A four-year-long journey is about to reach its new base camp. In about a week, on November 4, the i-Botics Avatar Team will join 16 competitors in Long Beach, CA, for the last showdown at the XPrize Finals. The prize: 10 million dollars.
You can read the story of our team in this article, The Road to the Finals. From the first ideas to a successful semi-final where we were able to operate EVE and ANYmal from hundreds of kilometres away.
Now starts the next chapter as our team members board their planes. EVE has followed the trail of our early ancestors to the USA by boat. A nice reminder of the fact that even the latest innovations might still rely on the innovative powers of the past. You never know the size of your innovation footprint.
