At the booth of our partner 1zu1 prototypen, roboy caught the heart of the visitors of the swiss plastics fair. For many the most intriguing part was roboy’s hand – printed in one piece including the joints. The complexity of the part, which includes small cable channels, spring mounting and a rotational joint that mimics the natural rotation of the ulna and radius bones would not have been possible with any other manufacturing technology and truly shows how the consequent use of 3D printing made the creation of roboy possible.
Oh Yeah! Roboy just confirmed his next awesome stay in 2014! He’ll be at CeBit 2014 in Hannover from 10.3. to 14.3. in the SWISS Innovation Pavilion on Research & Innovation together with many exciting Start-ups, ETH, EPFL, University of Zurich and innovative ICT companies. Almost 100’000 visitors will see me … oi!
