Can your Robot play AngryBirds?

So the title may be a little misleading? Not intentionally though. To those who are familiar with AngryBirds or Words with Friends, they know it was downloaded from an app store of some sort. Well now if you own a robot that has any customization available to it you soon could download an app via the Robot App Store. These apps will not be like Angry Birds and they will not run on your Mobile Phone or Tablet. They will be written for your robot directly. The apps that will be located here are all developed the same way as those for Mobile Phones, with the intention of selling these apps to increase function of a current robot. Lets say you have a Pleo (robotic Dinosaur) or an iRobot. This website/appstore service will allow a developer of an application to bringa centralized location that you as a consumer can visit to find an app to make your robot do backflips or dance to dubstep.

"RobotsAppStore allows innovative developers to make available their robot apps for secure and efficient consumer Robot App Storepurchase,” said founder Elad Inbar. “We provide the connecting medium that is helping launch personal robotics into a new era of creativity and sophistication.” The store will feature robotic apps written for all kinds of robots, from vacuum cleaners and dogs to humanoids and vehicles.

Diverse, state-of-the-art robot applications available for purchase within enable robots to extend their functionality by performing tasks such as folding laundry, feeding pets, and even playing soccer.

According to the International Federation of Robotics, the personal robotics market has increased tenfold in four years, with nine million units owned in 2010. The industry is expected to continue growing exponentially, surpassing $17 billion in five years, with an anticipated 100 million personal robots in circulation by 2018.

The promising future of robotics has led to Robot Apps development taking center stage in business, research and education settings alike. Sony, for example, has invested millions in manufacturing robotic toys, and this year alone, 250,000 high school students worldwide participated in a Lego-sponsored robot software building competitions. predicts the robot applications market is ripe and will rise at a similar rate to the mobile apps industry, which increased from 500 to 750,000 unique apps in four years, with over 18 billion downloads and $3 billion paid to developers.
