Complete video at: As technology advances, is the line between man and machine becoming blurred? Nicola Rohrseitz, founder and CEO of ViSSee, discusses two recently developed devices that augment human body systems. ----- Robot Revolution: From the Lab to the World Swiss university spin-offs flex their robotic muscle in honor of the International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS). Hear from the hottest companies and researchers and interact with a robot that balances on a ball, a service bot that acts as a guide, and a pair of tiny fliers. The future in which robots are a normal part of everyday life, present in your car, your home, your office, is here. Technologies that were once only the subject of university research are now making their way to market. And a number of Swiss companies that began in academia are leading the pack. In conjunction with the International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), swissnex San Francisco brings you an evening of some of the hottest robotic spin-offs and inventions bubbling up from university labs. - swissnex San Francisco Nicola Rohrseitz is the founder and CEO of the Swiss start-up ViSSee. He studied Microengineering at the EPFL, conducting his M.Sc. thesis in Underwater Robotics at the University of Tokyo in 2005. By applying control theory techniques to free flying fruit flies during his Ph.D. in Physics and Neuroscience at the ETH Zurich, he discovered disruptive computational ...
