilderness guide in college, and C.E.O. of iRobot.  (Colin Angle Quotes) The reason it has taken so long for the robotics industry to move forward is because people keep trying to make something that is cool but difficult to achieve rather than trying to find solutions to actual human problems. Technology can be extremely expensive if you don’t focus.  (Colin Angle Quotes) In the original ‘Star Wars’ movie, there is a small toaster-sized and shaped robot on the Death Star that guides Stormtroopers to where they need to go. I always liked that robot because I could imagine how to build it - and it served a real purpose.  (Colin Angle Quotes) The way that the robotics market is going to grow, at least in the home, is that we’ll have a number of different special purpose robots.  (Colin Angle Quotes) When I was building robots in the early 1990s, the problems of voice recognition, image understanding, VOIP, even touchscreen technologies - these were robotics problems.  (Colin Angle Quotes) We’re going to have robots in the home, but they’re not going to be walking. Legs are complicated, unreliable and costly. Robots are going to look and be designed to meet the function they’re supposed to perform. People will still name them and connect with them  (Colin Angle Quotes) We will not have humanoid androids. It’s interesting: when you start trying to make robots look more human, you end up making them look more grotesque. It takes very little to go from super-attractive robot to hideous robot  (Colin Angle Quotes) The ideal vacuum cleaner would be one you never see. It needs to not just be a cool gadget, but a product that cleans your floor correctly. I can imagine people having a cupboard full of robots that only come out when you need them to fulfil a specific purpose  (Colin Angle Quotes) What did everyone think robot vacuuming was going to be? Well, they think Rosie the Robot from ‘The Jetsons,’ a human robot that pushed a vacuum. That was never going to happen  (Colin Angle Quotes) Our 2015 financial performance will continue to be driven by our Home Robot business. Home Robot revenue is expected to grow 10% to 12% in 2015 and comprise 90% of total company revenue  (Colin Angle Quotes) When I was building robots in the early 1990s, the problems of voice recognition, image understanding, VOIP, even touchscreen technologies - these were robotics problems  (Colin Angle Quotes) I think, people are generally willing to imagine robots of all shapes, as humanoid robots are not practical  (Colin Angle Quotes) The utility of the robot needs to come first. It’s business model over technology  (Colin Angle Quotes) My very clear vision for the ideal Roomba is one you never see and you never touch. Our research priorities are explicitly focused on the Roomba of the future that will deliver on the promise of automatically cleaning your floor  (Colin Angle Quotes) It’s hard not to love Roomba. Roomba had such an amazing impact on the field. When we launched, we asked people, ‘Is it a robot?’ and got an overwhelming no - ‘robots’ have arms and legs; they command data. There was a very strong perception that robots had to look like people  (Colin Angle Quotes) My Roomba’s name is Roswell. There is the moment when you are sitting on the couch and Roomba turns itself on and goes out and starts working. You really appreciate it because it works hard for you, and it deserves some kind of recognition  (Colin Angle Quotes) Robotic toys can be very interesting, but it is important that the toy not ‘dictate’ how the child should play with it. Rather, it should take its cues from the child and enhance, teach, and enrich the play experience. We incorporated some of these features into a robotic baby doll we built for Hasbro in 1999  (Colin Angle Quotes) Robotics has been around forever, and it’s been the next big thing forever, and it is so exciting and compelling that it’s easy to get carried away. People almost always do, and that’s one of the things that has held back the industry  (Colin Angle Quotes) Starting out, iRobot was not an economic rocket ship. It took six and a half years before we had enough money in the bank at the beginning of each month to make payroll. We always made it - we paid salaries at the end of the month, and I always had four weeks to figure things out  (Colin Angle Quotes) The idea that a robot will become more aware of its environment, that telling it to ‘go to the kitchen’ means something - navigation and understanding of the environment is a robot problem. Those are the technological frontiers of the robotics industry  (Colin Angle Quotes) Building a robot that has legs and walks around is a very expensive proposition. Mother Nature has created many wonderful things, but one thing we do have that nature doesn’t is the wheel, a continuous rotating joint, and tracks, so we need to make use of inventions to make things simpler.  (Colin Angle Quotes)
