CoroWare Announces Availability and Pricing of CoroWare ClassPack for Microsoft Robotics Studio

ClassPack Complements CoroBot for Robotics Courses and Research

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwire - July 1, 2008) - CoroWare Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of CoroWare, Inc. (OTCBB: CROE), announced pricing and availability of CoroWare ClassPack for Microsoft Robotics Studio (CoroWare ClassPack), a simulation software package that complements its CoroBot mobile robot product line.

Combined with CoroWare's CoroBot, ClassPack is an affordable and effective robotics solution for teaching and research. By using the CoroWare ClassPack services, students can write robotics applications that will run both in simulation and on a real CoroBot. ClassPack features a classroom environment which allows the robot to encounter common objects found in an office or classroom. An easy-to-use control panel interface allows for remote control of the CoroBot.

"Simulation is the perfect tool for educators and researchers since they can realistically model any environment without the pains and costs involved with creating that environment," said Sara Morgan, CoroWare Robotic Software Engineer, and author of "Programming Microsoft Robotics Studio." "Students and researchers can experiment with a lower-cost version of CoroBot in the simulation environment, and then run their application on a real CoroBot in the classroom or lab."

CoroWare plans to make CoroWare ClassPack generally available at the end of June 2008 with two licensing options. An unlimited license will allow ClassPack to be installed and run on a single computer with no expiration date for a suggested retail price of $299 USD. A limited license will allow ClassPack to be installed on a single computer for the duration of a class term for a suggested retail price of $99 USD. Volume discounts for CoroWare ClassPack pricing will be available upon request for educational institutions.

"We are excited to see CoroWare continue to build upon its expertise in robotics simulation and its line of products," said Dan Kara, industry analyst and president of Robotics Trends. "We believe the introduction of new products to the market like CoroWare ClassPack will further drive the adoption of robotics at universities and colleges worldwide."
