Summer Robots

Robots at the science museum

So schools out! Will we see any robots on our holidays oh yes.

We visited the robot exhibition at the science museum in London – bit of a journey but oh so worth it.

The robot exhibit had been running since 8 th Feb and goes on till 3rd sept where it moves on to Manchester LINK HERE

500 years ago the word robot didn’t exist then came the dawn of mechanical human forms that were found in churches theatres etc – through to the amazing robots and cutting edge technology that we see today

Robots at the science museum reveals the 500 year quest to make mechanisms of the body and mechanisms of the mind

Where are we going next in this robot quest?

Robots at the science museum is a must for any robot fan

 Robots that are making our life easier this summer


GRILLBOT – yep its BBQ season once again but did you clean the grill from last year err nope

The robot that can clean this is the GRILLBOT

The grillbot does all the grill cleaning for us and no more scrubbing

Robot News – Uk Robotics week and Transformers 5

Robot News

The second annual UK Robotics Week will take place 24th-30th June and will see a huge range of events, showcases and challenges taking place across the UK. During the same week the new transformers movie is being released. We are very excited!

What’s going on in UK Robotics week 2017

UK Robotics Week have been running a number of challenges for both adults and children to design robots with specific themes.
Children aged 4-18 years old have been taking part in a competition to design a virtual robot bug and teach it to move. The closing date for applications was back in April, but keep an eye out for next years’ challenges!

For adults there are exciting themed challenges with prizes up to £10,000. Though most of them are no longer accepting submissions, there is one that will be taking place during UK Robotics week about extreme environments which is an international competition to build robust emergency response systems.

There are a vast number of events taking place across the UK over the next few months. The activities are extraordinarily diverse ranging from machine morality and ethics, to a LEGO WeDo course for those looking for an easy but effective way of teaching robotics in KS2 Computing and a panel discussion about role models and women in tech. Like we said, there’s a lot going on so make sure you check it out here.

Hamlyn Symposium 25th – 28th June 2017
This four day conference includes workshops on clinical and technical topics and speakers covering subjects submitted by engineers, researchers and clinicians.

Delegates will also include professionals from leading science, technology and medical institutions. Find out more and register for your place here.

The Towards Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS) Conference 19th – 21st July 2017.
This conference will include presentations, discussions and exhibitions that showcase the latest results and methods of autonomous robotics research and applications. Find out more on the UK Robotics Week website.
As if that wasn’t enough, the fifth in the Transformers series is being released the same week…

Transformers, Robots in disguise.

The New Transformers Movie, The Last Knight.
This science fiction action film series is loved by robotics fans worldwide. The four previous Transformers films have had mixed reviews from critics but nobody can doubt the quality of the action, music and the transformers themselves. The visual effects used are the reasons that we always go back for more and the trailer for The Last Knight certainly looks like it won’t disappoint!

The Story.
Humans and Transformers are at war and Optimus Prime is gone. The history of the Transformers on earth contains secrets crucial to saving the future. This story redefines what it means to be a hero with good becoming bad and bad transforming to evil.
The Last Knight will be released on 23rd June 2017.

As you can see there is plenty to look forward to this month. Our biggest challenge will be how to fit it all in! We’d love to hear from you if you are attending any of the events. Please get in touch  Contact us

Keep calm and robot on.
