You Can Now Own Willow Garage's Pool-Playing, Laundry-Folding, Beer-Fetching PR2 Robot

There's not much the PR2 can't do at this point. It hustles pool. It folds laundry. It (arguably) applies prophylactics. And as of today, it can do all of these things as your personal robot slave. If you're filthy rich.


The asking price for the PR2 is a cool $400,000, although discounts amounting to $120,000 are available for people with "a successful track record in the open source community." So get in line, all you billionaire Linuxheads! The robot butler of your dreams—seriously, it's open source! You can make it do pretty much whatever you want within the bounds of municipal legality—can be yours today. [Willow Garage]
