We’ve gotten a great response to our call for robot teams for our newly formed Robot Hacks project. More than 52 teams have already registered and the G+ Community page is filling up with posts about designs and plans.
The spectrum of ideas is incredible. Bea Res writes: “I am designing and printing an Arduino-based robot that is controlled by light and has a safety purpose for the house.” James Jarrard’s team is interested in desktop interaction: “Something that can move objects and be quite a useful and fun tool in collaboration work spaces.” Ross Bochnek’s team is interested in camera robots for motion control.
What’s so special about Maker Sessions? As Geoffrey Stoel says, “What I like about these hacks is the master makers showing their view on the topic. And then the ability to play/experiment based on what you saw with the tools from the kit.”
Tune in Sunday Nov. 3 to see how our master makers will influence your ideas and help you shape your projects. The program kicks off 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.
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.
