Antweight combat robots (Mark Robson)
These are 150g remote-controlled fighting machines built by a diverse and interesting bunch of people; we meet up to fight them against each other in tournaments a few times per year. I’ll be talking about the social, practical, and of course technical aspects of the sport.
Usual format is to gather from 7:30pm and commence the talks at 8:00pm. Talks are ~20mins + Q&A with a break of 20mins for networking and beer.
*Before the second session there is an opportunity for any short announcements so please let us know on the night if you would like a slot or 1-2mins.
FYI: BCS (Berkshire) Social Tech Group meet up (7PM) before our talks. Its a great opportunity for food, drinks, networking and discussions about IT technology, business and advice.
Look forward to seeing you there!
