Thank you for a wonderful Oct 23 2021 Robot Block Party! I'm going to put some of the great pictures and video clips up shortly. Just letting you know already that we'll be doing it again on Saturday April 2, 2022 at Circuit Launch in Oakland! We expect to see lots of robot demos, robot races and robot Tech Talks, a Jobs Board, community networking and AR/VR zone, as well as amazing Brazilian BBQ, Bliss Pops and the popular Robot Block Party T-Shirts and Masks. 🙂 Come back here from Feb 1st to register.
