I have some good news to share, that I have been selected to conduct a workshop at this year's FABLABS conference which happens in Shenzen, China (August 8-14, 2016). I would be conducting a robotics workshop - DIY Wall-E - which aims to build a personal service robot for home use. The bot is aimed to help you serve drinks, bring in snacks or just follow you where you want to.
About FabLab Con:
Each year members of the more than 1,000 worldwide Fab Labs gather to share, collaborate, explore and, of course, fabricate.
In August 2016 we meet in Shenzhen, China a historically important city for manufacturing and making. Today China is embarking on a long-term program to foster innovation and technology, so the city is a perfect incubator for the digital fabrication revolution fab labs are bringing to the world.

In order to make this happen, I would be incurring a cost of INR 80k (USD 1200).

My living expenses add up another 30,000 for the week's stay there.

A Hardcore Mechanical Engineer at heart, who build India's first Batpod. I've build several projects for different organizations and have spoken about my work at several conferences and events.
