Missed the event? Don’t fret! You can watch this talk by Cubotix founder Martin Wojtczyk as it was given live at Maker Faire (ok you missed the awesome flying drones but you can catch that next year).
We’ve heard about Maker Faire before but experiencing it for oneself is a whole different story. It’s a joyous communal celebration of human creativity and ingenuity that can dive deep into robotics and technology but also extend far to theatrical arts.
In our Robotics corner included fellow exhibitors NASA, Sphero, Ponga, UK-based Extreme Fliers, and Open ROV. As Google invested heavily in robotics recently, it’s no wonder we brushed shoulders with one of the company’s founding partner, Larry Page.
With over 130,000 attendees coming from over 42 countries and 49 states, Rover sure had a blast at his first time appearance making many new friends and meeting old ones at the 9th annual Maker Faire Bay Area 2014.
If you weren’t able to make it to the event don’t fret. For a limited time we’re offering the instructions and LEGO Digital Designer files to build your very own Rover in exchange for your honest feedback on what you’d like to see in a personal robot on this short single page survey (Update: survey is now closed). We’d love to hear from you. Be a part of the growing community that’s excited about building Rover’s next generation!
Demoing at several conferences and engagements throughout the U.S. and Europe allowed us to see that Rover sparked significant interest and curiosity from a diverse age range of people across a variety of industries. So we decided to enter Rover in Robot Launch, a global robotics startup competition with judges from major investment and venture capital firms, successful robotics entrepreneurs, IP lawyers, designers, and engineering consultants. We are proud that Rover made it to the top 30! Go Rover!
