Rethink robotics with this challenge, utilizing hardware to create an assistant, a companion, or something else entirely!
Whether it's a friendly digital face to keep you grounded, or a functional robotic arm to assist you in your projects, we want to see the droids and robots of the future! How can robotic companions or assistants help us thrive in this new normal? Your designs should utilize robotics in a unique way, as a personal assistant, a friendly companion, or something else entirely!
This could look like:
- Companion bots that provide motivation, positivity, or work-life balance reminders
- Collaborative (cobots) that assist with simple tasks like pick-and-place or other functions
- Robots that translate or otherwise transcribe spoken dictation
