NodeBots Day, Melbourne 2014

NodeBots Day landed in Melbourne at NAB Village!

Our interdisciplinary team of cohorts from backgrounds as diverse as Engineering, Computer Science and Arts all put our heads together to develop a working JavaScript robot over the course of the day.

We each tried our hand at setting up the (what came to be notorious) JS Robotics and IoT programming framework, johnny-five. In the end, we got it playing nicely and our robot roared around the floor… with the help of some aftermarket upgrades: Sharpie graphic art, rear spoilers and rubber bands!

Our team was very proud to take out the NodeBots Day First Prize for our efforts — an Intel Galileo!
