Call for Volunteers!

general

As part of the team for Inmoov Robots for Good we are making a call out for volunteers to participate in our launch of the project in Somerset House hosted from June 5- July 19 2015.

The InMoov Robots for Good project will allow children in hospital to visit the London Zoo from their room using virtual reality. Our ultimate aim is to provide an open access human size 3D-Printed robot/ avatar for hospitalised children and adults to visit locations outside the hospital or to join in family activities. The interface will allow for a fully immersive experience of the robots’s environment, as it is remotely controlled by the patient from their hospital bed or room. All the files and blueprints for this project are free for anybody to download and build upon.  The project is a global collaboration of designers, engineers, hackers and makers world-wide.

The volunteers will be helping out with hosting visitors into the room on the ground floor of Somerset House where project will be exhibited and assembled from June 5- July 19 2015. We need your help with being in the room, welcoming visitors and explaining about the project, but most excitingly you will also have a chance in taking part in the live building, assembly and design of the Inmoov Robot itself using exciting technologies such as 3D printing, Virtual Reality and Robotics. We can be flexible on how much time you are able to commit.

If you are interested in helping us out in a truly exciting global project that has drawn the interest from hackspaces & maker fares around the world, Microsoft, London Zoo, the Great Ormond Street Hospital School and hospitals in New York, Canada and Amsterdam and many more please contact us on:  info@robotsforgood.com

Your help and participation will be truly valuable to our efforts!
