Researchers want to build swarm of 1,000 Droplet robots | IEEE Spectrum

“The Droplets project is looking for at least US $10,000 to construct what looks like 100 robots. This isn’t to suggest that each robot actually costs $100: a full 50 percent of that $10k goes straight to the cast that has to be made in order to efficiently injection-mold the plastic outer shells. So, all that the CU Boulder team needs to make a full thousand robots is $30,000, since once the molds are out of the way and volume discounts kick in, the price per robot drops to $30.”

Communicating innovation: What can we do better?

The question on what role communications play in forming the perception of innovative technology was discussed in this workshop. Experts explained how the innovation uptake should be supported by effective communication of innovations: explaining the benefits, tackling risks and fears of the audiences, and taking innovation closer to the general public.
