The Smart Geometry workshop has begun!
The space was made available to us on Sunday so that we could calibrate Ginger and get set up before our participants arrived. Many of the teams had to construct elaborate scaffolding or security fencing but, luckily for us, our robot is not very dangerous and very portable.
This morning our participants arrived and Anton introduced the project. They were then set the task for forming groups and brainstorming real world use cases. So far the uses include Civil Engineering, Housing and Structural analysis.
During a break we all played through a short tutorial that Ben put together. Many of the participants had never played Minecraft and we decided to get them acquainted in the most fun way possible. The resulting structure is being printed by Ginger overnight.
Now designing the gameplay and linking it with analysis and robotic manufacture.
