Nao 1337 and I participated in the first edition of the Montreal Mini Maker Faire. We were quite impressed by the organization and the attendance, treat it was a blast. Nao1337 could play with children at Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock, hold their hands and walk with them, do some dance demonstrations, and show off.

We had the chance to meet some very interesting people, including (but certainly not limited to) Bertier Luyt from Le FabShop and Marc-André Bazergui, creator of a fully functional LEGO Wall-E.

See some pictures of the event below.

 

Nao 1337 Plays Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock at Maker Faire NY 2011


Nao 1337 played Rock, online Paper, health Scissors, sick Lizard, Spock (the geek version of Rock Paper Scissors) against children and adults at Maker Faire NY 2011. The 1337 robot was able to play with the public with minimal intervention from operators and as shown in the video below, everybody loved him.

The idea is to have Nao memorize all the matches and come up with a way of predicting the human moves much like the New Your Times Version of the game.

See the pictures below in order to see more robotic awesomeness from the World Maker Faire 2011 which was held in Queens, NY.
