We’ve last-minute been able to add Limor Schweitzer of RoboSavvy to the program for CustomerMade. Limor will join Søren Lund (Lego) and Lars Bo Jeppesen (CBS) in their sofa-conversation with Claus Dahl.
I met with Limor a week ago in Israel where he demoed the fabulous KHR-1 and RoboNova robots.
The KHR-1 (1st gen) and RoboNova (2nd gen) robots are both built from kits sold by Kondo Kagaku, a Japanese maker of digital servos which suddenly out of chance found itself at the center of attention of underground Japanese robot hackers (full story here).
We’re certain Limor is a great addition and will be able to give Søren Lund of Lego Mindstorms NXT a real run for the trophy of user-created innovation in the field of robotics that Søren and Lego have held since Wired’s February Mindstorms piece.
ps. The program will be updated tonight to reflect these minor changes.
