Working on Jimmy has been an amazing collaborative process. From our quickly expanding Olin team to the many people around the country that we have had the opportunity to speak with and learn from, Jimmy has a lot of great minds working to make his concept a reality. The 21st Century Robotics Project is incredibly ambitious and despite the themes in my favorite Isaac Asimov and Philip K. Dick sci-fi stories, I am incredibly excited to see how it unfolds. I see robotics as the 21st century disruptive technology that will mark a new era in social and scientific progress.
