Madeline Gannon and Zack Jacobson-Weaver presented Robo.Op – an open hardware / open software platform for hacking industrial robots at this year's Open Hardware Summit in Rome.
We were honored to be invited to speak at this year's event, and delighted to meet so many inspiring people making the world a better place through Open Hardware. The OHS will be posting video of the talks soon, but you can also a summary from this recap from making society.
We also had a wonderful conversation with Alicia Soria of Postdigital Node on how robotics can blur boundaries between analog and digital domains:
We also want to give a final special thanks to Makerfaire Rome for sponsoring the summit, the organizers of this year's event (Addie Wagenknect, Simone Cicero, and Nahid Alam) and the Ada Initiative, an organization supporting women in open tech and culture, for granting Madeline one of this year's Ada Lovelace Fellowships.
