Ubiquitous robotics: let's welcome our new flatmates!

General description

We are at the dawn of a robotic revolution, much in the same way as the computer business was 30 years ago. The parts needed to build robots have become cheaper, and computer's processing power is high enough even for those who don't want to spend a lot of money. Robots are already everywhere: manufacturing robots used in assembly lines in the car industry, robotic arms that help handicapped persons or perform surgery, domestic robots that vacuum-clean the floor and electronic companies that make robotic toys that can resemble people, dogs and even dinosaurs. This is your chance to discover the fascinating world of robotics! You will also get to enjoy Spanish culture, discovering the way we study, eat and party; the way we enjoy life.
