We are being hosted by one of Bristol’s most exciting robotics companies this month. We have three speakers who will each give a walkthrough of how they got to work in tech and what bought them to Reach Robotics. There will also be an overview of Reach Robotics and what it does and we will get to meet mekamon!

Here’s a chance to find out more.
It’s midweek. The weekend feels a long way away. So come and get your geek on with XMOS.
We’ll take you (quickly) through the science of voice and explain how our technology is able to capture voice and strip out background noise – even from across the room and when you’re speaking softly. We’ll also demonstrate our voice-capture development kits and give you a sneak preview into the new areas we’re working on.
We don’t have a talking toaster – but we do have a lamp with attitude, an LED array you won’t forget and a look at what’s possible when you merge voice with radar technology. And if that doesn’t convince you, then we’ve got plenty of anecdotes about questions that are best left unasked of your voice assistant!
The talk will be led by our XMOS girl geeks
