The robots return! On Sunday, October 14, as part of Future Innovators Day, dozens of robots will descend on The HUB for the 2nd annual Robot Block Party.

From our homes to the office, warehouse floor to city streets, robots are more and more a part of our everyday lives. Boston is a leader in supporting the development, testing, and adoption of some of these game-changing technologies. Bring your family to check out the latest in robotics and experience exciting demos of the products that will shape our future.

Future Innovators Day requires a FREE General Admission Pass or paid to HUBweek. Kids under 16 years of age do not have to register for HUBweek. Come by to ask questions, interact with robots, and inspire our next generation of innovators!

Robots are taking over Boston’s City Hall Plaza — and no, that’s not a political statement.

More than two dozen robots will be displayed in action for the public at an event that’s being billed as a “robot block party.”
Sunday morning’s free gathering springs from a partnership between the city of Boston and MassRobotics, a collective of engineers, rocket scientists and entrepreneurs.

It will include an “autonomous vehicle petting zoo” showcasing self-driving vehicles created by nuTonomy, Optimus Ride, Delphi and a collaboration between Toyota and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Mayor Marty Walsh calls the event a chance “to see Boston’s inventions in person and explore why Boston is a hub for innovation and technology.”
