Mobile Robot Co. in Discussions with PC Mfgs. to Use Netbooks with Intel's 'Atom' CPU



    CONYERS, Ga., May 12 /CNW/ -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (Pink Sheets:  
GCKO) announced today that they have entered into substantive and confidential
discussions with three of the top five personal computer manufacturers
regarding usage and high volume purchase of their low cost, low power netbook
computers using Intel's Atom CPU in their "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety,
Security and Service(tm)."

    "Because of the very favorable results in our evaluation of Intel's Atom
CPU this past year, we expect the cost/benefit ratio of netbooks to further
lengthen battery life while lowering overall hardware costs for our first
mobile service robot product, the CareBot(tm).  We are very pleased that these
first tier international manufacturers are excited and interested in this
emerging marketplace, which a notable international market research firm has
projected robotic component sales of $12B by 2015. These international
manufacturers' involvement will no doubt lower our costs, enhance value to the
end user, and increase ROI for our investors," stated Martin Spencer,
President/CEO, GeckoSystems.

    "Our evaluations to date, in numerous fully autonomous, multitasking
mobile robot prototypes, has convinced us that not only does this CPU meet our
computational requirements, it also uses the least power of any x86 CPU we
have evaluated to date. The low power requirements will further lengthen the
battery life between chargings for our mobile service robots," continued
Spencer.

    Each CareBot uses up to four computer systems such that the mobile robot
can automatically self navigate, verbally interact, follow a designated
person, and execute routine, timely tasks such as medication reminders, blood
pressure, pulse rate checking, etc.
