Through the four zones of the festival, visitors will get the opportunity to interact with robots with various abilities such as the world’s best actor robot, the most talented robot piano player; learn a few yoga moves from one of the most flexible robots, enjoy pancakes made by the most intricate robotics arms, learn about swarm robotics technology and their uses in environmental crisis, coding, machine learning and much more.
