Robot Fajt, Popping and speedy challenges

By on November 10, 2017

Rally competition, robot wrestling and speedy challenges are on the program when tricky robots meet in the Stockholm Robot Championship at the Technical Museum. During the weekend, visitors can test robot programming, attend workshops and try the robot-like dance Popping.

For the seventh consecutive year, the Technical Museum is transformed into a gladiator-like battlefield, where robots fight for the first place in the STHLM Robot Championship. New to this year is that the competition takes place inside the museum’s large exhibition hall among glass showcase and objects. Come and follow sumorobots that butt, nudges, pushes and throw their opponents out of the ring, robots programmed to follow sneaky tracks and fast folkrace robots who overturning and tackle each other in unscrupulous hunting for the title STHLM Robot Champion.

The whole weekend has robot focus and for those who want to program a robot there is a chance to try. The museum’s lego robots are ready to receive instructions to get along tricky paths and perform different missions. This requires no prerequisites – just enough to be curious. Even the smallest can program Cubetto robots and busy oneself together with cute robot seal Paro.

On Sunday there is a chance to test the robot-like dance Popping when Stockholm School of Culture runs dance show and dance workshop (13.30-14 and 15-15.30, a pass takes about 30 minutes). Suitable for both small and large robots.

– At times when we talk about the distance between man and machine, more and more, we want to give our visitors the chance to turn into robots by testing the robot-like dance Popping. We do this together with Stockholm School of Culture and besides all other robot activities, I am very much looking forward to this, says Linda Sandberg, Program Manager, Technical Museum
