IIT-B TECH-FEST :An event to look forward for

From dancing robots by the famed Alebaran Robotics(video at the end of post), one of Europe’s largest Robotics Company, to the Skype-controlled I Mind robot and innovative real-time applications of the basic sciences of nature, Techfest’s exhibition has something for everyone. The Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay’s (IIT-B’s) Techfest is scheduled to take place from January 6 to 8, 2012.
The IIT-B’s annual festival is expected to have 35 international exhibits from 16 countries, where famed Nao Robotics, T’N’T Robotics, The Crazy Copter and many more will bring to life the essence of robotics and basic sciences.

Exhibition has always been the most popular segment of this world-renowned technology festivals. With the kind of exhibits for next year, the IIT-B’s Techfest will surely bring to India the state-of-the-art technology being practiced across the world.
Shrey Singh, a member from the Techfest’s organising committee explained, “The NAO Robot from Aldebaran Robotics, France, a world leader in humanoid robotics, will be presented at the fest. The robots are capable of expressing emotions such as anger, fear, sadness, happiness, excitement and pride and will get upset if the human fails to comfort it or when confronted by a stressful situation that they are unable to cope with. Some robotic applications are being presented in India for the first time.”
Shrey added, “The exhibition also is going to present interesting technologies like the smallest Quadcopter, one such prototype that we saw in the film, 3 Idiots. But the one being presented at the Techfest, coming from Sweden is the smallest with dimensions of just one inch. This can be used for army surveillance, wireless network extension, roof inspection and pipeline inspection and cell tower inspection.”
Shreya explained, “Nature’s Raincoats, another segment, is a public understanding of science collaboration between researchers at the Nottingham Trent University and the University of Oxford that originated as an Exhibit for The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2009.”
