We’re excited to announce Robot Hacks, the latest in our Maker Sessions series. This new program launches with two great components: we’ll be hosting discussions with leaders in the field of robotics and robot design, while concurrently enlisting and equipping community members to build and share robotics projects of their own — those interested in participating can apply to create a team and receive our package of robotics components, parts and materials.
The program kicks off Sunday November 3rd at 1pm ET with a live event and Google hangout from Olin College in Needham, Mass., where we’ll converse with Intel Futurist and 21st Century Robot author Brian David Johnson, illustrator Sandy Winkelman, designer/fabricator Wayne Losey, and Olin College Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Design Dave Barrett.
Joining us remotely will be robotics engineer and founder of Artisans Asylum Gui Cavalcanti, USC PhD research fellow Ross Mead, and more. Make sure to join our Robot Hacks Community to watch the program on G+, and contribute any questions, comments, ideas, or more, anytime you please. There are also limited tickets available for those who’d like to attend the event live.
Robot Hacks then continues with additional sessions on November 6th with Michael Overstreet, 13th with Gael Langevin and Chuck Fletcher, and 20th, where we’ll check in with our participating teams and see their work.
We’re thrilled about this — who doesn’t love making robots? — and can’t wait to put some servos to work with you.
