Jan 27: Different kind of Robotycs Mayhem

January 31, 2016

Everything went so well at our Enabling Hardware Technology event that something had to balance it off. Mayhem struck the Robotycs group on Wednesday night.

The first arrivals faced the elements and a locked door at the DDO. There were less people waiting outside than expected – a few of those registered had to bow out due to last minute work problems. And that included Ramy Ghattas our speaker for the evening!

But things always seem to work out nicely for ylab . The right person with the key arrived to let us in. And Ramy gets our Standup Guy of the Month Award (we just made that up) for sending us a replacement in the form of a large and well-qualified Paul Giampuzzi.

Paul's the tall one. Nice line-up picture that could get published in snapd.

Paul is  New Products and Innovation Director at Logics Academy, and co-founded the University of Toronto Robotics Association (UTRA) with Ramy.

Paul vividly described their experiences with several Gold and Silver prize winning entries in the Robogames international robot competition held in San Mateo, California. They designed, built,  repaired and drove their robot named TSA Inspected, shown here demolishing a competitor.

It was a great evening for all who attended, and we thank Paul and Ramy for their continued help and support for ylab.
