Majority of Willow Garage Employees Move to Suitable Technologies, PR2 Still Supported

Suitable Technologies, the Willow Garage spinout that created the Beamremote presence system, announced today that it has 'retained a majority of employees from Willow Garage.'

A press release sent out this morning and also posted on Willow Garage's blogsays Suitable will 'use the combined resources to further product development, sales, and customer support.'

Back in February, Willow stated that it had 'decided to enter the world of commercial opportunities with an eye to becoming a self-sustaining company,' but with today's announcement, we don't know where things stand in terms of future PR2 improvements.
