U.S. Mobile Robot Co. Reveals Pacific Rim Sales Forecasts

    CONYERS, Ga., May 14 /CNW/ -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (Pink Sheets:  
GCKO) announced today their Pacific Rim personal robot sales forecasts in the
eldercare markets 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)."

    For over ten years the company has had numerous market size discussions
with significant international firms in China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong,
and Taiwan. The Delphi market research methodology indicates two disparate
markets in China: One is the very large market segment (i.e. many millions of
families) of new millionaires looking to make prestige purchases of new
Buicks, etc. Last month GM sold over 38,000 Buicks in China. At an annual run
rate of over $10B, these prestige purchasers are very profitable for GM and
can be for GeckoSystems. The other significant Chinese market is for care of
the 20,000,000 plus elderly living in dormitories due to their only child
working in the industrialized cities. These two market segments alone indicate
a Chinese marketplace of several billions of dollars in the next five to seven

    In the last decade, the Japanese government has granted over $100M in
aggregate R&D funding to their leading international manufacturers to develop
personal robots suitable for eldercare. Sources within the Japanese government
project their domestic market to range from $26B in 2010 and to nearly $70B by
2025 for personal robots.

    "Consequently, at minimum, we project the available Pacific Rim market
size in dollars for cost effective, utilitarian, multi-tasking personal robots
suitable for eldercare in 2010 to be $22.0B; in 2011 to be $23B; in 2012 to be
$24B; in 2013 to be $25B; and in 2014 to be $26B. With market penetrations of
0.009% in 2010, 0.024% in 2011, 0.077% in 2012, 0.29% in 2013, and 0.61% in
2014, we expect international sales, from these consumer markets only, of
$2.0M, $5.5M, $18.5M, $72.6M, and $158.6M, respectively," stated Martin
Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.

    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
avoid technologies for reliable, unattended collision avoidance while
patrolling, following and/or errand running. The Company's mobile robot
solutions are appropriate for the consumer, professional healthcare,
commercial security/public safety and defense markets.  The consumer needs
cost effective family care assistance for their children, chronically ill, and
elderly family members with remote monitoring and adverse event notification. 
Professional healthcare needs cost effective errand running, portable
telemedicine, etc. The Company's business model is very much like that of an
automobile manufacturer.
