Creating a Robot that Stars in a Microsoft Surface Commercial
January 8th
6:30 PM (2 hours)

You can see Dave Shinsel’s latest robot creation in this Microsoft Surface commercial.

Dave’s latest robot is a “work in progress”.  He will bring the robot to the the January 8 meeting, and talk about the hardware design and fabrication (3D printing, etc.), with lessons learned, current state of software (using ROS), and the next steps to make this robot autonomous.

Dave recently retired from Intel where he was the Lead Robotics Architect in Intel’s Perceptual Computing Group. He has an extensive background in all levels of robotics, with particular focus on vision and sensing technologies. Prior to this role, Dave was the Director of the Intel® RealSense SDK, created and led the Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers, and led development of the graphics drivers for the Apple MacBook* Air. In his “spare time,” Dave has been building robots for fifteen years. He has received a "Backyard Genius Award" from Popular Mechanics magazine, won a number of robot competitions, and competed on TV in the Syfy Channel’s Robot Combat League, where he and his daughter (also an engineer at Intel) won the 0,000 grand prize with their 7 foot, 9 inches tall, fighting robot, "Crash." Dave is well known in the Maker community for his sophisticated 4 foot tall humanoid robot, Loki.
