Robot Block Party

Robotics is all about serious research and hard core tech, right? Well, you might change your mind after watching a robot dance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. That’s exactly what happened to me at this year’s Robot Block Party. Held at Stanford’s Volkswagen Automotive Innovation Lab (which is home to research on autonomous vehicles), the event was part of National Robotics Week and featured the latest…
