Next Meetup

First Thursday General Topics
We encourage you to bring along projects for "Show and Tell". A project can be as little as a few sheets of paper that describe what your designing all the way up to and including a finished robotic device. We have 110v power and a video projector, so feel free to bring a laptop or other portable electronics. Our typical mix is artists, engineers, teachers, hobbyists and sometimes just folks that peer in to see what all the racket is about! :-) We are kid friendly and encourage young people to become "junior members". Everyone is welcome, children younger than 12 should be escorted by a parent. You may be surprised at what our active youth have done... be sure to come visit us soon! If you like what you see and want to join up... membership in the robot group is just $25.00 a year which includes an official Robot Group T-Shirt. (Such a deal!) Junior memberships are $15.00 and includes a t-shirt as well. NOTE: Though becoming a member is highly encouraged, you do NOT have to be a member to attend a meeting. Hope to see you at our next meeting!

About Us: The Robot Group is a non-profit 501(3c) corporation founded in the Spring of 1989 by a small group of Austin, TX artists and engineers who shared a common vision: utilizing technology to create and explore new mediums for art. The Robot Group has attracted a diverse audience of young and old, tech and non-tech alike. Works by the group and its members have been featured in:

Maker Faire
The 2001 hit movie Spy Kids
Insomniac with Dave Attell
Nuts and Volts Magazine
Dorkbot Austin
SERVO Magazine
First Night Austin celebration
Mansion OF Terror Haunted House
Austin Childrens Museum

The Group's activities have inspired articles in Newsweek, Mondo 2000, boing-boing and FringeWare Review. We have also made appearances on ABC's Good Morning America and an episode of Invention on the Discovery Channel. Other TV appearances include the debut episode of Art Brigade, and the German program Kulture Report.
