Kids tech studio on wheels Robotvilla! A dream come true!

From a dream…

Exactly a year ago, in the summer of 2016, Robotvilla popped into my mind and the blog about kids, code and robots was born. Now the blog is actually going to bloom into a Kids tech studio on wheels!

Eindhoven Maker Faire 2017 [video]

We went to the Maker Faire in Eindhoven, the Netherlands! The Maker Faire is an event where people of all ages gather to be amazed. The Faire is about, Art, Technology, Robots, weird objects, innovation, and creativity.

We had an amazing time. The Moov robots were so impressive, as well as the R2D2’s who were driving around the Faire. The kids loved them. I also talked to a lot of interesting people for example Teun from BYOR (Build Your Own Robot), we’ll actually collaborate soon! And also the maker of the fabCreator, an amazing CO2 laser cutter and the creator of a real Furby old age home!

We saw so many cool things that I decided to make a little video about it. Enjoy!

Robo greets,
