Believe it or not, it's already been one week since the RUC ended. Our event photographer Frédéric Nadeau did some filming when he had some time to spare. He then came up with this feel good video, which reflects the great times everyone had last week. See it for yourself!

TV, Internet, Newspaper and Radio

A lot of people talked about us during the last week. Here's a recap of the media coverage so far:

Dave Perkon from Control Design was the first to speak about Lean Robotics in this exclusive article.'s Ian Wright wrote about the 24-hour Robot challenge using the Lean Robotics methodology and tools on this great overview article of the RUC.

Our long-time friend Tom Green from Asian Robotics Review was in Canada for a series on Canadian Robotics. Here's his recap from the RUC.

Both Lean Robotics and Insights were discussed on IMPO, one of the manufacturing medias who attended the RUC.

Machine Design Technology Editor Jeff Kerns was also on-site during the event. While his blog article is expected next week, the live coverage he did on his Twitter account has to be mentioned. During the whole two and a half days of the RUC, Jeff, a Mechanical Engineer himself, kept everyone posted on the action in an interesting, passionate and educational way.
