Interested in expanding the open source robotics community or exploring new applications for personal robots?

"Willow Garage invites proposals from research organizations interested in using the PR2 to accelerate robotics research, drive open source robotics development, and contribute to the open source robotics community. Approximately ten PR2s will be made available to research organizations that will make rigorous and creative use of the robot in existing or planned research projects."

Check it out at http://www.willowgarage.com/pages/pr2-beta-program/cfp. Intent to respond is due February 1, 2010.
