Complex Low-Cost Robotics – Lighting Talk at Datenspuren 2015

Hi there, I did a small lightning talk at the Datenspuren 2015. I expect the talk to be recorded but not published yet. All videos will be available at the Dataspuren Recordings Page. But in case you want to show the slides to somebody download them here.

Talk is online (my part starts at min 37:45) . Because linking didn’t really work, I cut the original video and uploaded my five minutes to youtube. The talk is in German, but I’ve added english subtitles:

To see the mentioned robot in action, you can see this little video I posted some time ago.

Do not hesitate to contact me, I am kinda available to hire and traveling through vienna the next week 🙂
