List of some of the events that the IdMind was involved recently:
ELROB 2006 - 1st European Land-Robot Trial
28 team signed for this event, from which only 18 were able to participate, including IdMind. The robot participated in the Urban trial, where it had to cross several types of terrain and inspect ruined houses, with little or no illumination at all, and to cross obstacles like stairs or rocks. The robot was also in the exhibition, where many representatives of military and civilian institutes around Europe expressed their interest in the robot. The Elrob organization has kindly made available some photos.

Lisbon Art - Modern art Fair
Leonel Moura with IdMind presents a new Robot in Lisbon Art.
iSculpture (Intelligent Sculpture) is a work of art capable of detecting the presence of spectators, getting closer and interacting with then in a way that defines their bodies dimension. iSculpture reverses the traditional relation between spectator and art: in this case is the work of art that observes and the spectator that is observed.
