Fall Chibotica 2010, Oct. 24, 2010

Sunday was no slouch! Our booth had visitors all day. People asking about the Turing Machine (mostly because they had no idea what it did!), playing against the Marble Maze, trying to hide from the face tracking gun, watching the Monster Chess pieces move and of course, watching the competitions and demonstration. There was also a big crowd awaiting their wooden nickel produced by Mike D.’s Nickel-O-Matic.

This was the first day that iHobby Expo was open to the public. Chibots was busy with the first three Chibotica competitions: Basic Line Following, Racing Line Following and Line Maze. The robotics team from The UNAM competed in these three games. The guest exhibitors had arrived and set up shop- The booth came to life with displays showcasing technology, ingenuity, creativity and a bit of madness.
