We were invited to visit the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of Washington. They took us on an amazing tour! We loved playing with the robot that they made called Rosie. We liked learning about all the different parts of Rosie. It was fun to make her do things we tell it to, like picking up cups.
We also liked Beam, the robot that would move around where you wanted it to go. It showed the face of the person who was controlling Beam at the same time as displaying what was in front of it.
There are so many neat things going on at UW CS&E; it was fun to learn about all of the things that robots can do. Plus, it is all happening right in our own back yard!
