Build your own robot

Can robots think? See? Seek each other’s company? It sure looks like that if you see the BeeBots:  small robots that follow each other around and move in swarms. How is that possible? Every BeeBot has a light on its back. With simple electronics they can follow this light and as a result, each other. Come to the E-lab in Laplace and see how you can influence ‘swarm’ robots with a torch or a different kind of light. In this workshop you will learn to build a robot with attitude.
