Automated Chess v2
All that matters on the chessboard is good moves.” -- Bobby Fischer
Ever thought of playing a game of chess with no opponent on the other side? The Chess Automated is an interactive chessboard by which any person can play the game of chess on a physical board with the opponent’s move completely automated. The chess pieces move automatically on the board representing the opponent’s move. Equipped with magnetized chess pieces and auxiliary parking locations Chess Automated also features an option for Chess for the blind. Kshitij 2015 offers you the opportunity to witness this amazing new technology in the game of chess.
“I just want the future to happen faster. I can't imagine the future without robots.” -Nolan Bushnell
Every thought of a present robot leads us to a new robot with more specifications. Bioloid, the most advanced robot system equipped with gyro sensor, IR sensor, and DMS sensor which is programmed with Roboplus C-Language based software solution. Experience the robots which are being used in U.S.Naval Academy and also popular in Robocup International robotics competition. Gear up to have the feel of latest robotic technology and be surprised by the latest technology at IIT Kharagpur.
Science fiction is full of machines that have feelings. The gap between fiction and fact appears vast, but some researchers in the field of artificial intelligence now believe it is only a question of time before it is bridged. ERWIN (Emotional Robot with Intelligent Network) the brainchild of Dr John Murray, from the School of Computer Science, University of Lincoln, UK, is a research program to study long-term relationships that might be developed between humans and androids. ERWIN has the ability to express five basic emotions while interacting with a human. Kshitij 2015 is proud to present this marvellous development in the field of artificial intelligence which will definitely leave you speechless.
Ever thought of the Battalion that includes automated and manually controlled robots used for sundry purposes and are with tough stability??
The Ben-Gurion University Lab, research and development centre of robotics technologies for various applications is equipped with lab personnel who are specialized in all aspects ranging from mechanical design, electronics development, motion planning, state estimation and control algorithms development.
The troop includes four legged robot (Komodo Robot), wall climbing Magnetic robot, Snake like robot, Energy harvesting Robot (from human motion), Lego segway, Ballbot and Lizi robot. These robots depict the new dimension of the existing technology. Kshitij 2015 is proud to host this magnum opus.
Lego Pinpoint Animator
Think back on the coolest LEGO creation you ever made when you were a kid. Maybe it was a tower, or a colorful White House, or a robot that broke the second you tried to make it move. Feeling nostalgic? Well, this lego has got twist as Arthur Sacek, a pioneer in lego technology, has made many astonishing and futuristic designs with it. His previous works include some pretty amazing designs such as lego milling machine, lego clock and lego Saturn V. Over the years, he has progressively designed more and more advanced models with wider applications. Get ready to see his latest innovation in the lego world- the lego portal animator, and be amazed by the dazzling combination of technology and art at Kshitij, IIT Kharagpur.
Perpetual Motion Machines
A perpetuity is an annuity that has no end. The motion when in nature, always tends to cease unless it's not perpetual. Violating the first and the second laws of motion we present the 10 perpetual motion machines that can do work indefinitely without an external boost. These ten machines carry indefinite motion until infinity with negligible loss of energy. These include kinetic pendulum, magnetic gravity motor, besslers’ wheel, the carousel machine and many more. Combination of such translating and rotating machines constitute to an amazing collection of never ending motions.
Be ready at Kshitij 2015 to witness this marvel brought all the way from Canada.
MARC (Multi-Actuated Robotic Companion) is a 3D printed robot created by Dr. John Murray from the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln. Created for the purpose of studying and understanding human-android interactions and relationships, the design of MARC is supplied by the open source project InMoov. Marc is styled as a humanoid robot with multiple degrees of freedom and points of articulation.
Kshitij is proud to present this marvelous development in the field of Human-Robotic interactions which will definitely leave you speechless.
