If you like robots, cutting edge computer technology and world-fair-like exhibits showcasing our amazing future, then you’re going to love the upcoming Wired Nextfest. I am especially looking forward to playing with and photographing the aforementioned robots! In fact I sifted through the Nextfest pavilion exhibitors and preened a list of what I thought would be the most interesting robots, which I posted on eecue.com.
Also of note (and with robot) is the Spoon show featuring Keepon the super-cute and funky-head-bobbing yellow robot, whom my wife described as a “dancing twinkie.” The show is a benefit for one my favorite things, Creative Commons (all my photos and writing are licensed under CC). You can read more about the show and buy tickets here.
Wired Nextfest takes place September 13th through the 16th in the South Hall of the LA Convention Center. Tickets will run you $20 if you’re and adult, $15 with a student ID, and kids 2-12 are $5.
[Full Disclosure: I may possibly be shooting the event for Wired for pay, but that doesn’t play a factor in me being excited about the robots!]
