Recently, I attended the Silicon Valley Robot Block Party. Like a mini-makers faire, it was a lot of fun. Folks were there with business robotics, home robotics, toy and entertainment robotics, and homemade robotic products by hobbyists and students.
Some of the robots showcased.
Early this year, I interviewed the organizer of the event, Andra Keay, about the opportunities and challenges she sees in the robotic community. She is an Managing Director at Silicon Valley Robotics, and Co Founder at Robot Garden
