It is important to note that the Asian Times Online article rightly indicates that price and performance issues must be addressed for this class of product to succeed in the market. The article goes on to state that consumers tend to have inflated expectations of the performance of robotic products largely due to the images and functionality of robots and robotic technology portrayed in popular culture (thank you C3PO). This belief is widely held throughout the robotics industry, largely because it is true. The article goes on to state that the third gating factor to robotic market success, the lack of standards, will be addressed by the Korean Advanced Intelligent Robot Association (KAIRA), which is developing standards for network-based intelligent robots, as well as a common technical standard for robots for teenagers. Robotics developers across the globe can now sleep more soundly knowing that robotic standards for teenagers has been added to the rapidly growing list of robotics standards from which they may choose.
