Robotics infiltrates Engadget’s Expand

March 19, 2013

The first Engadget Expand expo at Fort Mason in San Francisco was a great weekend out with lots of robotics. In fact the striking thing was how much of the event was talking about or demonstrating robotics – even in some of the panels which were ostensibly about something else ie. space exploration, smart devices and arguably even 3D Printing.

Speakers at Engadget’s weekend expo include: Steve Cousins of Willow Garage, Chris Anderson of 3D Robotics, Marc Raibert of Boston Dynamics, Russ Angold of Ekso Bionics, and Catherine Mohr of Intuitive Surgical. The panels are all online at Engadget and linked to below.
