A year came to an end, and a new one just began.. it will be filled with new challenges, exciting projects, and sometimes changes for you and us.
It was a great year for Génération Robots, filled with new exchanges, travels, partnerships, new robots and cool products! We are starting this new year with a big thank you to all of you, who shared 2017 with us!
You may have bought a robot on our website to introduce your kids to the joys of robotics, or maybe you work at a robotic club (or a fablab), or you are a researcher in a big laboratory, the founder of a high tech startup or the designer of a great robot..
We thank you again for using our services or the products we distribute. We’ll keep on putting human values first in our robotic adventure!
So, what happened in 2017 for Génération Robots ?
Our team is getting bigger ! 🙂
Welcome to Anja (Marketing and Sales Manager for Germany, she’s also the one behind our @GenRob_Deutsch Twitter profile), Paul (Research Engineer, our embedded electronics specialist), Nicolas (Research Engineer that really knows his way around Rethink Robotics Sawyer robot) and Stéphanie (our very smily executive assistant who always supports our CEO the best she can!).
A brand new website for our engineering department (only in French atm)
Génération Robots, it’s also an engineering department in robotics. We’ve got a team of 8 engineers who create and deploy solutions in robotics (personal robotics and professional robotics) . We also have a research and development pole. Find out more on our new website !
An ever-growing product range
We’re always on the lookout for little gems or future or soon-to-be classics.
Amongst our new products in 2017 were: the Dagoma 3D printers, Ozobot, the Keylo robot, Dobot robot arm, Cubetto, BRIXO, Turtlebot3, BBC micro:bit, Bare Conductive, and more!
Our first apps for Pepper
Our GR Lab (our engineering department) created 2 apps for the Pepper robot: Pepper Welcome (a meet & greet app) and Smart Pepper (a modular business app).
Some trade shows and more trade shows!
We went on the road in 2017! We attended many trade fairs last year, amongst which:
Educatec, Innorobo, Bordeaux Geek Festival, CARSAT, Bordeaux Scratch Conference, Robot Maker’s Day, Colloque GEII, Pepper World, Code Week Germany, Maker Faire Bergstraße…
What will happened in 2018?
Our German adventure
In 2017, we welcomed Anja to our team and we focused on the German market. In 2018, we’ll pursue our efforts and will open our first subsidiary in Germany! Our team dedicated to this country will be there to help you in all your robotics projects.
New brands and super cool products waiting to be added!
As usual, we are planning to add really interesting products to our catalogue. We’ll be adding a lot of new components and structure parts so that you have everything at hand to build your own robot from scratch!
More trade shows and even more trade shows…
…we’ll be started off with our first booth at the biggest Education trade fair: Didacta. It will take place in Hanover, Germany. Be amongst the 70 000 visitors expected and come see us!
In 2017, we also created our first Instagram profile, have a look to see what we are up to!
