Next Wednesday night, we'll be taking a redeye out to Florida for the DARPA Robotics Challenge. There'll be a media briefing on Thursday afternoon, and the trials themselves will run all day Friday and Saturday, with a robotics expo and demos running at the same time. Saturday night is the closing ceremony, with a media briefing to follow. As we mentioned last week, there will be extensive live coverage (including streaming video) provided by DARPA itself, and we'll be getting you all the details on that after the Thursday media briefing.
As far as our coverage goes, we understand that there's going to be a lot of media at this event, so what we're going to try and do is bring you the sorts of stories that you're not likely to find anywhere else, with the level of detail that (we hope) you know and love. And if there are specific things that you'd like to see, make sure and let us know. Meanwhile, here's one or two videos to tide you over until the action starts next week.
