Let's Make Robots!

Campus Party Berlin 2012 LMR division

This is fantastic, and NOT a (bad) joke, and it's not spam - free as in free beer. It is an amazing chance brought to you because you are LMR: (Ask Dutchbot, rik, fritsl, Anton, Tinhead.. any of the guys who went last time if it was not the coolest thing EVER (and this time it is 4 times as big))

If you are an LMR member, and in Europe on 21st -> 26th of August 2012, this can be all free for you - yep, paid for, just sign up, tell us what you are planning to bring and have fun:

  • Campus Party will set up a tent (possibly indoor) for you. (Bring sleeping bag, details to come)
  • LMR is working together with Campus Party in order to arrange special LMR Nights at the event!
  • Meet friends, bring robots, heck bring soldering iron, make a robot on the spot!
  • Hear famous people and speakers
  • See more tech and future stuff than you have ever seen before

Stay tuned at http://www.campus-party.eu/2012/index.html and do not hesitate to contact our friend, Angel (angel.hernandez@campus-party.org or @mifulapirus) the Robotics Advisor at Campus Party if you have any questions about the event.

It'll be a memory for life, if it's just half as cool as last time!!

This is what we have arranged, this is how you sign up:

1) Officially sign up to this contest: http://www.campus-party.eu/2012/invitations-program.html (You just have to do the tweet, that makes you participate in the official contest, you do not need to sign up on the page. For geo-setup of Twitter, this might help you, read carefully it's all there ;)  http://support.twitter.com/articles/122236#) - Here is Frits's tweet, as an example:

2) Just after entering the contest, submit this form ;)

We will get back to you ;)


Q's & A's;

  • Should you be European citizen to participate? Please read carefully what is written above - it is not a random wording. (Your passport will not be checked ;) 
  • What if you already talked to us, wrote Fritsl a mail about this? Then you should still sign up as written above!

Click on the sign below for more info on the event itself :) The deal is; The people arranging that need many nerds, and we are the largest bunch, so we help each other out this way - they make an LMR event out of it ;)

Because I live in Berlin, I can provide the most important tools. Not everyone needs to bring its complete set of tools.

That's great RobotFreak. Lets talk about that later when I need to plan what to pack ;-)

I would like to save some weight on tools so I can bring more toys ;-)

Any news? I got the email with the reminder for applying the free tickets.

Anyway, I just want to know how it's gong from now. I did not get an email wth more details yet. I know I am impatient but like to start planning everything (workshop, material, tools)


Hi all, 

I wanted to clear up some information about the bus transportation that I think may not have been passed on correctly in the first place (though I see the text above has been changed to relfect this). 

While we are offering all LMR community members a free ticket, we cannot guarantee bus transportation as we are not the ones organizing the buses. TheBigThink is a competition, and in order to "win a ride" your Twitter-submitted idea must be selected by one of our partner universities (see map of schools here: http://ximosoft.com/campusparty/) as they are organizing the bus travel. So keep your ideas coming! We have four more days in the competition, and you may submit as many as you like. See here for the full instructions: http://www.campus-party.eu/2012/invitations-program.html

We will do everything in our power to see if we can get you a ride on the buses closest to you, but we cannot be certain that there will be room on the university-run buses, so please keep this in mind as you plan your trip! 

Hope to see you all in Berlin this August!

Since I'm a university student and my university is participating I can be safer that I can get a ride, right?

Last time we where getting free plane tickets to the event. 100%, just had to get to an airport.

This time I was initially told (apparently by some mistake somewhere) that we would be driven in free busses, local pick up, perhaps only in a town nearby.

I am very sorry for those who trusted me on this, and I hope you understand that this is the background; Last time I was suspecious - it sounded too good to be true, but it was better, much better than expected. And everyone proved trustworthy, 100%.

I am quite sure that the event itself will be amazing this time, I am sorry for those who might feel that I have passed on something which turned out to not be true, if it turns out that there is no free bus for you. And I am looking forward to any official information, and I will still trust what we hear.

I think this is based on unfortunate misunderstandings, I hope all and everybody are cool and everything will sort itself out.

hey fritsl, i hope you can help me. me and 4 others signed up and did the tweet and everyting, but none of us got any confirmation.

and on this link, http://ximosoft.com/campusparty/ if you look at kolding, there is only one tweet, from helene simonsen, when there should be 4 :/

i really hope i have done things right/ have time to correct, because i really wanna go, so help me if you can :)

I am sorry, but I have no more information than you guys - In fact I try hard to push all info out, to avoid me being a cantral figure in this, because I am only the guy who once came up with the idea to LMR - not the guy who has anything to do with this event, sorry.

Angel (angel.hernandez@campus-party.org or @mifulapirus) Is the guy I would contact.

I have written Angel recently and asked if we could get some dialouge/confirmation, and he responded right away, a couple of others (cannot remember their names, sorry) should take care of returning to all of us ASAP. That is all I know. But if we are more people asking Angel for answers, he might feel the preasure ;) (Hi Angel, I am pushing you in public, we need to get some straight answers and security/confirmation, people have good reasons to be confused, let us get some short, precise information out .. now ;) - Thanks! )

Thanks fritsl. Just mailed to Angel about twetter issues on several LMR members (including me).

Hope Angel inform to CP (and bring his TupperBot to Berlin xD)



If your tweets aren't showing up on the map and you haven't gotten a confirmation via twitter that it has been recieved it's a geolocation error. 

There are two things you can do: try sending your tweet from a mobile device with the geolocation option on (it's more accurate than the online option) OR email me at deniz [a] campus-party.org with your twitter profile and where you're tweeting from and I'll send it on to have them added manually to the map!
