End-to-end robotics development platform
A visual programming tool, Microsoft Visual Programming Language, for creating and debugging robot applications. Developer can interact with robots through web-based or windows-based interfaces.

3-D Simulation
Realistic simulation is provided by PhysX engine from AGEIA. Software emulation or hardware acceleration is possible.

Lightweight services-oriented runtime
Developer can easily access robot's sensors and actuators, provided by .NET-based concurrency library implementation. Communication is message-based allowing communication between modules.

Scalable, extensible platform
Whole application is robot-multi-platform. Various languages are allowed - Microsoft Visual Studio Express languages (Visual C#® and Visual Basic® .NET), JScript® and Microsoft IronPython 1.0 Beta 1, and third-party languages that conform to its services-based architecture.
