Of Robots and Kids

QUT was host to Robotronica again – and it was amazing!

What a robotics fest it was! The best part was seeing the excitement in the kids eyes when interacting with our robots. It is always great to talk to the public about your research and being able to inspire kids!

If you missed it, here are videos, photos and media coverage of our Naos, Baxter and mobile platforms:

Robotronica: Thousands glimpse into robot future at Queensland University of Technology

Robots, machines and a real-life cyborg have given curious humans a glimpse of what the world will look like a decade from now.
Thousands flocked to Brisbane’s Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Gardens Point campus for a day of fun, education and discovery at Robotronica.
