The Adept Quattro is the brain child of CNRS researchers and Fatronik, a foundation from Spain. The robot's incredible speed is achieved with software controls and parallel link technology. After a number of years spent perfecting this robot, the creators approached Adept about production. The first Adept Quattro robots hit the market in early 2007. Their cost ranges from $30,000-50,000 euros.
