GeckoSystems Reveals Eldercare Capable Personal Robot Sales Forecasts

    CONYERS, Ga., May 18 /CNW/ -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (Pink Sheets:  
GCKO) announced today their eldercare capable personal robot sales forecasts
for the years 2010 to 2014.  GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging
Mobile Service Robot (MSR) industry revolutionizing their development and
usage with "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service(tm)."

    "We have always been a market driven company. At the time of our
founding, nearly twelve years ago, we did extensive primary market research to
determine the demographic profile of the early adopters of our then proposed
CareBot(tm) MSR product.  Subsequent to, and based on that original market
research, we have assembled numerous focus groups to evaluate the benefit of
our CareBots' design goals into the participant's lives and their expected
usage. We have also frequently employed the Delphi market research
methodology. We used factual, statistically valid data of internally performed
primary and secondary market research, and third party research by reputable
organizations such as the U.S. Census Bureau, MetLife, ABI Research, Strategy
Analytics, the United Nations, et al. While our forecasts may seem optimistic,
their magnitude does explain the formidable international competition we face
from Japan, South Korea, France, Germany and the U.S.  For example, the
Japanese government has granted over $100M in R&D funding for the successful
development of eldercare home robots amongst their leading international
manufacturers in the last ten years," elaborated Martin Spencer,

    "We project the available market size in dollars for cost effective,
utilitarian, multitasking eldercare personal robots in 2010 to be $74.0B, in
2011 to be $77B, in 2012 to be $80B, in 2013 to be $83.3B, and in 2014 to be
$86.6B.  With market penetrations of 0.03% in 2010, 0.06% in 2011, 0.22% in
2012, 0.53% in 2013, and 0.81% in 2014, we will anticipate sales, from this
consumer market segment, only, of $22.0M, $44.0M, $176M, $440.2M, and $704.3M,
respectively.  We expect these sales despite -- and perhaps because of -- the
present recession due to pent up demand for significant cost reduction in
eldercare expenses," concluded Spencer.

    About GeckoSystems International Corporation:
    In the nearly twelve years since its founding, GeckoSystems has developed
a suite of proprietary, fundamental technologies that enable their robots to
automatically self-navigate the home or workplace using advanced sense and

errand running, portable telemedicine, etc.
