Next Meetup

Robot Maker Faire
Our usual monthly robot builder meetup. We will have plenty of robots that make music, dance, draw, recognize items, or just roll around. We have a robot hand which plays rock-paper-scissors, and some unusual sensors, for example lidars and an OptoForce force sensing rubber bell. Everything can be touched and tried, most of them can be controlled. The creators of the robots will also be around, so you'll get a chance to ask questions and see how each robot works. We'll also have some interactive games, like building robots in the air with your hands, or the concentration meter which measures your brain activity while you're doing math exercises. We have surprise appearances from further robots, for example a giant metal spider, or a 120 cm tall humanoid robot which can speak and understand spoken language. You are also welcome to bring your own creations. Don't worry if they are not perfect, or not ready yet! Just bring what you have, show it to everyone, and you can get help to finish it if you want. The event is hosted by the Hungarian Robot Builders' Association (http://www.hungarianrobot.hu). There is no entrance fee, soft drinks and snacks are available for free.

What we're about

This is a group for people interested in building programmable robots. Aerial, ground, and aquatic vehicles, household robots, humanoid robots, and all others are equally in focus. We'll discuss best practices, sources, learning material, and show off our creations.

We have an Association, the Hungarian Robot Builders Association (or HURBA for short) which provides inspirational, material, financial, and professional support for robot-related projects.
