Summer is on and we were so thrilled to join the young generation at VIBE Festival 2022 in Târgu-Mureș, Transylvania, Romania! Codespring | Softech software development team also sponsored the event, namely its educational activities at VIBE Koli. Between June 30 and July 3, Codespring organized each day a few technology in use demos and explainer activities.
Tech Fun at Codespring Tent
The main attraction of Codespring tent were the fun games with tech gadgets prepared especially for the festival attendees! The visitors got the chance to meet and handle a few robots:
- The Sphero robot – a programmable robot great for driving, gaming, and teaching the basics of coding and computer science.
- The Robot Alpha from Ubitech – a fun and easily programmable humanoid robot that can be used for education, research and entertainment. Its 16 high-torque digital robotic servos create fluid movement allowing the robot to be as flexible as a human.
- The Robo Master:
- The Robot Arm, Line-Us: an internet connected robot drawing arm. It is really small, portable and draws with a nice wobbly line using a real pen on paper.
Stand visitors were also challenged to immerse in the VR (virtual reality) world with some fun games via the Oculus VR Glasses.
And the best thing (!) was that everyone could win some nice Codespring prizes, in tune with the festival days: sunglasses, belt bags or water bottles!
