Since our groundbreaking Baxter robot was first introduced to research and educational teams in 2013, our amazing customers have wowed us here at Rethink Robotics with their work, their creativity and their boundless energy. This one goes out to you.
We love seeing your published work, watching the videos you share, and hearing your presentations. You use Baxter every day to solve real-world problems, whether it’s in research, manufacturing, or education. That’s what the Baxter robot is all about – making our lives better – and your work tells that story every day.
We live for this stuff, and it’s time for us to give back to you, the Baxter users around the world. We are pleased to announce our first Rethink Robotics Video Challenge designed to reward Baxter users with more of the robot they know and love. That’s right – we’re offering a chance to win a free Baxter robot simply by showcasing the great work you’re already doing with it.
The first step is simple. Send us a brief paragraph about your work, based on one of three categories, identified in the contest details, between now and October 9. If you’re selected to move on to the next round, we’ll ask you to submit a video depicting your entry by November 20. Finalists will be selected by December 4 and a grand prize winner will be announced on or around December 11.
For a detailed run-down of how this will work, take a look here at the full details and official rules.
So, who’s up for the challenge?
