We could not send the students to Design Indaba because it is expensive and very far. So we teamed up with some really smart robotics and mechatronics engineers to help us build a robot that could be there as the students representative.
They also programmed a clever app that enabled the students to drive the robot around the Design Indaba conference auditorium from over 1000 kilometers away. Our robot head contained Samsung tablets that ran a live two-way uplink between the students and Design Indaba. We did this so that the students could see where they were driving the bot as well as talk to anyone that they met.
