Robot Block Party | Silicon Valley Robotics
Robot Launchpad stashed this in +Robots+
We're celebrating National Robotics Week with the biggest and best showcase of robot companies, startups... and robots! Come join us!
You're also invited to the 'Afterparty' - use "SVRPW13" to RSVP :)
Okay, I gotta know: What is National Robotics Week?
Here's some trivia - National Robotics Week is the last federally mandated 'week' of anything. It's also awesome: Events in all 50 states celebrating robotics from April 6 to April 14 - http://www.nationalroboticsweek.org/
Holy Roboticists, NATIONAL ROBOTICS WEEK IS AWESOME.
All 50 states? This is so much bigger than I realized.
How many people do you think will be at the Robot Block Party?
Last year we counted maybe 2000 people over the course of the day. I've got 30 robotics companies, startups and groups signed up to demo atm.
Cool! Is this a good event to bring kids, or more of a professional convocation?
It's good for everyone! Bring kids between 1am and 5pm.
Is there a map to the VW Automotive Innovation Lab?
I usually get lost in Stanford University...
Putting maps on website this weekend - It's Oak Rd off Stock Farm Rd, near Sand Hill Rd and parking will be dreadful. It's also Cool Product Expo in the Arriga? center and we're getting shuttles between the two events sorted - even more robots!
Great -- thanks Andra! Shuttles will help, since parking at Stanford is usually dreadful.
