To bring together roboticists, researchers and disabled people across Europe and the world.
Our group uses robots and other consumer technologies to expand the reach of those us with profound disabilities. Whether those robots are used to scratch an itch or visit a museum half a world away, robots have a central place in the future of assistive technology.
We raise awareness of the project through giving talks at conferences, running online campaigns, and by reaching out to members of the press.
We will start our own projects where possible, dependent upon funding and good ideas! Keep an eye out for a quadriplegic enabled Quadcopter.
At the momentresources we have available are: (1) the time and energy of the founder Stuart Turner,(2) an accessibility consultant, (3) a web developer and (4) access to advice from professors from a couple of top universities.
Partnering with more universities is a top priority for Robots and Cake!. We use whichever communication channels are necessary to find universities engaged in robotics research and asking to be involved. Simple, but it's worked so far.
