Welcome Robotics Enthusiasts!
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. Our meetings include lectures, competitions and Show-N-Tell.
See About Us for directions and maps.
Please join us this Saturday, March 11th at 10:00am for our next *in person* Meetup!
We're at Cal State Long Beach, 1331 Palo Verde Ave., Long Beach CA 90815 Conference Room 103.
Here's what's on the agenda for this Saturday...
9:30am The Doors open. Stop by early and say hi! Or log in early to make sure your mic works. We'll be here.
10:00am Alan will talk about using fusion360 to adapt an eye mechanism to InMoov so it can wink and blink! We'll use some of the more advanced mesh editing features to import the inmoov head as reference and to make sure everything fits.
11:00am Jim will talk about giving your robot a personality: Using a GPT service locally or from the cloud right from your speech capable robot! Plus… an intro to prompt engineering to start building it.
12:00pm Lunch Break / Business meeting / The LA Maker Faire! :-) / In Memoriam. :-(
01:00pm Show-n-Tell / Open Session. It's a great opportunity to get caught up on our members' projects and what we've been up to. Are you working on something? Bring it in!
