The Robot-owners have developed feelings for their robots; Many of them are actively searching for more information about their robokind friends, toys and domestic attendants. These findings are gleaned from seven months of ongoing discussion with thousands of robot-owners at the website RobotAppStore.com. According to the founder Elad Inbar, more than 70% of the website’s customer-service requests are for more information about the robots’ components and the robots themselves. This demand has led to the first-ever encyclopedia for robots– the Robopedia.
The past months were very busy at RobotAppStore.com. Thousands of people from all around the world downloaded robot-apps from the marketplace and granted new feats to their robots. Surprisingly, the users’ interaction with the website didn’t stop there. People are contacting the website’s customer-service department with requests for more information about their robots, and about the components and sensors involved in the apps they’ve downloaded.“This was a good surprise,” said Inbar, who founded RobotAppStore.com, “Our users are deeply involved with our service; More than 70% of our customer-service requests are for more information.This hunger for knowledge has triggered our team to create the first encyclopedia for robots – the Robopedia.”
According to the company, the first encyclopedia items were selected from the most common questions their users asked, but it is not going to stop there as Mr. Inbar explained: “The Robopedia is expected to keep growing; More and more items are being added every day by our community. Everyone has an opportunity to edit, or add items.” The topics cover the present and future of robots, their components and concepts. It enables beginners and seasoned developers to obtain clarity about robotics’ acronyms and terminology.Under the supervision of Anna Sander, Head of Product, the Robopedia also offers in-depth knowledgebase articles covering step-by-step application development for numerous robots.
