On June 16, the East Side Fab (ESF) in cooperation with places2x, htw saar, fitt gGmbH and the HBKsaar organized this year’s maker day in Saarbrücken. The event was a full-day challenge for a robotics prototying, where new robitics prototypes as well as business models were developed in a playful way.
The participants, who came from a wide variety of backgrounds – from students to scientists, founders to makers – were able to give free rein to their creativity in four groups. True to the motto “Reinvent the wheel,” innovations could be looked at freely and in all possible directions, so that meaningful concepts could be presented at the end of the day.
Ali Kanso, project manager of the Robotix-Academy, supported the participants in their group work and gave valuable suggestions for the respective prototyping.
