SO! It’s half-term. Many of you are busy taking a well-deserved rest (STOP WORKING!) and some of you might even be thinking of visiting the museum.
If you do, make sure you head to the Antenna gallery, on the ground floor, to check out Robots to the Rescue, a live event featuring an incredible robot that will do incredible things, and meet the University of Warwick engineers who’ve developed it.
This hardy little ‘bot is designed to navigate rough terrain and hunt for signs of life - searching dangerous disaster zones such as collapsed buildings, making it easier and safer for rescuers to find their way to survivors.
They are only here until tomorrow so make haste!
If you can’t make it to see them, Futurecade’s Robo-Lobster game might make you feel better. Control your mine-seeking robots to keep the harbour safe from attack! The game is based around the idea of robots doing dangerous jobs so humans don’t have to, just like University of Warwick’s rescue robot will do one day.
So will robots just keep improving our lives? What kind of tasks are you happy for robots to take on?
