The Robochop project
The news industrial internet trends were able to allow Robochop to materialize. Reed Kram and Clemens Weisshaar, the two German designers designed this project to allow to remotely control object manufacturing via four robot arms KUKA KR60. These are specially recognized for being of a precision without limits. During the show, internet users and visitors were able to access the interface to control the cuts of some 2,000 polystyrene cubes. And each his imagination for create sculptures or furniture, Why not after all.

The new era of IoT will push us to consume more and more new technologies, "And it is obvious that not everyone can learn to code" as co-founder Oriol Fuertes says.
It will therefore be possible to create your own application dedicated to his needs. The most commonly cited example is that ofoptimize the energy consumption of machines in a chemical plant. It's because of sensors placed on objects that the user has selected that he will be able to use pre-registered functions on the platform.
