PCS Edventures Announces Robotic Microcontroller Success

BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - August 25, 2009) - PCS Edventures!.com (OTCBB: PCSV) today announced that The Brain, its proprietary robotic micro-controller, has been successfully deployed in hundreds of sites throughout the United States and worldwide including Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, and Germany. Following a soft launch this spring, combined sales from distribution partners and in-house sales are now approaching 2,000 units. Distribution partners have found The Brain and the PCS progressive programming environment, The Cortex, to fill a strong need in the educational robotics marketplace. The worldwide robotics industry is a $24.9 Billion marketplace, with the service and personal robotics market making up nearly 70% of that number.

The Brain was designed to provide flexibility through a number of built-in hooks for attaching the controller securely to a variety of systems including fischertechnik®, LEGO®, K'NEX®, and industry standard hobbyist materials such as those seen in radio control devices. The goal of The Brain design team was to provide end users with a comprehensive and flexible system that works with industry standard materials in a variety of environments including the K-12 and University classroom as well as the hobbyist workshop. This approach sets The Brain and The Cortex apart from all other competitors in the field of educational robotics.

David Chase, one of the lead developers on The Brain design team, said, "We've been working with robotics in education for over two decades, and regardless of the system we were working with, there was always something lacking, and our students were always wanting to integrate their robots with other materials. We heard this same feedback from so many customers that it became evident there was significant market need for it. The Brain and The Cortex were designed to encourage interoperability and creativity with no limits."

Tony Maher, President and CEO, said, "Looking forward we see robotics in education to be a significant driver in our educational sales strategies. There is no doubt that the worldwide acceptance of robotics in the classroom is now passing from the early adopter stage to something more significant, and our 20 years of experience in this area positions us nicely to take advantage of this expanding market. Our initial launch numbers have been good and we see order frequency and size increasing rapidly."
