Expo 2001 was a Hit!
Over 3,000 robotic enthusiasts were on hand for the 2nd Annual Acroname Robotics Expo held at the Boulder Elks' Lodge on March 3rd, 2001. Scott Askew of NASA's Automation Simulation and Robotics Division highlighted the event with his presentation on "Humanoids in Space." Also on hand was Larry Esposito of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics. Dr. Esposito spoke of his current research regarding a robot craft to Pluto.
The competitions turned out to be a huge success, but it was the LEGO Workshop that stole the show. Ten teams using just a laptop and a LEGO Mindstorm Kit had just the afternoon to build a robot that could challenge the Acroname Obstacle Course.
