Hey! You there! What are your plans for National Robotics Week? It's an officially nationally recognized event in the United States, which I'm reasonably sure means that if you don't celebrate it, you get arrested or made fun of or something. To make sure this doesn't happen, there are a huge number of events all over the country, and you should find one near you to go check out.

The website has the rest of the information and the map of events. I cannot deny how awesome this is and would like to encourage others to learn about robotics. From the official web site.

The Purpose of National Robotics Week is to:
Celebrate the US as a leader in robotics technology development
Educate the public about how robotics technology impacts society, both now and in the future
Advocate for increased funding for robotics technology research and development
Inspire students of all ages to pursue careers in robotics and other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-related fields

This is very awesome and I would love for everyone to take an opportunity to learn about robotics. Here are some cool videos to inspire you for next week.

Thanks for the update, and hope that more will join in on the fun there.

It is for everyone, for creativity and innovation is in all, not just engineers alone. Even a goat herder, if given the opportunity, can contemplete processes which can elevate and make his job easier and raise productivity, which is what TRUE innovation is all about.

Many seem to think that creating the next cellphone app will be the pathway to millions when net providers buy those ideas, or biz grads fantasize that with a huge market capital size, they can dictate the path of stocks and make billions.

But those are not the only ways.

Even engineering and science can not only make it big, but will bring even more lasting improvements to our lives.

-The washing machine, which is an automated robot, helped many a housewife and her backbone from manual labour.
-The simple conveyor belt raised the productivity of many manufacturing plants.
-A far more advanced model of food utensil washer, such as direct feed with water jets from below and fibres to wipe clean those utensils, will greatly enhance the productivity and profibility of restaurants serving mass clients with less demand for cleaners which is a dying profession as more are educated to find or create new or improved forms of biz enterprises and employment in production for the 21st century.
-I can go on and on.

Just plain and simple qualitative ideas, and with the right people and right marketing efforts, if the product is adopted, it can sell to billions around the world and make the innovator a billionaire overnight.

It begins through learning from others who inspired us to creative thinking, and building upon what we have learnt.

Have fun! :-)
