While Amazon was planning to deliver goods via drones, Google’s Andy Rubin was already busy working on a project which is more droid like. Google “moonshot” an ambitious “10-year vision” for building state of the art robot hardware and software plans to change the whole robotics space in the course of time. And if we trust Google, which uses open source software in large scale, these robots may be well powered by Linux.
