Connected, we can create change.
So at Design Indaba 2013, we’re connecting the disconnected.
Thanks to the power of MTN telecommunications, isolated design students will experience the inspiration of Design Indaba for the very first time.
Introducing the Connector Bot, a beta test proxy droid.
It will run a live two-way uplink between Design Indaba and the Tshwane University of Technology.
Engineered by the CSIR, the Connector Bot will be piloted by students from over one thousand kilometers away via intuitive touchscreen controls.
Seeing through the eye of the Connector Bot, the students will rove around Design Indaba, attending lectures and interacting with speakers like any other delegate.
This demonstration of the power of connectedness launches Design Indaba Day 2013
Developed by MTN, in conjunction with Design Indaba and the CSIR.
