SEPTEMBER 2017

Attending the World Robotics Olympiad national competition at the Tshwane University of Technology in Pretoria was a complete blast. The participants all performed exceptionally, and we got to mingle with various like-minded Roboticists!

SEPTEMBER 2017

We were both excited and honoured to be invited by the CEO of Mercurial Pictures, Dr. L. Manzi, to give a technical presentation about the uses and impact of Robotics in the film industry . Our presentation was met with great enthusiasm at MUT in Kwa-Zulu Natal; both by the students at the University of Technology as well as by various national and international guests at the CineCulture at Essence festival. Enabling and inspiring many budding mechatronics engineers and roboticists was most certainly a highlight; and we look forward to seeing many great movies based in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres coming out of Africa in the near future.
