Dear readers, please accept my apologizes.
Most of the last posts were about the past and I did not inform you about what happened after the presentation in Abu Dhabi.
Well, good news!!!
The team is growing: we move from 12 people to 22 team members (if I find the kind of people that I need, you know what I mean).
We have been looking for a new office and eventually we have find one: in December we should leave the current lab (the "fire place" one) that is 200 square meters, and go to the new one that is going to be 4 times bigger (800).
During the summer we had the opportunity to present REEM-B at 3 events: I can tell you, we have been very busy!.
First, we had in July an invitation to Campus Party in Valencia, the biggest LAN-party in Spain. The experience was nice: honestly I would have expected more interest from the Spanish press, since we did the robot in Barcelona, but anyway it was cool when we moved the robot to the Science Museum and all the kids come to see our robot.
Then, in August, there was the Intel development Forum in San Francisco. We have been presented as a robot powered by Intel and we got mutual publicity (even if it might have been confusing, since there were people that thought that the robot was built by Intel). Ok, I am exaggerating saying "mutual": we have got publicity thanks to Intel.
Last, a couple of days ago there was an international press conference of Solidworks in Barcelona. Solidworks is one of the most important 3D CADs solution in mechanical engineering and since we use their software, we have been selected as 1 of the 3 "success stories" worldwide.
Anyway, I am afraid that our Autumn will be even worse (or better, it depends from your point of view).
