RoboGames is the olympics for robots – a three-day event in the San Francisco Bay Area that brings the smartest humans and best robots from
around the world to compete in a wide array of robotics oriented events (over 40 countries have participated in past events.)
Cart-wheeling androids, combat robots, autonomous vehicles, LEGO robots, soccer bots and even cocktail-mixing barbots – there’s something for
everyone at RoboGames! The event also features demonstrations by leading robotics industry designers and engineers, kinetic art exhibits, and
the latest in tech products, gear, and innovation.
RoboGames began as an enthusiastic experiment in robotic cross-pollination, when dozens of disparate, well-established robot competitors were
placed under the same roof. Bringing together builders from acclaimed fields such as combat robotics, robot soccer, sumo, fire-fighting, androids,
and kinetic art, RoboGames enables robot builders to exchange ideas and share their knowledge and experience with each other. Varying
disciplines now learn from one-another and the event has grown into a fantastic multi-layered, multi-cultural experience like no other. The best part
is that RoboGames is completely open–anyone can compete: competitors have been garage builders, K- 12 school teams, professional engineers,
and university researchers. Come see the future evolve!
Educational Outreach: In addition to the 60 adult events, RoboGames sponsors 10 different “junior league” events for kids in K- 12, which are
free for kids to compete. University students also have the opportunity to publish and present research papers.
Sponsors: Your company can reach millions of people around the world by sponsoring RoboGames. Tens of thousands of people attend the
event in person, and millions are reached from the media-exposure – print, web, radio, and television. Popular with techies, sports-fans and
hipsters alike, RoboGames has something to offer every demographic.
