Team of Cambridge students invent robot to compete in a new high-tech event: The “Rowbot” Race.


Since 1829, The Boat Race has pitted the best rowers from Oxford and Cambridge against one another in an annual regatta watched by millions.

But now a team of Cambridge students have invented a robot they think can better human athletes -  and have challenged their rivals to compete in a new high-tech event: The “Rowbot” Race.
Over the past eight months, a team of engineers, comprising five students from Peterhouse College, have created a machine which mirrors a human’s rowing technique.

From 8th grade science fair project robotic arm to changing the world

"Putting heart into robotics: Easton LaChappelle

Curiosity led young inventor Easton LaChappelle to dedicate six years creating accessible artificial limb technology that may eventually change the lives of people around the world – and it all started with one young girl...

 ...When Easton LaChappelle submitted a robotic arm for his 8th grade science fair, he wasn’t expecting it to turn into something so much bigger. But on that day, after meeting a little girl whose basic prosthetic arm had cost her family more than $80,000, he found his purpose. Ever since, he’s worked with determination and Microsoft tools to create affordable and exceptional robotic technology that could go on to benefit people in need of artificial limbs, as well as building the business to make it all happen."
