Botacon - Robots for a Better Future!
Saturday, December 11, 2010 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM (EST)
A new day is dawning for robotics. The tools of manufacturing have been democratized and robots have become modular and configurable. It is easier than ever to make your own robots.
This conference will shine a spotlight on this fresh approach to robotics and the roboticists building a better tomorrow through automation. The day will be have talks, demonstrations, explanations, and robotic wisdom. The final details are still being worked out but the basic idea is:
- A keynote speaker in the morning
- A bunch of small talks and discussions (anywhere from 5-15 minutes)
- About 2 hours for lunch
- A workshop project
- Some more talks and discussions
- Time for people to get dinner
- A bar drinkup
Please only get student tickets if you are a student. They are limited and we want to make sure only studentst that need them, get them.
Doors open at 10am and the program starts at 11am. We'll be out of the space by 6:30 and you're encouraged to get dinner in the neighborhood and join us for a drinkup crawl in Brooklyn afterwards.
I hope you can join us, it just wouldn't be the future of robotics without you!
