BEST Lab at the 2016 Robot Block Party

The Berkeley Emergent Space Tensegrities Lab recently participated in the Silicon Valley Robotics Association’s 2016 Robot Block Party in San Jose, CA ((https://svrobo.org/robot-block-party/). We brought two of our spherical tensegrity robots, the current version of the 4-legged robot ULTRA Spine, and many demos and models. Many thanks to our labs’ volunteers, Mallory Daly, Brian Cera, Ellande Tang, Drew Sabelhaus, and Lara Janse Van Vuuren. Visit us at next year’s event!
