Turns out that Dot Net North is a great place to go and talk about robots. It's in Manchester and they run regular events about technology. Pete had offered me a chance to take along some Hull Pixelbots and explain that they are all about. Great fun. You can find the explanation here.
We had Pizza, and at the end a Robot Carrying Cheese Race.
The audience was splendid, most things worked (although one of the cheese carrying robots could probably have used some new batteries).
