A fund-raising event held by LARICS

On Wednesday, 19th December, the LARICS team held a fund-raising event for the Autism Association Zagreb, where the robots from their Laboratory worked together to serve visitors with chocolate waffles, brownies and tea or mulled wine. This innovative event was visited by over 2000 people and some 700 orders were taken and served, which resulted in a wonderful amount of over 13 thousand kuna (almost €2000) in donations, all of which will be given to the Autism Association Zagreb.

The humanoid robot Pepper took the visitors' orders, the robot arm Franka prepared them and the industrial robot Baxter (owned by LAMOR) served the orders. NAO robots were active during the whole event to keep everyone entertained, while guests also had the opportunity to try out STEMI Hexapods, see what the Lab's Sphero robots can do and get pick out a Christmas-themed keychain printed during the day on a 3D printer.
