Press Release Source: GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. On Tuesday March 23, 2010, 4:27 pm
CONYERS, GA--(Marketwire - 03/23/10) - GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (Pinksheets:GCKO - News) -- a dynamic leader in the emerging mobile robotics industry, revolutionizing their development and usage with "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service™", announces today, that during their upcoming "Mobile Robots in Motion" Conference, they will be demonstrating a live video monitoring feed from one of their "world's first" in-home eldercare robot trials' participants.

"We are very excited to have secured permission from one of our elder care robot trial participants to show a live video feed of their elderly mothers' activities. This caregiver is a baby boomer and her elderly mother is in her mid-nineties. We will be monitoring real time streaming video of the caregiver's mother and the CareBot's™ ability to wake up automatically when she arises in the morning then, gracefully follow her as she moves about in her home. We are thrilled and very appreciative to have received permission to reveal how the CareBot™ system performs in the private home," Martin Spencer, President/CEO of GeckoSystems revealed.

"We use multiple layers of sensors and sensor systems to achieve what is best described as 'actionable situational awareness.' For example, our CareBots™ are capable of powering down unnecessary systems to lengthen battery life while the subject sleeps, then power back up automatically should the elderly subject get out of bed in the middle of the night. The CareBot™ 'watches over' the care receiver using a scientifically developed fusion of sonar, active infrared, passive infrared, etc. to enable the CareBot™ to be aware of the care receiver's movements, so that GeckoTrak™ can guide GeckoNav™ to stay proximate to the subject so that GeckoChat™ can have verbal interaction with her. The GeckoSuper™ then determines whether and/or when to automatically notify the caregiver that the subject is 'up and about' and may need the care giver to look in personally, either over the video camera, or with a physical visit," stated Spencer.

"Our revolutionary system of modern eldercare will postpone, if not eliminate, many elderly persons from having to endure the loneliness and loss of independence due to leaving their own homes and living in nursing homes or other assisted living facilities. Their families can now better manage the difficult decisions regarding independence they're able to allow their now dependent aged parent, while minimizing the concern and risk the adult care giving child is willing to assume to enable an acceptable level of independence and consequential risks (to the caregiver) for their now dependent parent," Spencer concluded.

The "Mobile Robots in Motion" conference will be held at GeckoSystems' new 4,000 square feet R&D and manufacturing facility just south of Conyers, Georgia in nearby Honey Creek. Attendees, perhaps some from JETRO, will be able to witness not only our flagship product; the CareBot™, but also our proprietary automatic self-navigation software; GeckoNav™, and the reality that they have a complete multitasking personal companion robot, the CareBot™, with voice interaction and 'command and control' capabilities arising from GeckoChat™, verbal reminders from GeckoChat™ and GeckoScheduler™ and the ability to routinely follow a designated family member with GeckoTrak™. The personal companion robot; "the CareBot™", has now been in limited evaluation trials for just over three months.

GCKO - GeckoSystems Reveals Licensing Opportunities at "Mobile Robots in Motion" Conference
On Thursday March 25, 2010, 12:05 am

CONYERS, GA--(Marketwire - 03/25/10) - GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (Pinksheets:GCKO - News) (http://www.geckosystems.com ) -- announced today at their "Mobile Robots in Motion" Conference that they are now soliciting business-to-business licensing opportunities for their "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security, and Service™."

"For the past three months we have been using our suite of mobile robot solutions in our first business-to-consumer (B2C) product, the CareBot™, in our elder care robot trials. During this real world testing we have gained sufficient confidence to offer these proprietary solutions to those firms and/or individuals interested in manufacturing and distributing into the various business-to-business (B2B) markets such as professional healthcare, commercial security, public safety, and government. Demonstrably GeckoSystems has viable, cost effective solutions for not only software navigation, verbal interaction, and event scheduling; but also multiple, low cost sensor fusion solutions and differential drive locomotion management," remarked Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.

GeckoNav™ is the GeckoSavant™ developed by GeckoSystems that enables their mobile robots to express reliable automatic self-navigation and avoid unforeseen obstacles whether static and/or dynamic while ambulating. This is achieved using a low clock, low power x86 CPU. Sometimes this level of autonomy is referred to as "loose crowd capable" due to its fully autonomous (hands off) ability to automatically path find through a loose crowd of moving people.

Another GeckoSavant, GeckoChat™, uses voice recognition/synthesis and a forward chaining expert system to enable verbal interaction and/or command and control of the CareBot. GeckoScheduler™ is a date and time aware database manager that provides the CareBot with event timing for verbal reminders, errand running, patrolling, tracking, etc. Common sense management and coordination between all GeckoSavants is accomplished using the GeckoSuper™.

GeckoOrient™ fuses sensor data from three disparate orientation subsystems to achieve better absolute accuracy than any single orientation subsystem, without accumulative error, but at lower cost than a single high accuracy device.

GeckoSystems' CompoundedSensorArray™ displaces expensive and slow machine vision solutions with sufficient situation awareness of the environment to enable GeckoNav to avoid even unexpected obstacles while patrolling, following, or errand running.

The GeckoSPIO™ is their robot controller board that orchestrates, collects and disseminates hundreds of sensor data inputs per second. Additionally it enables management of the locomotion system in near real time using the GeckoMotorController™ which not only minimizes power consumption by careful, adaptive management of the acceleration and de-acceleration of the locomotion motors' speeds, but also enables differential drives to travel in a straight line when requested to do so.

"For nearly four years we have worked to develop, debug, refine and test all the foregoing mobile robot solutions, and more. All of our proprietary solutions have been designed to be portable and extensible. I am very pleased to be making these solutions available to those in the B2B markets presently engaged, or considering involvement in the emerging industry of mobile robotics," commented Mark Peele, Vice President, R&D, GeckoSystems.

About GeckoSystems International Corporation:


Since 1997, GeckoSystems has developed a comprehensive, coherent, and sufficient suite of hardware and software inventions to enable a new type of home appliance (a personal robot) the CareBot™, to be created for the mass consumer marketplace. The suite of primary inventions includes: GeckoNav™, GeckoChat™ and GeckoTrak™.


The primary market for this product is the family for use in eldercare, care for the chronically ill, and childcare. The primary distribution channel for this new home appliance is the thousands of independent personal computer retailers in the U.S. The manufacturing infrastructure for this new product category of mobile service robots is essentially the same as the personal computer industry. Several outside contract manufacturers have been identified and qualified their ability to produce up to 1,000 CareBots per month within four to six months.


The Company is market driven. At the time of founding, over twelve years ago, the Company did extensive primary market research to determine the demographic profile of the early adopters of the then proposed product line. Subsequent to, and based on that original market research, they have assembled numerous focus groups to evaluate the fit of the CareBot personal robot into the participant's lives and their expected usage. The Company has also frequently employed the Delphi market research methodology by contacting and interviewing senior executives, practitioners, and researchers knowledgeable in the area of elder care. Using this factual basis of internally performed primary and secondary market research, and third party research is the statistical substance for the Company's sales forecasts.


Not surprisingly the scientific statistical analyses applied revealed that elderly over sixty-five living alone in metropolitan areas with broadband Internet available and sufficient household incomes to support the increased costs were identified as those most likely to adopt initially. Due to the high cost of assisted living, nursing homes, etc. the payback for a CareBot™ is expected to be only six to eight months while keeping elderly care receivers independent, in their own long time homes, and living longer due to the comfort and safety of more frequent attention from their loved ones.


"We project the available market size in dollars for cost effective, utilitarian, multitasking eldercare personal robots in 2011 to be $74.0B, in 2012 to be $77B, in 2013 to be $80B, in 2014 to be $83.3B, and in 2015 to be $86.6B. With market penetrations of 0.03% in 2011, 0.06% in 2012, 0.22% in 2013, 0.53% in 2014, and 0.81% in 2015, we will anticipate CareBot 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," opined Spencer.


The foregoing forecasts do not include sales in non-metropolitan areas; elderly couples over 65 (only elderly living alone are in these forecasts); those chronically ill -- regardless of age -- or elderly living with their adult children.


The Company's "mobile robot solutions for safety, security and service™" are appropriate not only for the consumer, but also professional healthcare, commercial security and defense markets. Professional healthcare require cost effective, timely errand running, portable telemedicine, etc. Homeland Security requires cost effective mobile robots to patrol and monitor public venues for weapons and WMD detection. Military users desire the elimination of the "man in the loop" to enable unmanned ground and air vehicles to not require constant human control and/or intervention.


The Company's business model is very much like that of an automobile manufacturer. Due to the final assembly, test, and shipping being done based on geographic and logistic realities; strategic business-to-business relationships can range from private labeling to joint manufacturing and distribution to licensing only.


Several dozen patent opportunities exist for the Company due to the many innovative and cost effective breakthroughs embodied not only in GeckoNav, GeckoChat, and GeckoTrak, but also in additional, secondary systems that include: GeckoOrient™, GeckoMotorController™, the GeckoTactileShroud™, the CompoundedSensorArray™, and the GeckoSPIO™.


The present senior management at GeckoSystems has over thirty-five years experience in consumer electronics sales and marketing and product development. Senior managers have been identified for the areas of manufacturing, marketing, sales, and finance.


While GeckoSystems has been in the Development Stage, the Company has accumulated losses to date in excess of six million dollars. In contrast, the Japanese government has spent one hundred million dollars in grants (to Sanyo, Toshiba, Hitachi, Fujitsu, NEC, etc.) over the same time period to develop personal robots for their eldercare crisis, yet no viable solutions have been developed.


GeckoSystems is the first mobile robot developer in the world to begin actual in-home eldercare evaluation trials.


What Does a CareBot Do for the Care Giver?

r>

The short answer is that it decreases the difficulty and stress for the caregiver that needs to watch over Grandma, Mom, or other family members most, if not much, of the time day in and day out due to concerns about their well being, safety, and security.


But, first let's look at some other labor saving, automatic home appliances most of us use routinely. For example, needing to do two or more necessary chores and/or activities at the same time, like laundering clothes and preparing supper.


The automatic washing machine needs no human intervention after the dirty clothes are placed in the washer, the laundry powder poured in, and the desired wash cycle set. Then, this labor saving appliance runs automatically until the washed clothes are ready to be placed in another labor saving home appliance, the automatic clothes dryer. While the clothes are being washed and/or dried, the caregiver prepares supper using several time saving home appliances like the microwave oven, "crock" pot, blender, and conventional stove, with possible convection oven capabilities.


After supper, the dirty pots, pans, and dishes are placed in the automatic dishwasher to be washed and dried while the family retires to the den to watch TV, and/or the kids to do homework. Later, perhaps after the kids have gone to bed, the caregiver may then have the time to fold, sort, and put up the now freshly laundered clothes.


So what does a CareBot do for the caregiver? It is a new type of labor saving, time management automatic home appliance.


For example, the care giver frequently feels time stress when they need to go shopping for 2 or 3 hours, and are uncomfortable when they have to be away for more than an hour or so. Time stress is much worse for the caregiver with a frail elderly parent that must be reminded to take medications at certain times of the day. How can the caregiver be away for 3-4 hours when Grandma must take her prescribed medication every 2 or 3 hours? If the caregiver is trapped in traffic for an hour or two beyond the 2 or 3 they expected to be gone, this "time stress" can be very difficult for the caregiver to moderate.


Not infrequently, the primary caregiver has a 24 hour, 7 days a week responsibility. After weeks and weeks of this sometimes tedious, if not onerous routine, how does the caregiver get a "day off?" To bring in an outsider is expensive (easily $75-125 per day for just 8 hours) and there is the concern that medication will be missed or the care receiver have an accident requiring immediate assistance by the caregiver, or someone they must designate. And the care receiver may be very resistant to a "stranger" coming in to her home and "running things."


So what is it worth for a care receiver to have an automatic system to help take care of Grandma? Just 3 or 4 days a month "off" on a daylong shopping trip, a visit with friends, or just take in a movie would cost $225-500 per month. And that scenario assumes that Grandma is willing to be taken care of by a "stranger" during those needed and appropriate days off.


So perhaps, an automatic caregiver, a CareBot, might be pretty handy, and potentially very cost effective from the primary caregiver's perspective.


What Does a CareBot Do for the Care Receiver?


It's a new kind of companion that always stays close to them enabling family and friends to care for them from afar. It tells them jokes, retells family anecdotes, reminds them to take medication, reminds them that family is coming over soon (or not at all), recites Bible verses, plays favorite songs and/or other music. It alerts them when unexpected visitors, or intruders are present. It notifies designated caregivers when a potentially harmful event has occurred, such as a fall, fire in the home, or simply been not found by the CareBot for too long. It responds to calls for help and notifies those that the caregiver determined should be immediately notified when any predetermined adverse event occurs.


The family can customize the personality of the CareBot. The voice's cadence can be fast or slow. The intonation can be breathy, or abrupt. The voice's volume can range from very loud to very soft. The response phrases from the CareBot for recognized words and phrases can be colloquial and/or unique to the family's own heritage. The personality can range from brassy to timid depending on how the care giver, and others appropriate, chooses it to be.


Generally, the care receiver is pleased at the prospect of family being able to drop in for a "virtual visit" using the onboard webcam and video monitor for at home "video conferencing." The care receiver may feel much more needed and appreciated when their far flung family and friends can "look in" on them any where in the world where they can get broadband internet access and simply chat for a bit.


Why is Grandma really interested in a CareBot? She wants to stay in her home, or her family's home, as long as she possibly can. What's that worth? Priceless. Or, an average nursing home is $5,000 per month for an environment that is too often the beginning of a spiral downward in the care receiver's health. That's probably $2-3K more per month for them to be placed where they really don't want to be. Financial payback on a CareBot? Less than a year- Emotional payback for the family to have this new automatic care giver? Nearly instantaneous-

Cost Effective Monitoring
The CareBot™ MSR monitors the carereceiver . Elderly people in nursing homes receive attention from nurses an average of nine minutes per day. These places are expensive ($45,000 to $60,000 per year) and not always easy or convenient for family members to physically visit. There is a crisis for cost effective assistance. Concern for their parents is one of the main reasons for adult children to purchase an elder care enabled CareBot™ MSR.


Virtual Visits
Working parents of all ages seek assistance in caring for their children as a result of working long hours, and having to commute to and from their workplace. The ability to virtually visit their children from work, during travel, or anywhere they have Internet access is now possible. Working mothers and fathers can watch their children routinely in a window on their computer monitors while at work.


Automatic Reminders
The CareBot™ MSR reminds the carereceiver to take medication, reminds them that family is coming over soon (or not at all), It alerts them when unexpected visitors, or intruders are present. It will keep track of doctor’s visits.


Companionship
The CareBot™ MSR is a new kind of companion that always stays close to the carereceiver enabling family and friends to care for them from afar. It will hold various levels of conversation with the carereceiver. The personality, voice, and phrases can be customized.


Automatic Emergency Notification
The CareBot™ MSR alerts them when unexpected visitors, or intruders are present. It notifies designated caregivers when a potentially harmful event has occurred, such as a fall, fire in the home, or the person has simply not been found by the CareBot™ for too long. It responds to calls for help. It can call 911 or before resorting to 911, work its way through a list of designated emergency contacts.

Consumer Market
Our focus is family care for the elderly, chronically ill, and children. What does it do? Let’s you remotely see how they are doing using the onboard wireless webcam and ability to automatically follow Grandma or little Johnny. Should Grandma, or Johnny, not respond to our CareBot’s™ inquiries, you, or other designated caregivers would be contacted by GeckoChat™ immediately by phone.

Professional Healthcare Market

Our focus is making nurses more efficient and productive with less work by them. What’s it do? Enables nurses to video conference doctors in for more timely diagnosis of patients while carrying all the specialized supplies and equipment the IV or wound care nursing specialists might need. At night the MSR can deliver bed pans, medications, even take vital signs, etc. to those in need while the night shift nurses are busy with a crisis on their wing or floor

The company has developed a real-time automatic navigation control system called GeckoNav. GeckoNav is based on a Fuzzy Hybrid Architecture providing the benefits of both proactive control and reaction within a single framework. Fuzzy Logic and Subsumption architecture are used to enable the fully autonomous AI behavior for the Mobile Service Robot (MSR) to sense and avoid dynamic and static obstacles in its environment.

GeckoNav runs on a PC to take full advantage of the high processing power available to today's computers to achive a phenomenal update rate of 20ms or less. The GeckoNav Architecture is fully expandable through a variety of standard interfaces.

GeckoChat™

GeckoChat is a conversational AI system that allows the user to verbally interact with those GSI systems that have GeckoChat bilateral communication capability. For instance, GeckoChat provides a verbal interface for a pre-identified user to request answers to questions entered by a caregiver or family member, to create reminders for important events, or to pass the time with a joke or word game. Also, the Mobile Service Robot has a way to relate information it observes about both its world and its internal state through GeckoChat. By combining these system-specific capabilities with the standalone functionality of GeckoChat, GeckoSystems provides a robust method to increase interactivity and autonomy in any domain where automated speech recognition and synthesis would be beneficial.

GeckoTrak™

GeckoTrak uses recently developed GeckoSystems software that merges and interprets data from three different sensor systems to achieve sensor fusion such that it can automatically follow a designated person anywhere in their home. Our latest MSR addition enables our CareBot to timely remind Grandma, or others, to take medications, of favorite TV shows coming on and other routine reminders by always being close by and within easy hearing distance. The low power requirements of this system allows our CareBot to maintain a constant monitoring state for ten hours or more between chargings.

GeckoSPIO™

The GeckoSPIO provides the interface for for all the higher-level software to the low-level/physical systems of the MSR. This includes motor control, power control and sensor systems. The GeckoSPIO is a robust robot control board with hundreds of digital IO pins, dozens of Analog-to-Digital pins and a dozen serial interfaces. It is also readily expandable and extensible with a logical hierarchal architecture and a pair of standard Ethernet ports as the interface to the high-level systems. The seven on board processors and available connections to other processors give the GeckoSPIO the computing power and through-put to read and send the data from hundreds of sensors a second, preform a certain level of sensor fusion tasks and precise motor control.

BaseBot™
GeckoSystems has a standard set of fundamental requirements for what it considers to be necessary technology for a utilitarian MSR called BaseBot Technology. This technology is a collection of minimum needed mechanical, electronic hardware, and software components required for a utilitarian MSR.

Power is one of the requirements for a BaseBot compatible robot platform. The power available must be sufficient to drive the locomotion system, sensors, hardware, and software onboard the platform. A minimum of eight hours battery life of typical operation is necessary to meet the power requirements of the BaseBot standard.

The mechanical requirement of a BaseBot encompasses the drive system and physical build specifications. The drive system must be capable of allowing the robot to traverse a 1.5 inch vertical height. A 100 pound payload capacity is needed to support the typical onboard weight and expandability of the platform.

Sensory requirements are another piece of the BaseBot Technology standard. The sensory requirements are also needed to support the navigational requirements. The type and number of sensors varies according to the operation environment of the MSR. One sensor system is usually not sufficient for the functional requirements of the navigational software and therefore would not meet the BaseBot standard.

Navigation software is the final component of a BaseBot enabled mobile service robot. The navigation software must be able to successfully navigate using the sensory and locomotion system of the platform. Successful navigation includes but is not limited to avoiding dynamic objects in the environment. Additionally, the navigation software must be capable of navigating crowded, moving areas of people and not harm an individual.

GeckoZap™
GeckoZap is a debugging, testing, and calibration utility used for operating the Mobile Service Robot from GeckoSystems, or any other hardware/firmware platform compliant with our standards. This application is a user-interface that allows the developer to manually send the mobile robot commands which would normally be sent automatically by GeckoNav. The user can test functionality of the mobile robot by sending/retrieving data and commanding the Mobile Service Robot's movements. For example, GeckoZap makes the packet assembly and serial transmission transparent to the user by providing a "point-and-click" interface for these operations.

CareBot™

A CareBot™ MSR is built on a BaseBot using GeckoNav, GeckoChat, and GeckoTrak to perform timely and cost effective duties for care givers to better care for their care receivers. GeckoZap is used by the support personnel to perform maintenance on the CareBot . The Consumer Familycare discussion can be accessed here.

Commercial Security Market

Our focus is dramatically improving surveillance in our post 9/11 world at lower cost and greater efficacy than human guards. For example, human guards would tire quickly hauling WMD detection systems. Our SecurityBot™ MSR’s do not.

Defense Industry

Our MSR’s can explore urban dwellings while looking for human inhabitants --automatically-- without any human invention or control. This can save lives by placing our troops back one step from an unforeseen ambush

GeckoSystems Reveals Their Mobile Robot Solutions' Revenue Forecasts
CONYERS, GA, Apr 07, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) (http://www.geckosystems.com/) reported today that while they consider the business-to-business (B2B) market place to be more risk averse than the consumer, despite that reality, they have some forecasts as to what those licensing revenues could realistically become. GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging mobile robotics industry revolutionizing their development and usage with "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service(TM)."

"In the past we have only forecasted our revenues from the business-to-consumer (B2C) marketplace. Just as consumers were the early adopters when the first personal computers were introduced, we expect consumers, again, to adopt in significant volumes before corporate America. Nonetheless, while the consumer market is larger than the professional healthcare, commercial security, and public safety markets combined, we expect those markets to add another 50% in gross revenues to our B2C forecasts in the first three years and only 33% additional in years four and five. This is particularly interesting since the cost of sales for these additional B2B revenue streams is less than half of that for consumers. The reality is that all R&D expenses are charged against consumer sales while only incremental costs of sales and supporting the B2B sales are charged against B2B revenues.

"For example, should GeckoSystems enjoy a 50% gross margin on consumer sales, it is possible, if not probable, that B2B sales would enjoy an 80% gross margin. So if we hold total B2B revenues to only one half of that of B2C (for the first three years), those forecasts would be, from these B2B market segments only, of $11.0M, $22.0M, $88M, $146.7M, and $234.7M, respectively. Further, our net profit after taxes could climb from our projected 20% to over 30%. These additional B2B revenues could push our gross revenues to over $900 million annually by June 31, 2016. While we are not relying heavily on B2B revenues, recently we have started soliciting in those marketplaces at RoboticsTrends.com. For the foregoing reasons and many others, we expect our numerous B2B opportunities to further increase ROI for our investors," opined Martin Spencer, President/CEO, GeckoSystems.

The foregoing discussion does not include any international revenues whatsoever.

About Robotics Trends:

Robotics Trends, a division of EH Publishing, Inc., is the world's first integrated media firm serving the burgeoning personal, service and mobile robotics marketplace. They produce the "Robotics Trends" portal (http://www.roboticstrends.com), an online news, information and analysis portal focused on business and technology trends for people who build, buy, invest in, and seek to understand the personal, service, mobile and military robotics market.

About GeckoSystems International Corporation:

Since 1997, GeckoSystems has developed a comprehensive, coherent, and sufficient suite of hardware and software inventions to enable a new type of home appliance (a personal robot) the CareBot(TM), to be created for the mass consumer marketplace. The suite of primary inventions includes: GeckoNav(TM), GeckoChat(TM) and GeckoTrak(TM).

The primary market for this product is the family for use in eldercare, care for the chronically ill, and childcare. The primary distribution channel for this new home appliance is the thousands of independent personal computer retailers in the U.S. The manufacturing infrastructure for this new product category of mobile service robots is essentially the same as the personal computer industry. Several outside contract manufacturers have been identified and qualified their ability to produce up to 1,000 CareBots per month within four to six months.

The Company is market driven. At the time of founding, over twelve years ago, the Company did extensive primary market research to determine the demographic profile of the early adopters of the then proposed product line. Subsequent to, and based on that original market research, they have assembled numerous focus groups to evaluate the fit of the CareBot personal robot into the participant's lives and their expected usage. The Company has also frequently employed the Delphi market research methodology by contacting and interviewing senior executives, practitioners, and researchers knowledgeable in the area of elder care. Using this factual basis of internally performed primary and secondary market research, and third party research is the statistical substance for the Company's sales forecasts.

Not surprisingly the scientific statistical analyses applied revealed that elderly over sixty-five living alone in metropolitan areas with broadband Internet available and sufficient household incomes to support the increased costs were identified as those most likely to adopt initially. Due to the high cost of assisted living, nursing homes, etc. the payback for a CareBot(TM) is expected to be only six to eight months while keeping elderly care receivers independent, in their own long time homes, and living longer due to the comfort and safety of more frequent attention from their loved ones.

"We project the available market size in dollars for cost effective, utilitarian, multitasking eldercare personal robots in 2011 to be $74.0B, in 2012 to be $77B, in 2013 to be $80B, in 2014 to be $83.3B, and in 2015 to be $86.6B. With market penetrations of 0.03% in 2011, 0.06% in 2012, 0.22% in 2013, 0.53% in 2014, and 0.81% in 2015, we will anticipate CareBot 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," opined Spencer.

The foregoing forecasts do not include sales in non-metropolitan areas; elderly couples over 65 (only elderly living alone are in these forecasts); those chronically ill -- regardless of age -- or elderly living with their adult children.

The Company's "mobile robot solutions for safety, security and service(TM)" are appropriate not only for the consumer, but also professional healthcare, commercial security and defense markets. Professional healthcare require cost effective, timely errand running, portable telemedicine, etc. Homeland Security requires cost effective mobile robots to patrol and monitor public venues for weapons and WMD detection. Military users desire the elimination of the "man in the loop" to enable unmanned ground and air vehicles to not require constant human control and/or intervention.

The Company's business model is very much like that of an automobile manufacturer. Due to the final assembly, test, and shipping being done based on geographic and logistic realities; strategic business-to-business relationships can range from private labeling to joint manufacturing and distribution to licensing only.

Several dozen patent opportunities exist for the Company due to the many innovative and cost effective breakthroughs embodied not only in GeckoNav, GeckoChat, and GeckoTrak, but also in additional, secondary systems that include: GeckoOrient(TM), GeckoMotorController(TM), the GeckoTactileShroud(TM), the CompoundedSensorArray(TM), and the GeckoSPIO(TM).

The present senior management at GeckoSystems has over thirty-five years experience in consumer electronics sales and marketing and product development. Senior managers have been identified for the areas of manufacturing, marketing, sales, and finance.

While GeckoSystems has been in the Development Stage, the Company has accumulated losses to date in excess of six million dollars. In contrast, the Japanese government has spent one hundred million dollars in grants (to Sanyo, Toshiba, Hitachi, Fujitsu, NEC, etc.) over the same time period to develop personal robots for their eldercare crisis, yet no viable solutions have been developed.

GeckoSystems is the first mobile robot developer in the world to begin actual in-home eldercare evaluation trials.

Business-to-Business Discussion:

"For the past three months we have been using our suite of mobile robot solutions in our first business-to-consumer (B2C) product, the CareBot(TM), in our elder care robot trials. During this real world testing we have gained sufficient confidence to offer these proprietary solutions to those firms and/or individuals interested in manufacturing and distributing into the various business-to-business (B2B) markets such as professional healthcare, commercial security, public safety, and government. Demonstrably GeckoSystems has viable, cost effective solutions for not only software navigation, verbal interaction, and event scheduling; but also multiple, low cost sensor fusion solutions and differential drive locomotion management," remarked Spencer.

GeckoNav(TM) is the GeckoSavant(TM) developed by GeckoSystems that enables their mobile robots to express reliable automatic self-navigation and avoid unforeseen obstacles whether static and/or dynamic while ambulating. This is achieved using a low clock, low power x86 CPU. Sometimes this level of autonomy is referred to as "loose crowd capable" due to its fully autonomous (hands off) ability to automatically path find through a loose crowd of moving people.

Another GeckoSavant, GeckoChat(TM), uses voice recognition/synthesis and a forward chaining expert system to enable verbal interaction and/or command and control of the CareBot. GeckoScheduler(TM) is a date and time aware database manager that provides the CareBot with event timing for verbal reminders, errand running, patrolling, tracking, etc. Common sense management and coordination between all GeckoSavants is accomplished using the GeckoSuper(TM).

GeckoOrient(TM) fuses sensor data from three disparate orientation subsystems to achieve better absolute accuracy than any single orientation subsystem, without accumulative error, but at lower cost than a single high accuracy device.

GeckoSystems' CompoundedSensorArray(TM) displaces expensive and slow machine vision solutions with sufficient situation awareness of the environment to enable GeckoNav to avoid even unexpected obstacles while patrolling, following, or errand running.

The GeckoSPIO(TM) is their robot controller board that orchestrates, collects and disseminates hundreds of sensor data inputs per second. Additionally it enables management of the locomotion system in near real time using the GeckoMotorController(TM) which not only minimizes power consumption by careful, adaptive management of the acceleration and de-acceleration of the locomotion motors' speeds, but also enables differential drives to travel in a straight line when requested to do so.

Business-to-Consumer Benefits Discussion:

What Does a CareBot Do for the Care Giver?

The short answer is that it decreases the difficulty and stress for the caregiver that needs to watch over Grandma, Mom, or other family members most, if not much, of the time day in and day out due to concerns about their well being, safety, and security.

But, first let's look at some other labor saving, automatic home appliances most of us use routinely. For example, needing to do two or more necessary chores and/or activities at the same time, like laundering clothes and preparing supper.

The automatic washing machine needs no human intervention after the dirty clothes are placed in the washer, the laundry powder poured in, and the desired wash cycle set. Then, this labor saving appliance runs automatically until the washed clothes are ready to be placed in another labor saving home appliance, the automatic clothes dryer. While the clothes are being washed and/or dried, the caregiver prepares supper using several time saving home appliances like the microwave oven, "crock" pot, blender, and conventional stove, with possible convection oven capabilities.

After supper, the dirty pots, pans, and dishes are placed in the automatic dishwasher to be washed and dried while the family retires to the den to watch TV, and/or the kids to do homework. Later, perhaps after the kids have gone to bed, the caregiver may then have the time to fold, sort, and put up the now freshly laundered clothes.

So what does a CareBot do for the caregiver? It is a new type of labor saving, time management automatic home appliance.

For example, the care giver frequently feels time stress when they need to go shopping for 2 or 3 hours, and are uncomfortable when they have to be away for more than an hour or so. Time stress is much worse for the caregiver with a frail elderly parent that must be reminded to take medications at certain times of the day. How can the caregiver be away for 3-4 hours when Grandma must take her prescribed medication every 2 or 3 hours? If the caregiver is trapped in traffic for an hour or two beyond the 2 or 3 they expected to be gone, this "time stress" can be very difficult for the caregiver to moderate.

Not infrequently, the primary caregiver has a 24 hour, 7 days a week responsibility. After weeks and weeks of this sometimes tedious, if not onerous routine, how does the caregiver get a "day off?" To bring in an outsider is expensive (easily $75-125 per day for just 8 hours) and there is the concern that medication will be missed or the care receiver have an accident requiring immediate assistance by the caregiver, or someone they must designate. And the care receiver may be very resistant to a "stranger" coming in to her home and "running things."

So what is it worth for a care receiver to have an automatic system to help take care of Grandma? Just 3 or 4 days a month "off" on a daylong shopping trip, a visit with friends, or just take in a movie would cost $225-500 per month. And that scenario assumes that Grandma is willing to be taken care of by a "stranger" during those needed and appropriate days off.

So perhaps, an automatic caregiver, a CareBot, might be pretty handy, and potentially very cost effective from the primary caregiver's perspective.

What Does a CareBot Do for the Care Receiver?

It's a new kind of companion that always stays close to them enabling family and friends to care for them from afar. It tells them jokes, retells family anecdotes, reminds them to take medication, reminds them that family is coming over soon (or not at all), recites Bible verses, plays favorite songs and/or other music. It alerts them when unexpected visitors or intruders are present. It notifies designated caregivers when a potentially harmful event has occurred, such as a fall, fire in the home, or simply been not found by the CareBot for too long. It responds to calls for help and notifies those that the caregiver determined should be immediately notified when any predetermined adverse event occurs.

The family can customize the personality of the CareBot. The voice's cadence can be fast or slow. The intonation can be breathy, or abrupt. The voice's volume can range from very loud to very soft. The response phrases from the CareBot for recognized words and phrases can be colloquial and/or unique to the family's own heritage. The personality can range from brassy to timid depending on how the care giver, and others appropriate, chooses it to be.

Generally, the care receiver is pleased at the prospect of family being able to drop in for a "virtual visit" using the onboard webcam and video monitor for at home "video conferencing." The care receiver may feel much more needed and appreciated when their far flung family and friends can "look in" on them anywhere in the world where they can get broadband internet access and simply chat for a bit.

Why is Grandma really interested in a CareBot? She wants to stay in her home, or her family's home, as long as she possibly can. What's that worth? Priceless. Or, an average nursing home is $5,000 per month for an environment that is too often the beginning of a spiral downward in the care receiver's health. That's probably $2-3K more per month for them to be placed where they really don't want to be. Financial payback on a CareBot? Less than a year- Emotional payback for the family to have this new automatic care giver? Nearly instantaneous-

GeckoSystems' Representative Reports on Japanese Interest in Mobile Robot Solutions

CONYERS, GA -- (Marketwire)
04/06/10
GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) (http://www.geckosystems.com/) announced today that their Japanese representative, Hajime Yasumatsu, reported recently regarding his initiatives for GeckoSystems while in Japan in late March regarding various Japanese firms' level of interest in assisting and/or partnering with GeckoSystems to use their "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security, and Service"™ for manufacturing, distribution and sales in Japan.

"In my meeting with JETRO in late February, I essentially explained GeckoSystems' business model, their many proprietary, beneficial and cost effective mobile robot solutions, and their criteria for selecting a Japanese business partner. While I was pleased with their time and attention, I am now waiting for some sort of feedback from JETRO Japan through their San Francisco office. While I was in Japan, JETRO confirmed that I will need to hear from JETRO-San Francisco.

"Besides our ongoing discussions with JETRO, I visited Tmsuk Company, Ltd. in Fukuoka, Japan. I asked them how receptive they are to some sort of business cooperation with GeckoSystems in the future. They are very focused on cost effective health care delivery using mobile robots and very busy building new robots

"We project the available market size in dollars for cost effective, utilitarian, multitasking eldercare personal robots in 2011 to be $74.0B, in 2012 to be $77B, in 2013 to be $80B, in 2014 to be $83.3B, and in 2015 to be $86.6B.

We expect these sales despite -- and perhaps because of -- the present recession due to pent up demand for significant cost reduction in eldercare expenses," opined Spencer.

The foregoing forecasts do not include sales in non-metropolitan areas; elderly couples over 65 (only elderly living alone are in these forecasts); those chronically ill -- regardless of age -- or elderly living with their adult children

GeckoSystems' Representative Reports on Japanese Interest in Mobile Robot Solutions

CONYERS, GA -- (Marketwire)
04/06/10
GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) (http://www.geckosystems.com/) announced today that their Japanese representative, Hajime Yasumatsu, reported recently regarding his initiatives for GeckoSystems while in Japan in late March regarding various Japanese firms' level of interest in assisting and/or partnering with GeckoSystems to use their "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security, and Service"™ for manufacturing, distribution and sales in Japan.

"In my meeting with JETRO in late February, I essentially explained GeckoSystems' business model, their many proprietary, beneficial and cost effective mobile robot solutions, and their criteria for selecting a Japanese business partner. While I was pleased with their time and attention, I am now waiting for some sort of feedback from JETRO Japan through their San Francisco office. While I was in Japan, JETRO confirmed that I will need to hear from JETRO-San Francisco.

"Besides our ongoing discussions with JETRO, I visited Tmsuk Company, Ltd. in Fukuoka, Japan. I asked them how receptive they are to some sort of business cooperation with GeckoSystems in the future. They are very focused on cost effective health care delivery using mobile robots and very busy building new robots.

"In addition to the discussions with JETRO and Tmsuk, I visited another Japanese company that is very focused on preventive medical care using mobile robot and their vital sign sensor systems. They are working closely with Tokyo University for R&D and the Marubeni Group for marketing. They seem to be very impressed. I am thinking this may be a good start of reciprocal business relations between GeckoSystems and this new group," commented Hajime Yasumatsu, Chairman, Yasu, Inc., a Missouri Corporation.

Martin Spencer, President/CEO of GeckoSystems stated: "As all of us here at GeckoSystems are excited about this development, due to the growing substance of these new discussions, I feel it is in the best interest of all parties to not reveal the present status of this continuing, if not heightened, interest in GeckoSystems by not only the Japanese government, JETRO, and one of their most advanced mobile robot companies, Tmsuk Co., Ltd., but also this new Japanese firm expressing interest. I believe their interest in us is due to not only our flagship product, the automatic self navigation software, GeckoNav™, but also the reality that we have a complete multitasking personal robot, the CareBot™, with verbal interaction capabilities, GeckoChat™, and the ability to routinely follow a designated family member with GeckoTrak™."

"The Japanese have their own eldercare crisis because of the size of their WWII widow population. Due to their understanding of the high costs of sufficient and appropriate eldercare, the Japanese government has spent one hundred million dollars ($100,000,000) in grants (to Sanyo, Toshiba, Hitachi, Fujitsu, NEC, etc.) over the last eight to ten years to develop personal robots for their own eldercare crisis, yet no viable solutions have been developed by them to date.

"During our many years of developing the CareBot we have focused on software. The majority of robotics companies in Japan focus on the hardware side of mobile service robot development. Given this natural tendency communication may be difficult but the relationship would benefit both sides. The Japanese attention to detail in hardware development could help to advance our hardware platform and reduce the cost further.

"Our software would place a Japanese robotics company ahead of all its competitors. We continue to expect technology-licensing revenues to precede revenues from product manufacturing and sales. The cost saving benefits of GeckoSystems' suite of mobile robot technologies will generate multiple revenue streams for GeckoSystems in the form of licensing, royalties, training, and sales of various hardware systems and subsystems.

"I expect the synergies in our cooperation to result in distribution into the Japanese market and enable significant cost reductions in the systems and subsystems we import from Japan. As one would expect, licensing revenues and a more competitive cost structure will increase shareholder value and ROI for our stockholders," concluded Spencer.

About GeckoSystems Intl. Corp.:

Since 1997, GeckoSystems has developed a comprehensive, coherent, and sufficient suite of hardware and software inventions to enable a new type of home appliance (a personal robot) the CareBot, to be created for the mass consumer marketplace. The suite of primary inventions includes: GeckoNav, GeckoChat and GeckoTrak.

The primary market for this product is the family for use in eldercare, care for the chronically ill, and childcare. The primary distribution channel for this new home appliance is the thousands of independent personal computer retailers in the U.S. The manufacturing infrastructure for this new product category of mobile service robots is essentially the same as the personal computer industry. Several outside contract manufacturers have been identified and qualified their ability to produce up to 1,000 CareBots per month within four to six months.

The Company is market driven. At the time of founding, nearly 12 years ago, the Company did extensive primary market research to determine the demographic profile of the early adopters of the then proposed product line. Subsequent to, and based on that original market research, they have assembled numerous focus groups to evaluate the fit of the CareBot personal robot into the participant's lives and their expected usage. The Company has also frequently employed the Delphi market research methodology by contacting senior executives, practitioners, and researchers knowledgeable in the area of elder care. Using this factual basis of internally performed primary and secondary market research, and third party research is the factual basis for the Company's sales forecasts.

"We project the available market size in dollars for cost effective, utilitarian, multitasking eldercare personal robots in 2011 to be $74.0B, in 2012 to be $77B, in 2013 to be $80B, in 2014 to be $83.3B, and in 2015 to be $86.6B. With market penetrations of 0.03% in 2011, 0.06% in 2012, 0.22% in 2013, 0.53% in 2014, and 0.81% in 2015, we will anticipate CareBot 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," opined Spencer.

The Company's "mobile robot solutions for safety, security and service™" are appropriate not only for the consumer, but also professional healthcare, commercial security and defense markets. Professional healthcare require cost effective, timely errand running, portable telemedicine, etc. Homeland Security requires cost effective mobile robots to patrol and monitor public venues for weapons and WMD detection. Military users desire the elimination of the "man in the loop" to enable unmanned ground and air vehicles to not require constant human control and/or intervention.

The Company's business model is very much like that of an automobile manufacturer. Due to the final assembly, test, and shipping being done based on geographic and logistic realities; strategic business-to-business relationships can range from private labeling to joint manufacturing and distribution to licensing only.

Several dozen patent opportunities exist for the Company due to the many innovative and cost effective breakthroughs embodied not only in GeckoNav, GeckoChat, and GeckoTrak, but also in additional, secondary systems that include: GeckoOrient™, GeckoMotorController™, the GeckoTactileShroud™, the CompoundedSensorArray™, and the GeckoSPIO™.

The present senior management at GeckoSystems has over thirty-five years experience in consumer electronics sales and marketing and product development. Senior managers have been identified for the areas of manufacturing, marketing, sales, and finance.

By the end of this year, the Company plans to complete productization of its CareBot offering with the introduction of its fourth generation personal robot, the CareBot 4.0 MSR.

What Does a CareBot Do for the Care Giver?

The short answer is that it decreases the difficulty and stress for the caregiver that needs to watch over Grandma, Mom, or other family members most, if not much, of the time day in and day out due to concerns about their well being, safety, and security.

But, first let's look at some other labor saving, automatic home appliances most of us use routinely. For example, needing to do two or more necessary chores and/or activities at the same time, like laundering clothes and preparing supper.

The automatic washing machine needs no human intervention after the dirty clothes are placed in the washer, the laundry powder poured in, and the desired wash cycle set. Then, this labor saving appliance runs automatically until the washed clothes are ready to be placed in another labor saving home appliance, the automatic clothes dryer. While the clothes are being washed and/or dried, the caregiver prepares supper using several time saving home appliances like the microwave oven, "crock" pot, blender, and conventional stove, with possible convection oven capabilities.

After supper, the dirty pots, pans, and dishes are placed in the automatic dishwasher to be washed and dried while the family retires to the den to watch TV, and/or the kids to do homework. Later, perhaps after the kids have gone to bed, the caregiver may then have the time to fold, sort, and put up the now freshly laundered clothes.

So what does a CareBot do for the caregiver? It is a new type of labor saving, time management automatic home appliance.

For example, the caregiver frequently feels time stress when they need to go shopping for 2 or 3 hours, and are uncomfortable when they have to be away for more than an hour or so. Time stress is much worse for the caregiver with a frail elderly parent that must be reminded to take medications at certain times of the day. How can the caregiver be away for 3-4 hours when Grandma must take her prescribed medication every 2 or 3 hours? If the caregiver is trapped in traffic for an hour or two beyond the 2 or 3 they expected to be gone, this "time stress" can be very difficult for the caregiver to moderate.

Not infrequently, the primary caregiver has a 24 hour, 7 days a week responsibility. After weeks and weeks of this sometimes tedious, if not onerous routine, how does the caregiver get a "day off?" To bring in an outsider is expensive (easily $75-125 per day for just 8 hours) and there is the concern that medication will be missed or the care receiver have an accident requiring immediate assistance by the caregiver, or someone they must designate. And the care receiver may be very resistant to a stranger coming in to her home and "running things."

So what is it worth for a care receiver to have an automatic system to help take care of Grandma? Just 3 or 4 days a month "off" on a daylong shopping trip, a visit with friends, or just take in a movie would cost $225-500 per month. And that scenario assumes that Grandma is willing to be taken care of by a stranger during those needed and appropriate days off.

So perhaps an automatic caregiver, a CareBot, might be pretty handy and potentially very cost effective from the primary caregiver's perspective.

What Does a CareBot Do for the Care Receiver?

It's a new kind of companion that always stays close to them enabling family and friends to care for them from afar. It tells them jokes, retells family anecdotes, reminds them to take medication, reminds them that family is coming over soon (or not at all), recites Bible verses, plays favorite songs and/or other music. It alerts them when unexpected visitors, or intruders are present. It notifies designated caregivers when a potentially harmful event has occurred, such as a fall, fire in the home, or simply been not found by the CareBot for too long. It responds to calls for help and notifies those that the caregiver determined should be immediately notified when any predetermined adverse event occurs.

The family can customize the personality of the CareBot. The voice's cadence can be fast or slow. The intonation can be breathy, or abrupt. The voice's volume can range from very loud to very soft. The response phrases from the CareBot for recognized words and phrases can be colloquial and/or unique to the family's own heritage. The personality can range from brassy to timid depending on how the caregiver, and others appropriate, chooses it to be.

Generally, the care receiver is pleased at the prospect of family being able to drop in for a "virtual visit" using the onboard webcam and video monitor for at home "video conferencing." The care receiver may feel much more needed and appreciated when their far flung family and friends can "look in" on them any where in the world where they can get broadband internet access and simply chat for a bit.

Why is Grandma really interested in a CareBot? She wants to stay in her home, or her family's home, as long as she possibly can. What's that worth? Priceless. Or, an average nursing home is $5,000 per month for an environment that is too often the beginning of a spiral downward in the care receiver's health. That's probably $2-3K more per month for them to be placed where they really don't want to be. Financial payback on a CareBot? Less than a year- Emotional payback for the family to have this new automatic care giver? Nearly instantaneous-

GCKO NEWS: GeckoSystems in Negotiations With Major Intl. Retailer to Sell Personal Robots

CONYERS, GA -- (Marketwire)
04/09/10
GeckoSystems Intl. Corp. (PINKSHEETS: GCKO) (http://www.geckosystems.com/) -- reported today that a major international consumer electronics retailer has expressed heightened interest in purchasing, distributing and selling GeckoSystems' first product, the CareBot™. GeckoSystems is a dynamic leader in the emerging mobile robotics industry revolutionizing their development and usage with "Mobile Robot Solutions for Safety, Security and Service™."

Martin Spencer, President/CEO of GeckoSystems stated, "As all of us here at GeckoSystems are excited about this development, due to the nature of the ongoing negotiations I feel it is in the best interest of all parties involved to withhold the name of this international firm at this time. The upcoming meetings, demonstrations, and potential outcome(s) of it is something that has been in the works since our founding and is now coming to what looks to be an extraordinarily profitable culmination. I believe their interest in us is due to the reality that we have a new consumer product, a complete multitasking personal robot, the CareBot™. We are now in the world's first in home elder care robot trials."

This retailer has operations in the US, Canada, and Mexico. They are a multinational retailer of technology and entertainment products and services. Their family of companies collectively generates more than $40 billion in annual revenue. Over 100,000 employees apply their talents to help bring the benefits of their product and service offerings to retail customers.

The scope of the US consumer market for truly utilitarian, cost effective personal robots is enormous. In the January 2007 issue of "Scientific American," Bill Gates, co-founder and chairman of Microsoft, the world's largest software company, authored "A Robot in Every Home" with discussions as to why he expects that reality sooner than later. There are 110+ million homes in the US.

"We project the available market size in dollars for cost effective, utilitarian, multitasking eldercare personal robots in 2011 to be $74.0B, in 2012 to be $77B, in 2013 to be $80B, in 2014 to be $83.3B, and in 2015 to be $86.6B. With market penetrations of 0.03% in 2011, 0.06% in 2012, 0.22% in 2013, 0.53% in 2014, and 0.81% in 2015, we will anticipate CareBot 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. This augurs well for our stockholders," opined Spencer.
