No extra information from the organisers yet, but I have been chatting to other robotic groups that are attending. From the conversations with people that were there last year, it is right up my alley, so to speak.

I will be staying over at the Holiday Inn Express, but I know that there are cheaper options available for people, including a YHA place not far away.

I will be bringing along a couple of other robots, such as my updated vision tracking rover which can follow balls around and follow me via a colourful target stuck to my a**e.

Considering bringing my vast array of WowWee robots to entertain the kids when I'm not performing with the Manoi.

Good luck! I'll be there in spirit, even if I won't be able to make it in person. :)

Thanks Lem.

In spirit, I'll save you some beer and a slice of pizza. In practice they will be long gone ;)

Getting everything together for the weekend, been working out a bit of a show between the rover and the Manoi. Should be quite entertaining.

We will be in the main Centre for life, not sure of the exact location until registration on the day.

Hehe,

It was a great event, very busy on the Saturday, a bit quieter on the Sunday (which was a relief).

Will get some photos and videos up soon.

Nice picture ;) I had the opportunity to go at the last minute, .......
How can any one NOT want to go to this????
..an unforgettable weekend ! The whole event although smaller than I expected, but it was fascinating.
The Maker and Hacker communities that attended are a truly open minded, free thinking and uninhibited network...... and just a Really nice welcoming group of people.

Several active forum members came...our chats were fascinating.

Limor: shame you could not front a stand I would say 30% of the exhibitors were small companies..but most were there for the community and contacts....eg Shape ways, oomlout, Matt Denton and Hackable Devices

ibot: I think I can speak for orac as well when I say we were sorry you could not make it.....PS my red eyed robot and I are both tea-total, any rumors you hear are completely unfounded...... ibot you should know better than to make accusations like this....The red eyes are just from dancing late into the night. With luck ,one of the robots may be getting I2C wiimote eye surgery in the future.
