Busy days at the Tallinn Heads of State Digital Summit!

We went to the Tallinn Digital summit last week with our DE-ENIGMA H2020 project. Various European Heads of state interacted with our robot. The DE-ENIGMA robot is developed to help autistic children explore social and emotional skills.


A new robot!!

Meet our new Robot Squirrel, it’s a robot developed in the context of the Squirrel H2020 project.  PhD student Cristina Zaga will carry out research into child robot collaboration with it. Ooh and aah over the arm and hand that can be stowed away to ensure safety. Love the one-eye-one-armedness of this new bot. squirrelbot
