The event and magazine are made for each other. Since 1872, Popular Science has reported on the intersection of science, emerging technologies and everyday life, with an eye toward what is new and why it matters. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that Popular Science have joined with the developers and sponsors of RoboNexus to alert the world that we are witnessing the birth of a new technology industry, with a vast array of new robotics technologies and applications appearing at an increasing rate, from personal robotics products to business and military applications.”According to Eliot Weinman, CEO and Co-Founder of Robotics Trends, “RoboNexus was designed and developed with a world-class advisory board and contains the most comprehensive series of conferences, seminars and educational sessions ever produced in the U.S., all covering how emerging robotics technologies and applications are playing important roles in society. It also boasts of a complete consumer and entertainment expo. In addition to presenting five different conferences with over 50 world class robotics experts, RoboNexus will house over 50,000 square feet of exhibit space at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Silicon Valley is where the personal computer gave birth, and we believe that as the birthplace of the personal computer industry, the Valley is the best place in the world to showcase state-of-the-art robotics technology. We believe that in the future, RoboNexus will be viewed as a seminal event in the birth of the first new technology industry of the 21st century.”RoboNexus sponsors include: founding sponsor iRobot, premiere sponsor Wany Robotics, platinum sponsor Evolution Robotics and association sponsor Robotics Foundry.
