Microsoft Releases Robotics Studio Free

from Erico Guizzo at IEEE Spectrum:

Over the past year or so, Microsoft’s robotics group has been working quietly, very quietly. That’s because, among other things, they were busy planning a significant strategy shift.

Microsoft is upping the ante on its robotics ambitions by announcing today that its Robotics Developer Studio, or RDS, a big package of programming and simulation tools, is now available to anyone for free.

The Microsoft RDS supports a number of hardware platforms, including the Lego Mindstorms NXT, iRobot Create and Parallax Boe-Bot, and it provides a physics-based simulation environment to allow you to test your designs.

  2. Neat, but their licensing is still restrictive
