Forget the Terminator and Chappie. Here’s a chance to party with robots who can perform surgery, protect soldiers on the battlefield, read your mind to control a flying helicopter and teach kids about technology. The Silicon Valley Robot Block Party at the WilmerHale Law Firm in Palo Alto will feature the hottest robotic startups and the coolest robotic technology from noon to 4 p.m. on April 8.
Presented in association with Silicon Valley Robotics, a professional association that supports innovation in robotic technologies, this free event is open to the public and is expected to draw more than 1,000 people.
Visitors can interact with robotic technology from the Silicon Valley’s top robotics firms, hobbyists and the world’s next generation of geniuses. To see what it’s like, take a look at this video from last year’s event
