Let's Make Robots!

Campus Party London 2013


Well, it's a couple of days now that the Campus Party closed it's doors and I am back home already. 

Let's see what happened... first of all I will write an intependent blog for the aftermath but now only a little. The most important for me was to meet some of you guys again, Frits, Robotfreak, Sebas, Isotope, XicoMBD and for the first time 6677 (now I finally know his name). Please see the blog HERE for the detailed report.


Campus Party is closed now and we are all back home. Take a breath and wait for the final reports here :-)


Please also see the other blog where we post some stuff from the Campus Party in London: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/37331


We are in and sharing the table with the guys from roboternetz.de 


Just saw the blog post on the CP Blog website: http://blog.campus-party.eu/post/58069132526/make-way-to-make-robots

Letsmakerobots attended the Campus Party in Berlin in 2012. For the first time some people from Letsmakerobots met in real live and had 5 awesome days together.

What is Campus Party. Quote from the Campus Party Homepage: "Campus Party is an annual week long, 24-hours-a-day technology festival where thousands of “Campuseros” (hackers, developers, gamers and technophiles) equipped with laptops camp on-site and immerse themselves in a truly unique environment."

Well, that sentence can not even scratch the real feeling there. So lets the videos and photos speak for itself:

Just think positive. The first week in September should be fine with the school.

I'm pretty sure I'm coming. I have everything put togeather, air tickets, CP entrance and tent etc., except UK visa, which is in progress. BTW guys who is staying in tents, let me know if anyone wants to share tent with me, so LMR people stay together. Although it hardly worked last time in Berlin. Had to spend two hours going back and forth to make the reservation made on website actually work :)

Great, then we will see us again. I am staying in the tent as well but already got my son with me. I am sure one of the other guys will share. Partyyyyyyyy :-)))

I have bought my ticket so if everything goes well with the free travel I will also be there again :D

See you guys in London!

I am in contact with a team from the CP and will try to confirm the travel schedule.

Got a mail today from O2/CP organisation. Free travel registration to CP London ends today. So hurry up if you haven't book your travel, yet.

Ok guys, it's just one month left to meet you in London.

Lets start some organisation now to make sure we rock the Campus Party. What tools we should bring, what to prepare, are we getting a 3D printer? Soldering station, electronics and stuff?

Tell me/us what you are going to prepare/bring to London. It would be useless when we end up with 5 soldering stations and no hotglue gun...right?

@All others: There are still free tickets to claim...come and get them.

I will bring FrankenBoB and Red BoB to Campus Party. Some basic tools like screw drivers, cutter and parts for building robots (servos, motors, sensors, controllers, LEDs,...). Because travelling by plane I can not bring too much things. I will stay in London from 1. until 8. of september. I will stay in a hotel near the O2 Dome.

I'm arriving on Setember the 3rd's early morning and staying till the end of event. I'm not 100% sure what I will bring.

I think some basic stuff and I will print 2 or 3 sets of BoB parts just in case :)

Cool, we are waiting for you. Just find the coolest table in the area :-)
