Nodecopter Cincinnati
Nodecopter — Sat Sept 7th

Overview

Join us for the first Cincinnati NodeCopter event. We are programming flying robots on September 7th for the whole day. We'll start at around 9am on Saturday and hack until around 4pm. Then we'll have a demo.

This is a hack day. The programming happens in teams of three persons. Each team receives one Parrot AR Drone 2.0 and spends the day programming and playing with it. Each team decides among themselves what drone programming project to do. At the end of the day, there is a demo session where each team gets to present their work.
