This Robot Convention NYC features hobbyists who play around with robots on the side as well as professionals looking to make advances in robotics.

What to Expect: New York Botacon showcases the brilliant and hilarious minds of robotic lovers, and it also features plenty of cool robot designs.

  • New: New conventions are always very exciting since it is a chance for everyone to see a ton of new faces. New York Botacon should be no exception, as the quirky and creative minds of robotics developers will be meeting others that share the passion.
