3D Printed Robots / London / Mon 15th July 2019

Post by helpful » Sat Jul 13, 2019 3:59 am

The July meeting of the RISC OS User Group Of London will be:

3D Printed Robots, presented Leo White
Monday 15th July 2019, 7.45pm
The Blue Eyed Maid, upstairs in the restaurant
173 Borough High Street, SE1 1HR

A bit off-topic, but I thought this might be interesting to those who hang around here :-)

This month at ROUGOL we will be forecasting the Rise Of The Robots as Leo White brings along some of his robots and the 3D printer used to produce them.

Leo has been a regular competitor at the Raspberry Pi Foundation's annual Pi Wars robot competition. He will show us how he designs his robots and demonstrate the 3D printer used to produce the parts. It will show how far and fast things have progressed since Leo brought along an early Pi and robot arm (from Maplins, remember them?) to ROUGOL in June 2012.

We will also have the new Raspberry Pi 4 on display and will be discussing its capabilities and the work needed to get RISC OS running on this much upgraded board.

ROUGOL's venue is easy to reach by public transport from in and around London and the south east:
- 2 minutes walk from Borough tube station
- 5 minutes walk from London Bridge station
- 10 minutes from Waterloo (two stops eastbound on the Jubilee line to London Bridge)
- 20 minutes from Euston and Kings Cross/St Pancras (southbound on the Bank branch of the Northern Line to Borough)

The meetings take over the pub's upstairs restaurant for the evening. Entry is free, food & drink plentiful (but not free!).

Bryan.
