Compelled to comment on the post below from Alarm Clock which was taking a look at investment levels across start-ups developing robotics technologies.
“Venture capitalists tend to be fairly conservative people – despite their reputation for risk taking. Consequently, few robot-makers have received venture funding as many VCs put the likelihood of robot products succeeding on a par with anyone conquering jet-pack transportation”.
Well, not so at No 8 Ventures.  The Martin Jetpack hit world headlines in July this year.  What’s more, we are excited about the prospect of introducing a very cool robotics company soon.
