NxR participates in Hops n' Bots at the Adler Planetarium

On September 18, 2014, the NxR Lab participated in a public outreach event as part of the IROS 2014 Conference in Chicago. As part of the Adler After Dark series, in honor of the IROS conference, the event's theme was Hops n’ Bots. NxR Prof. Ed Colgate moderated a panel discussion on “Cheetahs, fish, fingers & bacteria: The coming menagerie of mechanical cohabitants” with Antonio Bicchi from the University of Pisa & Italian Institute of Technology, Sangbae Kim from MIT, Bradley Nelson from ETH Switzerland, and NxR Prof. Malcolm MacIver. The event sold out at 1,631 attendees, and the panel was watched by close to 200 people.
