Ez-Con

I think we need to stage an EZ-Con where everyone brings their robots and we get to meet DJ and his staff. Maybe get some vendors to sponsor who can set up their tables and sell stuff that DJ doesn't carry. It could be great way to show off stuff, get ideas, and share information. Plus meet folks we have only talked to electronically.

Just an idea.

Maybe something central US like if they do a big Maker Faire in Chicago or Dallas - major air hubs, Chicago is also easy to get to by train, and probably easier to get a bot on a train than a plane - I work for Amtrak:)

Yea I would definitely come , I'm sure rc companys would come. Also robot manufacturers ,irobot , Monroe tronics , robot store , maybe even someone who competes in battle bots (robot wars) could Be a guest? Anykind of comicon /sci fit it may be a.hit too

I like the idea of piggy-backing on some kind of existing con or event. I have been involved in putting on festivals and I know people who are involved in cons, and they are a huge amount of work, and a lot of money (with a huge amount of financial risk). Not something for a small start-up company like EZ-Robot to take on this early in their life. Could be a huge success, or could bankrupt them.

Lol I would probably have my bot sitting upright in passanger seat with seatbelt on (safety first kids!) Just to freakout the other drivers lol. I'm all about having a booth at a event or somthing , that way we all have other booths/events going on there for all of us to enjoy. I know the holy grail of shows is anything.that.happens in las vegas

I think a Canadian showing in Calgary would be a great idea only how do we convince a 1 million pop. cow town that robots are cool! *sick*

Well how do you guys feel about coming up to Calgary on April 27-29? The Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo is happening that weekend and maybe you guys can convince DJ to rent a table. I think it might be a bit more convenient for him to pack up his robots for a 15 minute drive rather than trying to fly (or drive) the entourage across the continent:D

Oh and did I mention that Banff is only an hour away? Think about it!

Indeed a great idea ! Even though I'm coming from Europe I would still like to come over. April is pretty soon I guess, unless it's in April 2013. Let's hope the Maya's miscalculated and we're still around...

I think the Mayans just ran out of room on the rock, at least that's what I'm counting on. I agree that this April is pretty soon for me. I was hoping more in the Fall. But Amanda Tapping...........
