Come see lunar rovers and meet dancing robots
The AT&T Shape event is taking place July 15th and 16th @ AT&T Park in San Francisco. Come see the exhibitors that are bringing the robotics aspect of the Emerging Technologies focus area to life. Here’s a glimpse at the truly unique experience you will encounter by visiting the Shape exhibits. Enjoy…
SoftBank Robotics: The company has developed two humanoid robots that are intended to be helpful to humans. One is named Pepper and is much more than a robot; he’s a companion that can communicate with you through the most intuitive interfaces we know: voice, touch, and emotions. Although there are about 10,000 Pepper robots in use around the world, there aren’t many in the United States…yet. Come to the booth and be one of the first to see and interact with Pepper. He will also have his robotic friend, NAO, with him. Be sure to ask them (or their human counterparts) about their developer program, as well.
Astrobotic – Have you ever wanted to see a lunar rover in person? Now’s your chance. Stop by to learn more about how they are making the moon accessible to the world. Plus, you’ll get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a real lunar rover. To learn more about how Astrobotic is revolutionizing access to the moon, come see the company’s Director of Business Development Dan Hendrickson’s presentation on “Opening the Moon to the World” at 9:15 am on Saturday, July 16th.
ROBOTIS – Everything from the ROBOTIS OP2 (NSF-Funded Open Platform Humanoid Project) to the ROBOTIS MINI (3D Printable and Programmable Humanoid) will be on display at this exhibit. While all that may sound a little heavy, they’ll break it up a bit with a robot dance party. Adults and kids alike with enjoy visiting with ROBOTIS PLAY 600 PETs in the Maker area. Best of all, you can build a robotic pet. Developers attending the Shape hackathon can work their magic on the ROBOTIS’ OLLOBOT (a smart, mobile IoT companion that assists, monitors, and works with you at home).
These are just a few of the exhibits, talks, and fun activities you can experience in Emerging Technologies focus area at Shape. We hope to see you there.
