Los Alamos BEAM Workshop

March 19, 2001

We're happy to announce that the 2001 Los Alamos BEAM Robotics Workshop is going ahead this May 3 to 6th! After much delay and threats of budget-cuts, funding has finally been secured. Thanks to Joe Vigal and Paul Argo of the Los Alamos National Laboratories for keeping this great event alive for this final year! It's questionable if the workshop will be resurrected next year, so if you are at all interested in coming out to this great BEAM event, this is most likely your last chance!

This year's event will again be at the Santa Fe Art Institute, in the 4300 square foot indoor studio. This is adjacent to a splendid outdoor courtyard with a large fountain (ideal for testing aquatics...). Santa Fe, New Mexico is a beautiful area, with lots of sunshine and splendid tourist attractions. That bit is for you to convince Mom/Dad/Wife/Husband that there'll be something to do for the non-robogeeks in the family.

We're told that the Santa Fe Art Institute is taking care of registrations, so you may want to contact them at (505) 424-5050 for details. We'll try to get updates as soon as possible.

BEP Application: Bare Bones PhotoVore

We like to have some play time at Solarbotics, and the "Bare Bones Photovore" is the results of one of these play sessions. It's a very simple (amongst the simplest, we'll hazard to say) light-seeking solar-powered robot, and find it easy to build using the Bicore Experimenter's PCB.

Mark Tilden just sent us this link - there are more BioBots! The "B.I.O. Bots" were a hit at this years New York Toy Fair and it looks like we might be seeing more of these robots in the future! USA Today carried some pictures of the new BEAM ideology based robots, along with some […]
