The Somerville Robot Open-House & Meetup will be held as part of our annual Winter Market & Open House. This is an informal event which will highlight some of the robots developed at Artisan's Asylum, visiting robots, as well as demonstrating some 3D Printing & Laser Cutting Techniques which are used to manufacture robots. The event is open to all and we hope that you will bring some of your own robot technology so that we can share hardware and programming techniques. All are welcome and you do not have to bring a robot to attend. Children are more than welcome as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
