Meet Rick Jetson

Robot Rick

Rick Taylor finally got his wish.

During his remarks opening the first day of Konica Minolta’s national Dealer Conference, Rick got to play out a boyhood dream: having a robot deliver him a note and a Snickers. Just like Rosie the Robot in his favorite cartoon, “The Jetsons,” the robot Savioke was ready to deliver whatever its “master” needed.

In keeping with the conference’s theme, “The Art of Disruption,” Rick also mentioned Knightscope, a company that addresses data and fiscal security and uses … robots.

For those keeping score, that’s one Rick and two robots.


Day 1 keynote speaker Robert Herjavec, entrepreneur and lead shark on ABC’s Emmy-winning “Shark Tank,” gave the crowd some food for thought.

“Growth is a process of innovation” and “The art of selling yourself can be part of the disruption.”

Exactly why #KMDisrupts.
