Robotics Waterford Institute of Technology

with Jason Berry

Join Jason and meet his robots, maybe one that can solve a Rubik’s Cube in two minutes, or a robotic Flying Fish or perhaps the Battling Bots, giant Sumo Bots that will allow you to learn about robotics and programming a robot to “terminate” another team’s bot.”

Maybe you’ll meet a telepresence robot. “Think Skype on wheels,” says Jason. “Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, made this type of robot famous. Ours allows students from Brazil to drive around the lab when they return home.” Which one will you meet?
