Hello, my name is Roboy!
The AI Lab of the University of Zurich and partners from the private sector and other Universities are constructing a humanoid robot called "Roboy". "Roboy" is a pioneering project in tendon-driven robotics requiring cutting edge expertise. On 9 March 2013 "he" will attend "Robots on Tour" for the first time and welcome the visitors with a surprising performance.
Meanwhile, a lot of fans and the media are following the development of "Roboy" on his website and on Facebook. The project is financed by crowdfunding, collecting small contributions from many individuals, among other sources and the community has the opportunity to support it and thereby pushing it forward. Every supporter will receive a small token of appreciation - from tickets to "Robots on Tour", a placement of a name or logo on "Roboy" himself to a dinner with "Roboy" and his initiator Prof. Dr. Rolf Pfeifer.
