Supercon workshop on Sunday morning - get your tickets! You will learn hands-on how the robot operates, and the various sub-systems involved to make it work.

ENVIRONMENTAL ROBOTICS BIOBLITZ!

Our environment is facing challenges, especially with the increase of pollution. We as makers and hackers can help mitigate this! Join us as we use a robot to clean a nearby park of litter. The robot will use its arm to pick up any litter while logging air quality and imagery data mapped to GPS coordinates. In this workshop you will learn hands-on how the robot operations. We will then head inside and perform data analysis to gather insights and share. 

SUNDAY MORNING - GET TICKETS HERE


MISSION: BOWIE REPLICATION

    Bowie consists of over 100+ 3D printed pieces. We need your help to bring pieces of Bowie to Supercon, where it will all come together. If you are going to Supercon and have a 3D printer, leave a comment on this page here and we'll get started by adding you to the chat

    3D Printer requirements:

    - print PLA

    - 0.4mm max diameter nozzle

    - build volume of at minimum 120mm^3

    - are willing to donate ~500g of filament and 4-8h of print time

    Bring your pieces to Supercon, and we'll assemble the robot on Friday and Saturday evening (somewhere at Supercon). Then we'll have the robot rolling in time for the workshop on Sunday morning.

    Hackaday community, we'd super appreciate your help to make this come together! This will be quite an experiment. Possibly the first globally replicated 3D printed robot?

    LET'S GO BUILD BOWIE TOGETHER! :)
