Event Details

The Summer of Drones is a chance for local hackers to spend a day playing with Parrot.AR Drones : programmable, flying robots. Participants will compete in teams of three or four to produce the most useful, novel or interesting hacks. These might be new control schemes (using a Kinect or joystick), real-world applications (like following a path or person) or even a game. At the end, community judges will choose the best applications.  

Note: You must register before Wednesday, July 10th. We won't be accepting new registrations at the door.

No previous experience with robots is required! You can program the drones in many languages, including: Ruby, Python, Node.js and Perl.
