Last weekend was host to a 3-day Cloud Robotics Hackathon where teams around the world connected robots to cloud services such as MyRobots. If you were following the Facebook, Google+, and Twitter feeds, then you saw some amazing projects involving web services, iPads, robots of all kinds, wireless technologies, and connected together via the Internet.
“We made a network of cheerleading robots for an educational math game that can post the scores on MyRobots, then display them on a robotic scoreboard.”
I loved how the project has a feedback loop with learning and the idea of leveling up. The “gamification” concept just got married with Cloud Robotics and the Internet of Things. Looked like a great weekend!
