I just returned from the 2nd Hellenic Robotics Conference in the city of Patras, and I can say it was pretty... DARN AWESOME! It lasted two days and the topics discussed involved artificial vision, kinematics and performance factors, underwater and sea robotics, robot control, movement design and applications in education, biomimetics and nanorobotics and finally space and airborne robotics. These subject were mainly covered by diploma and doctorate essays by greek universitie's students. There where also some presentations by proffesor's and the guest star was Dr Nikolaos Mauridis. Here's a reference news page on him:http://www.timeoutdubai.com/knowledge/features/11681-hot-seat-dr-nikolaos-mavridis In all there were many innovative ideas, some clever build propositions ... and some trivial ones. Unfortunately in the end all that made me feel to much of a gray-haired, chalk-covered professor. I want to go out there and build something!
