Welcome to RoboNationYou are invited to our RoboSocial.
What is the RoboNation? Its a community where you can interact with others who share your interests in robotics. Its a place where you can offer your ideas and be inspired by others. Enjoy videos, photos, music playlists and animated conversation about robotics.
RoboNation is also a portal. There are many, many robotics activities that exist worldwide. RoboNation is here to guide you on what's out there and help you find the programs that are right for you.
It’s the rise of the robots (or robotics enthusiasts)! Join our RoboSocial!

Meet Robotics Enthusiast Extraordinaire, Dr. Zoz BrooksEducator, TV personality and self-proclaimed geek
Dr. Zoz Brooks is an engineer, artist, roboticist, hacker, teacher and international TV personality. His research focuses on engineering strategies for improving human-robot communication. based on work undertaken at the MIT Media Laboratory's Robotic Life Group. Besides human-robot interaction he maintains wide research interests in rapid prototyping and computer-controlled fabrication techniques. He co-hosted the internationally broadcast Discovery Channel television series Prototype This!, in which a small team of engineers was tasked with creating techincally challenging, never-before seen prototypes in a time span of two weeks.
Zoz is here to educate and entertain you, and he's your video host and link to what's happening at AUVSI Foundation's RoboBoat Competition, RoboSub Competition, and Student Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) Competition.
