Here’s the story behind our nickname. We wanted something that reflected our home on Beaver Island and the Irish heritage of the island (which is too long a story for here). We played around with BICS Robots, then Beaver Island Robots and then initials. That lead to BI Robots. Thinking about Iscaac Asimov’s short stories under name I, Robot (and with a nod to Roomba maker iRobot), we finally came up with bIrobot.
