Hectic Haptics Hackathon
This is an invitation to our first hands-on workshop on Telepresence, Teleoperation, Embodiment & Haptics. We’ll form multidisciplinary groups and tinker with hardware, software & methods to create new telepresence/operation experiences. Let’s get inspired, ask questions and think about how to answer them!

12:00 - Lunch
