Hello robotics enthusiasts! Stop by and see our robots every month. Everyone is welcome and no experience required. We have people from all ages and experience joining us every month who bring simple robots to extraordinary intelligent machines that include both hardware and software. Bring your kids so they can get inspired by these robots or to ask questions.We meet at California State University, Long Beach every second Saturday of the month and we include lectures, competitions and Show-N-Tell. See About Us for directions and maps. Want to see what we have done in previous months? June 2018 Meeting Report All Monthly meeting reports with lots of photos, videos and downloadable content.

RSSC is Invited to Attend a Play about AI and Robotics See full report: www.rssc.org/2017uncannyvalleyplayaboutaiinlb.html International Theatre in Long Beach, California present Uncanny Valley Visit them at http://ictlongbeach.org/ for tickets. RSSC Members get a discount. Come and see some of our InMoov humanoid robots promoting our society on opening night Friday April 21th, 2017.
Drawing on current research in artificial intelligence and robotics, UNCANNY VALLEY charts the relationship between Claire, a neuroscientist, and Julian, a nonbiological human. As Julian is “born” a few body parts at a time over the course of the play, Claire teaches him how to be as human as possible. UNCANNY VALLEY explores the painful divide between creator and creation, and how we are redefining what it means to be human in the twenty-first century. Inspired by Bina48 an uncannily realistic humanoid robot designed to look like a real human being named Bina Rothblatt blog.internationalcitytheatre.org/the-robot-that-inspired-the-script-bina48/
RSSC Visits RoboTech Fest in Long Beach on April 2, 2017
Our Meetings RSSC is an exciting and fun experimental robotics society formed in the late 1970's to meet the demand in interest in robotics in Southern California which to this day keeps on growing!. We meet once a month on the second Saturday of the month at California State University Long Beach in the Engineering Technology (ET) building, room 241 . Our meetings start at 10 AM with classes, special interest groups on different robotics subjects from simple to very complex. Anyoneinterested in robotics and other latest technologies such as 3D printing, Arduino maker movement, Particle, Raspberry Pi, Robotis, NAO, ROS Robot Operating System, InMoov, Lego, Artificial Intelligence of any age group and skill level is welcome to come to our meetings! We also have presenters from student projects, Battlebot builders to Mars rover drivers, movie and TV commercial robot builders and leaders from the robotics community. Stay up to date of what's going on by joining our mailing list! We are roboholics and love building autonomous robots!
