Taking control of the NAO robot

NAO is a 58 cm tall humanoid robot, fully programmable, that has been created by french company Aldebaran Robotics. More than 5000 copies are already in use worldwide, in laboratories, universities and high schools.
In this session, we'll introduce you to the robot and show kids how to create an application from scratch using our native software Choregraphe, its visual interface and its drag-and-drop system.

    Thank you for arranging this session! Is this session going to be mostly watching a demo or will the kids get some hands-on interaction time with the robot(s)? How many NAO robots will be there? Should I bring my kid's laptop?

    • Arun G.

      Instructions are now updated, please bring laptop and install the software.

      Thanks Arun..please keep me posted, if possible, for any appropriate organized event for a 6 yr old in this category of science/computers.

      January 7, 2014

    • Arun G.

      The events will be posted on this meetup.

    Hi Arun, If the kid has no prior exposure to programming but has significant interest in Legos and Robotics, do you think he or she could benefit from this workshop?

    January 7, 2014

    • Arun G.

      This is not a workshop, only an introduction to NAO robots. So yes, it would be useful.

      January 7, 2014

    • Deepali J.

      Thanks! Will sign up in that case.

    How many guests can I bring? My husband, 10-year old son and I would like to attend. Is there any charge? Thanks!

    • Arun G.

      Sure

      Thanks so much, Mr. Gupta, for your so kind understanding as I am not a high tech person. My husband is a mainframe/Db2 specialist and he and my 10-year old son know much more about computers than me.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
