Telepresence Magabots - Any volunteers?
October 1, 2011
UPDATE 04 Dec 2011:
We're here at this amazing robotics exhibit in Lisbon, Portugal and we have several available magabots.
If you want to have a look at the different robots (quad and octocopters, tracked robots, robotic guides, etc), just visit us or meet other LMRers face-to-face (or robot-to-robot ;) ), add 'magabot.cc' to your skype contacts list and take the control of one of them :D
UPDATE 08 Nov 2011:
3 days. 24 hours a day. 800 attendees. Talks. Workshops. Lots of food and beverages. 48 hour programming/hacking competition. Quiz Show. Presentation Karaoke. Security Competition. Lots of gaming consoles. LEGO. More food. More beverages. More coding. Sleeping areas. More fun. An unforgettable experience.
If you feel like you want to have a look arround, meet other LMR's face-to-face or just play, add 'artica.cc' on skype and we'll give you the control of one of the bots :D
I'll announce here once they're ready :)
