Microsoft Needs to Build Robots

I haven’t heard anything coming from Microsoft Robotics in some time. I think the reason is because of Microsoft always holding the position of “we just build the platform”. Microsoft was able to get away with that during the early IBM PC days because IBM built the product, but couldn’t build all of it, so they relied on Microsoft. So unless some robot maker comes to Microsoft and does the same thing there’s little reason for makers to use Microsoft’s platform. For goodness sake Japanese car companies show off their advanced robots. Do they sell them? Perhaps, but I don’t think so. Why can’t Microsoft show off instrument playing walking robots? The reason is because of Microsoft’s just-the-platform attitude. Will Microsoft ever make money selling robots? Probably not. But would making robots to show everyone what their platform could do sell the platform. I certainly would hope so.
